Liverpool have had an inconsistent start to the season and following their 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest, Paul Scholes has questioned some of Jurgen Klopp’s decisions.

Klopp’s side currently find themselves seventh in the Premier League, 11 points behind Arsenal.

The defeat against Forest now means that Liverpool have dropped points in seven of their 11 Premier League matches so far this season.

Scholes has called into question the treatment of captain Jordan Henderson and has hinted at something being off with the Liverpool skipper.

He told Premier League Productions: “He has Jordan Henderson on the bench, he should be playing.

“He is the leader of the team. He’s the captain and the one, the Casemiro type of role, and he gets everyone ticking around.

“He seems to have fallen out with him or carrying an injury. There is something not quite right there.”

Henderson was brought on as a second half substitute at the weekend, but struggled to impact the match.

The Liverpool skipper has started in seven of Liverpool’s 11 Premier League fixtures this season.

As a result of Klopp tinkering with Liverpool’s formation, Henderson has had to step aside on a few occasions lately.

There have been some suggestions that Liverpool are a better team without Henderson starting, but Scholes doesn’t share the same view.

Liverpool had 15 shots against Forest and the vast majority of the possession, but they struggled to make their chances count.

After the match, Klopp cut a frustrated figure as his side lost more ground on the teams above them.

“The goal we conceded was a big mistake from us. We lose the ball and give them the free-kick and this can happen around set pieces. Apart from that, all the chances they had we gave them.

“We had to make really late changes and in general a lot of changes and it’s a game you have to win doing the right stuff again and again and again and we didn’t. That’s why we stand here and have lost the game.”

Next up for Liverpool is a trip to the Johan Cruijff ArenA to face Ajax in the Champions League.

Klopp’s side are back in Premier League action next week as they host Leeds at Anfield.
