Liverpool and Everton will both enter Sunday’s Merseyside derby high on confidence.

The Reds are unbeaten in the Premier League and will not want their first defeat to come at the hands of Everton.

But Marco Silva’s side won’t be pushovers. They’ve collected 16 points out of 21 and are up to sixth in the table.

Jurgen Klopp will be unable to rely upon Jordan Henderson for the game following the midfielder’s sending off against Watford.

Many Liverpool fans aren’t concerned by Henderson’s absence. In fact, some are even happy about it.

Henderson divides opinion among Liverpool supporters; he’s had his critics ever since his arrival at the club in 2011.

And Klopp has handed more minutes to Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner this season, anyway.

Everton fan shut down after Henderson tweet

It’s prompted Everton fans to joke that they would rather Henderson play at Anfield on Sunday.

One, who goes by @TheKendallEnd on Twitter, posted a message that read: “Henderson banned from Merseyside Derby. Everton announce they intend to appeal.”

Tongue-in-cheek stuff. Yet it didn’t go down well with a fellow Everton fan.

@MrMarcoSilva responded by saying: “Henderson has won more Merseyside Derbies than any living Everton player, past or present.”

What a stat. And it’s pretty incredible that it’s been pointed out by an Everton supporter.

In total, Henderson was won five Merseyside derbies during his time at Liverpool.

And while he has his critics, he’s played a part in Liverpool’s journey to becoming Premier League title contenders under Klopp.

The Liverpool boss refused to criticise Henderson for his sending off, admitting that he was planning to replace the 28-year-old with Fabinho.

“You play in a defensive-midfield situation and I don't know how many challenges Hendo had or situations where he had to be closing the player or space,” Klopp said.

“Twice, he was there with a hand. He made a tactical foul. With the second one, I didn't like too much because we wanted to change in that situation.

“Fabinho was ready and then he got it. Things like this happen. It's nothing serious.”
