However, former Sunderland star Phillips recommends Henderson as a possible alternative to Fabinho if he needs another center-back.
“You wouldn’t say that Gomez started the season well, but last night (against Sheffield United) will have helped him and he keeps getting better,” said Phillips Football insider.
Hopefully Gomez and Fabinho can form a partnership that can stand the test of time before Virgil van Dijk comes back.
“I’ll get it out of there, I actually think Jordan Henderson could play in the middle. I think he has this knowledge and know-how. He has the energy, the pace, and the range to pass.
“I think he could surprise people and fill the gap that van Dijk left in the middle.”
How Liverpool got along without Van Dijk, Klopp said at yesterday’s press conference: “Every team in the world would miss Virgil van Dijk.
“He’s the best in the world. You play a game, he gets injured and you play three days later. It’s difficult of course because all the guys played with him and it didn’t take us long to get used to playing without him.
“Fabinho, who usually plays as a six, had to play with Joe (Gomez). We did pretty well for that and it will be 100 percent better because unfortunately everything in life takes time and defense takes time.
“You’ve all played with Virgil at some point, but not often have they played together, so we don’t expect perfection – but not too far from perfection.
“Everyone takes time to replace a massive person or player. Virgil is the best defender in the world and we’ve done pretty well so far. ”
