      It's nice to see Klopp play a proper double pivot, with Fabinho holding, and Henderson pushing on, with the 2 players swapping roles at times.

      The energy he brings further up the pitch is immense, and he covers very well, acting as a screen in front of the DM and supporting the fullbacks.
      It was noticeable that our FB's didn't get forwards as much as they usually do, but I think this was tactical as wolves like to attack the flanks, so we changed things a bit and our attack focus was more central.

      My MOTM, he was excellent.

      He was outstanding last game against Wolves he really helped to keep the Tempo up. We need Jordan at his best just as we need all the other players to be at their best if we are going to beat the greatest ever Premiership side....not my words but those of the experts

      He played well, but I don't like the Hendo and Wijnaldum partnership, it's too lackluster. As soon as Fabinho came on, you could see how much better we were on the ball, but then again, the match was over by then.

      he was excellent he and Gini were like a defensive wall and yet Hendo still got forward and made some great passes.
      Yet here we are 51 points in 19 games top of the league conceded just 7 GD 36 and some people still think Jürgen cant pick the right side.

      he is only under-rated by some of his own fans he works his bollox off to fulfil the role Jürgen asks him to play he plays for the team not Jordan Henderson he has been excellent when he is fit and got a few games under his belt

      Yes is indeed the right answer.

      Annoys me when people try to talk down certain players' performances in favor of another player's performance rather than just judging the performance on its own merits. Different circumstances etc.

      I'm not his biggest fan, never was, never will be, but boy, do I admire the lad's character. Think he deserves far more credit than he is given by the vast majority of fans with regards to what he has done so far for the club.

      It really hasn't been easy for him since joining us. He has played all over the pitch, wasn't rated particularly highly by fans under King Kenny, then had that massive season in '13-'14, had to take over the captain's armband from Gerrard, has had to deal with multiple injuries, ... And he still gets out on that pitch and gives it his all for our club.

      Big example for all the young lads at the club that through sheer hard work and determination, you can get far. Lovely what he did on Christmas too, heart in the right place and exactly why so many people do value him as captain.

      Again.
      Midfield is looking like they have much more of an understanding than earlier on in the season. Gini started the season well, Milly did, as did Keita...latter a bit unfortunate with injuries of late, Fab took time to settle and Hendo was very inconsistent. It was all a bit of a jumbled mess in midfield early on but they are all clicking so much better now and complimenting each other well. Massive time of the season so couldn’t have been any better timed.
      Hopefully will be Hendo and Fab for the next 2 games, was really impressed with their pairing.

      Many see our midfield as a weakness but it is a very powerful, mobile and hard working set of players. Hendo plays his part as one such player within this squad.

      In many ways it's one of this squads strengths. I believe we have more depth in midfield than anywhere else on the pitch and any of 6 or 7 of them (if the squad is fully fit) can play and the quality remains the same.

      Ox still to come back into this set up too remember.

      Think he gave us a glimpse of why he hasn’t scored for about 3 years, has the ball from the volley come back down yet? :D

      Haha, yeah! He's been out of the game for too long! Perhaps he will improve if Klopp carries on giving him more freedom? Tbh, not too bothered about his shooting, it's what he offers off the ball that really impresses me, and last 3 games he has reminded me why I absolutely loved him.

      Henderson looking better in a more advanced role is great to see. Glad his energy is being put to good use.

      On a night when quite a few of our players were sloppy in possession, including his midfield partners,  he wasn't. Only Andy Robertson made more successful tackles, played a great through ball, hit a few decent long backs, covered the back line well and was part of a midfield that made David Silva have the quietest game I've ever seen him have.  Think he even made a clearance as well.

      In a high quality game - he was excellent.

      Only behind Robbo and (at a push) VVD on the night for me.

      Was he excellent?

      He played virtually the same role as Fernandinho who single handily destroyed our midfield - ok maybe a bit of a over exaggeration.

      Two midfielders who were excellent last night were Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho.
