Klopp set to compound Leicester's misery

The trip to Leicester - which Henderson is definitively out for - is just the second league game of the season that the Reds' No.14 will have missed this season after the draw at Sunderland in early January.

Manager Jurgen Klopp called Leicester's decision to fire Ranieri "mystifying" this week, and it's not surprising the likable German was disappointed to see a fellow manager suffer such a fate.

But that they are so charitable against struggling sides could see their business in the off-season affected, with premier players not quite inclined to move without a diet of Champions League football. That's the real problem. That's not even close to being enough.

"Since I've been here he has been a really important player for all our development steps which we made - not only for him personally".

"There is no reason at this moment for this". On the flip side though, he thinks Liverpool will beat Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday.

The Premier League title holders are languishing in the relegation zone, have just sacked the manager who led them to their greatest ever triumph and up until Monday night, they had yet to score a league goal this year. "That's what we have to do", he added.

"I have a lot of time together with the players but I am not in the dressing room so you need to have players there too and he is one of them". We can be much better, we have shown it already. "We are all playing for our future here", he told Sky Sports News.

"Thank God we don't have to play again tomorrow!"
