Mark Lawrenson believes Jordan Henderson is facing a battle to retain his place in Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool FC side.

The former Sunderland star has blossomed into a key star under the former Borussia Dortmund head coach.

Henderson was handed the captain’s armband following Steven Gerrard’s move to Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy.

The 27-year-old has blossomed into one of the Premier League’s top midfielders despite the added responsibility.

Henderson produced vital performances in Liverpool FC’s victories over FC Porto, Manchester City and AS Roma in the Champions League knockout phase.

Liverpool FC lost 3-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League final to prompt a summer of investment at Anfield.

Klopp signed AS Monaco holding midfielder Fabinho, RB Leipzig star Naby Keita and Stoke City playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri to add more depth to their options in the middle of the park.

Former Liverpool FC defender Lawrenson believes Henderson’s position in the Reds team is under threat following an exciting summer transfer window.

“He is vulnerable,” Lawrenson told Irish radio station Newstalk.

“He knows he might not be in the team. He is a good lad. He is under pressure. The manager likes him.”

The Reds haven’t won the Premier League title but finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.

Liverpool FC are still waiting to win their first trophy under German coach Klopp.
