  • Liverpool were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid in the Champions League final

Liverpool's first clash of the Premier League season is against West Ham on Sunday and Henderson says he'd understand if he didn't feature.

The Reds will go into their fixture against the Serie A side at Anfield with Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez as their only two fit senior centre halves, with Ragnar Klavan, Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip all struggling with minor knocks.

But we want to know which ones make it into the starting line-up for the opener against West Ham at Anfield on Sunday. "I didn't need the final proof in and around the World Cup or in last season".

Liverpool have added Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson to their ranks this summer as Klopp sought to improve the overall depth of his squad.

Brazil's number one, who impressed with his performances at the World Cup finals in Russian Federation, will take over the gloves from Loris Karius, who made two mistakes in the Reds' Champions League final defeat.

Klopp has an nearly irreplaceable front three at his disposal at Liverpool, but should one of them suffer an injury or receive a suspension, the German has little in reserve apart from Ings and Danirl Sturridge.

"I was not surprised, to be honest, but as a human being I was hoping for it, that it would be like this. More consistency - we were not inconsistent, but we can be more consistent", he said. "It was a really big gesture".

Henderson played a crucial role in England's run to the semi-finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but his club manager asserted that he didn't need to see the midfielder's displays in Russian Federation to be convinced of his qualities.

"I am not sure but it is Hendo".

"He was in a really good shape, so we thought a few minutes tonight should be possible".

"He is a very important option but I have no clue what we will do at the weekend".
