    Gomez is shaky and Fabs out, are we fucked or does Henderson now come in and try to do a decent job?

    The only reason why Henderson played as a CB was because we had no one else. Van Dijk, Matip, Lovren and Fabinho were injured.
    The squad we travelled with only had one other CB, van den Berg. Anyone with a brain would go with Hendo.
    This time around we do have Williams and Koumetio and Philips. Also, it's not entirely clear if Matip is unavailable.

    So, yeah Hendo stays in midfield.

    So with Keita, Ox, Fabinho and Thiago unavailable the idea is to move our only decent midfielder into defence so that we could field Wjinaldum Milner and Jones in the middle of the park

    I think Hendo is going to play there at the weekend. It's only a matter of time before Gomez breaks down too, by the way.

    Gomez has not been shaky at all since VvD was injured. The opposite in fact.

    Will Keita and Thiago be unavailable ? I know Klopp said they weren't ready for last night but I'd be surprised if at least one, if not both, were not back for West Ham.

    Gomez has actually been very solid since pickford's hatchet job, mate...  Now, I worry he'll break down again in a matter of munites, but his performances have stepped up nicely, so far.

    The change to LCB might be a blessing as it means opponents cutting in get onto his strong side which benefits him, and maybe even the extra diligence required building rapport with Robbo on the left too is helping.

    I wonder did TPG, whose initials are PTG ever work for GPT (on Edge Lane)?

    I did, but its no matter as it's not an anagram of FTB

    This could take Gomez's game to the next level, he's always been the junior/quieter partner.

    If he has Williams beside him, he has to take responsibility that he hasn't needed to so far.

    Think that was the real reason Klopp Subbed him half time, with the veiw that he may have to play  him as a make shift center back vs West ham

    Its entirely possible that being on the same side of the defence as Trent wasnt helping him. Trent has a tendency to get caught way out of position or press an opponent and leave a huge gap in behind. With Robbo and Mané on the left he shouldn't be caught in no mans land as much and maybe setlle down a bit

    Henderson is being handled well due to coming back from injury. We are just managing his fitness.

    Matip will be good to go on Saturday.

    I just read that he's unlikely to even face City.
    He's played less than 250 minutes since November ...
