Jordan Henderson gets slammed by fans everywhere, including many of his own, but last night, he completely dominated Daniele de Rossi and Radja Nainggolan.
The skipper covered an insane amount of ground, won tackles, interceptions and started counter-attacks, all while leading his troops into battle with calmness and composure.
What more can you ask for from your captain?
Jurgen Klopp thinks he’s exceptional and we agree. Anyone who doesn’t is watching us play with a preconceived opinion.
Thankfully, the Englishman got the credit he deserved following the 5-2 AS Roma win with many declaring it was his best ever performance in red.
With Emre Can, Adam Lallana and now Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain injured, it’s vital that he maintains this level of performance until the summer.
Haven't seen a word of praise for him but Henderson was magnificent tonight.

Today was Jordan Henderson's best performance probably ever, leave alone in a Red shirt.
If you end up bossing De Rossi the entire game so much so that he is taken off, you know you had a good day.

Jordan Henderson deserved fans singing about him tonight. He’s our captain and was sheer class.

"I believe this Liverpool team are stronger with him in it…"
"If he delivers this Champions League he'll be a legend here forever."

Jordan Henderson has rarely played better than against Roma. Up against some serious class in particularly Nainggolan (Roma's best player) and De Rossi and loved the challenge. And he dominated Strootman. Henderson turning into a real leader on and off the pitch. #lfc

Last night was the best I have ever seen Jordan Henderson play, unreal performance.

Not intending this as a dig, rather praise; tonight was the first time I genuinely was amazed by Henderson as LFC captain. Fired on his men with passion and lead by example. A stand out incident when he let Lovren know big time that his defending didn’t cut it after the 5-1 goal

Back to the footy. How good were we for that hour by the way, we were unplayable. Got to give Henderson a mention. He was outstanding tonight. As good a captains performance as you’ll see.
