Jordan Henderson proud of the fighting spirit displayed by a victorious Liverpool team on their way to the semi-final

Posted by

Jordan Henderson was a surprise start in a starting eleven that saw 10 changes from the Totenham Hostspur game, to face Leicester City.

Our captain had been struck down with a non COVID related illness, that saw him miss the previous outing and training but it wasn’t enough to stop a Carabao Cup tie.

In what appeared to be a pre-meditated substitution from Jurgen Klopp, our No.14 was removed 30 minutes remaining in place of a highly influential Naby Keita.

The Sunderland-born midfielder was still a big part in helping the youngsters through a tough start to the game and also starting a comeback,  he then took to Instagram to display his pride in the result.

The 31-year-old said: ‘We kept fighting and got our rewards! Credit to the lads, we never give up! 💪@caoimhinkelleher98 👏🙌‘.

It’s great he’s made such a quick return to action and that he looks fresh for our next trip to face Brendan Rodgers’ side, given the suspension of the Leeds United Boxing Day fixture.
