“That guy that sits in entrance of the again-4 has to have a defensive thoughts. He’s were given to suppose: ‘what if – all the time. What if we lose it? What if it gets cleared? What if our right-back’s long gone ahead?’
“Kante does that. Not most effective does he suppose that manner he’s fast over the bottom –so he’s good at it. Have Liverpool safe that again-4?
“Has Jordan Henderson were given a thoughts like Kante’s? I believe Jordan Henderson is an athlete that will get across the pitch.
