Two Liverpool players are one yellow card away from missing the second leg against Manchester City.
Alberto Moreno (who’s not going to start anyway due to Andrew Robertson’s brilliance) and captain Jordan Henderson.
Unfortunately the skipper, who will undeniably be involved in lots of tackles and interceptions tonight, will be walking a tightrope at Anfield this evening.
With Emre Can currently injured, this is very annoying, as we have no other options for holding midfield with the second leg to be played next week.
Manchester City also have Fernandinho one booking away, along with his understudy Ilkay Gundogan, but Reds have expressed worry about Henderson on Twitter.
In all reality, this is the kind of match Hendo could very likely pick up a yellow. He’ll also be very important at the Etihad, regardless of Can’s fitness, but we probably shouldn’t look too far ahead.
If we were offered a win tonight with a yellow for the Englishman, we’d take it!
Another yellow card for Henderson tomorrow and he is out for second leg. Can't afford to lose him at the moment.

Anybody who wants Henderson to get a yellow card, just so he misses the second leg vs City is f***ing stupid. I don’t care how big your agenda is against him, it’s weird. Support the team.

Emre Can is set to miss the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals, meaning Henderson is likely to start. However, he must escape a yellow card tomorrow night otherwise he will be suspended for the second leg. #LFC pic.twitter.com/RFx1j3PULd
