People going OTT and calling the Henderson/Milner/Wijnaldum midfield sh*t are wide of the mark. It is solid and has done well this season, and won plenty of games and points. So it obviously isn’t terrible. Not by a long way.They almost won us the CL. So I'll go with Klopp's choice, thanks.
That said, something prompted Jürgen to spend the best part of £100M on two midfielders, even after the amazing CL run.
I think things are being done in an orderly fashion. The incumbents are good, but in time we will see more and more of the new boys until they become mainstays in the side. To my mind Fabinho offers what Henderson does, but with better forward passing. It has taken a while for him to get up to speed, and there have been mistakes, but he’s there now. It doesn’t mean he won’t ever make another mistake, but I think he is ready to play more often than not now. As for Keita, he has had a slow start too, and has also been hampered by one or two niggly injuries. When he is up to speed I fully expect to see his dribbling and speed on the turn in midfield opening teams up.
It remains to be seen but I think Fabinho, Wijnaldum and Keita will prove to be the better trio, but we can’t disrespect Henderson and Milner.
