      Turns out I think our midfield is our strength we can play any three and they can do many different roles

      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

      Reaction from him and the crowd was superb

      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.

      He's not a leader but he leads by example. He's a very good professional! He matured in a good player.

      How did Henderson positively or negatively affect yesterday's game?

      Fair play, Jordan threw a Christmas party at Anfield for disabled and under privileged children paid for out of his own pocket.
      Well in lad.

      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.

      Same thoughts here, best of the six midfielders, from both sides, that started last night as well.

      He was good, no doubt about it in my mind.

      His reading of the game is top notch, then there's his pace, aggression, passing, leadership and organisation, not to mention his stamina.
      He was constantly chatting to his team, geeing them up, pointing where they should be, and having a shout when needed.

      A captains performance.

      Really?

      I thought Fernandinho was better than him to be honest. He did everything Henderson did and more.

      Fernandinho had an excellent game as well, but Henderson and him are in slightly different roles.

      I think of Fernandinho as a springboard, with Henderson more of a steering wheel, in the Volante mould.

      I said in the pre game thread that to win it, we had to have someone sit on Fernandinho, get right up in his face and rush him.
      Milner tried to do it, but he was bypassed too easily, and by the time the subs were made, they were sitting deeper, so it became a moot point.

      Your default Swab “they played slightly different roles” - at your age one would have thought you would act your age have the humility to admit one if not two of the opposition midfielders were better than Henderson.

      Doesn’t make you a lesser Red!

      Blimey, you just can't help being a tit, can you.

      I said Fernandinho was excellent.

      If you can't see they were playing different roles, that's entirely your problem.

      I do love the way you guys can't wait to slag off our captain just because you have a hard on for Fabinho.
      It's not a great look.

      Apart from a couple of the usual plonkers slating Henderson who should be ignored no one has slated Henderson.

      It’s the Henderson was fantastic which would make most posters eyes pop, but eh opinions.

      Following scores for Henderson against City;

      Guardian: 6
      This is anfield: 7
      Liverpool Echo: 7
      Daily Mail: 6
      Mirror: 7

      Seems he was around in the middle compared to our other players according to tabloids, the range was 2-9. One paper gave Lovren a 2. Never seen a 2 before.

      Fernandinho was invisible to me other than his fouling.

      Silva was a nuisance but nothing over the top. I’d have neither of them ahead of Gini.

      Fernandinho for all the hype about his performance, lost the ball more than any other player on the pitch. Read earlier that he lost the ball with 34% of his touches.
