Liverpool head to Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon seeking to maintain their push for the top four in the Premier League, although the Reds will be without captain Jordan Henderson
Jurgen Klopp has made just one change to the starting lineup from Liverpool’s 7-0 triumph over Manchester United last weekend, with Stefan Bajcetic replacing captain Jordan Henderson.
The England international is currently on the bench for the Merseyside club, and Klopp has indicated that the substitution was made due to illness. “Hendo had a bit of a cold, but other than that, Stefan comes in, the rest is the same,” the German coach remarked before the game. After playing last Sunday, we don’t need to make any major changes, so we’ll stick with the same lineup.”

Henderson is no longer as vital to Liverpool as he once was, but he remains an important presence in the squad and in guiding the team.
The midfielder put in arguably his greatest performance of the season against Manchester United, and it’s a shame that momentum has been lost for the veteran player in what has been a difficult season for the 32-year-old.
