The resident Kopites in the Transfer Tavern are feeling confident ahead of their huge clash with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium this evening.
The Premier League have thrown up a real Friday night treat to kick-off the festive season of football, with a pivotal fixture in the race for a top-four finish this season. If recent history is anything to go by then the onlooking spectators will surely bear witness to a cracking evening of footballing entertainment, as the last 4 fixtures between the two sides have produced a whopping 21 goals.
Liverpool have won their last 3 fixtures against The Gunners and are undefeated in 5, so they will fancy their chances of extending their recent run of form later this evening.
Ahead of the eagerly anticipated clash, the Liverpool fans on Twitter have been trying to predict their starting line-up, and they have voiced their opinions on who Jurgen Klopp should select from the outset.
Perhaps to the surprise of some, plenty of supporters have called for Klopp to drop their captain Jordan Henderson who has been struggling to impress the Reds faithful of late.
And judging by the reaction on Twitter, it appears the supporters would prefer to see Klopp include both Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane at Henderson’s expense.
However, there would be no better way for Henderson to win over the sceptical supporters with a captain’s performance and goal to match this evening.
Here’s what the supporters had to say about Henderson on Twitter…
Drop Henderson, play both.

They can buy someone better from next week. He may be the best they have now, but he’s not a long-term solution.
