Jermaine Jenas has urged Jurgen Klopp to restore Jordan Henderson to Liverpool's starting lineup for their trip to Tottenham on Sunday.

The BBC pundit watched in midweek as the German dropped the England midfielder to the bench against Maribor, choosing to field James Milner instead.


That change helped yield Liverpool's biggest-ever result away from home in the Champions League (7-0), and some have called for the quietly impressive Milner to retain his place for the trip to Wembley - but that is not a view shared by Jenas.

Speaking to BT Sport, as quoted by The Sport Review, he said: "I would say Henderson will play that game. 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."

The former Sunderland man has had his critics in recent weeks as fans have searched for scapegoats during their side's run of poor form.

Henderson has had a particularly rough ride, along with summer signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, with many asking what the 27-year-old brings to the team.

Klopp will be desperate to pick up three points at Wembley in what is definitely their biggest game of the season so far - the Reds lie eighth and are rapidly losing ground on their top four rivals.
