Jurgen Klopp told 27-year-old leader should start Tottenham v Liverpool FC
Jermaine Jenas believes Jordan Henderson deserves to come back into the Liverpool FC team for Sunday's trip to Tottenham Hotspur
Jermaine Jenas has urged Jurgen Klopp to restore Jordan Henderson to the Liverpool team for their visit to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
The Reds will be hoping to make a swift return to winning ways in the Premier League following successive stalemates with Newcastle United and Manchester United.
Liverpool were forced to settle for a frustrating goalless draw with their bitter rivals Manchester United despite Klopp’s men registering 20 shots on target.
The Merseyside outfit were 7-0 winners against Maribor in the Champions League on Tuesday night to secure their first three points of the group-stage campaign.
James Milner replaced Henderson in midfield for Liverpool’s biggest-ever win on the road in the Champions League ahead of this weekend’s trip to White Hart Lane.
Tottenham battled to a 1-1 draw with Champions League holders Real Madrid at The Bernabeu after Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty cancelled out Raphael Varane’s own goal.
Former Spurs midfielder Jenas believes Liverpool captain Henderson should come back into the Reds team despite Milner’s performance at Maribor mid-week.
“I would say Henderson will play that game,” Jenas told BT Sport.
“I would say he has a number of players who are close in that area. I don’t think the team is a foregone conclusion every week.
“Henderson is the captain of the team and he has played most of the games this year.”
Liverpool signed four players in the summer transfer window after Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Andy Robertson and Dominic Solanke moved to Anfield.
The Reds have agreed a £48m deal to sign Naby Keita from RB Leipzig next summer.
