In contrast, Klopp trusts TAA to be his attacking RB in a 4-3-3 and Liverpool have conceded the least goals in three of the last four seasons.
In Klopp's system Hendo covers for Trent being up field. VVD's CB partner usually has pace for balls that get past the high line (2018/19 was Gomez until he had his leg broken. From then on Matip was the main man until last season Konate stepped up for big games).
England don't play Hendo in the same role that he does and most of England's CB pairings are pretty poor at covering. Maybe part of the reason Southgate likes to play so defensively as he is afraid of being opened up.
Which is silly because England seem to be conceding at will anyway.
