I agree to a certain extent, but I think it is a formation issue rather than a personnel issue in midfield that exposes our back line, although we are definitely lacking a midfield destroyer. Henderson doesn't have the game reading, positioning or selflessness to play the role effectively, but is Klopp likely to ditch the Captain from the side?They go hand in hand. The lack of nous, mobility, and spine in the middle of the park leaves that back line far more exposed than they should be.
The CB's are appalling in general. Matip looks good on the ball, but I am seriously unconvinced by his defending in general. He is no leader at the back either. Lovren and Klaven need sold, ASAP. Sakho was by far our best DEFENDER, but got binned for being a clown off the pitch. We are left with clowns on the pitch in his place.
Mignolet is a good shot stopper, everything else he is shite at. Kicking, shite. Physicality, shite. Commanding his defence, shite. Dominating his box, shite. Karius looks like he is cut out of the same cloth as Mignolet, but he is young still for a keeper, so i'll holdfire on a final judgement. Fullbacks are seriously unconvincing bar Trent who looks a real prosect, and Robertson, who still has it all to prove.
