      so you didn't see Henderson play last night then. and by the way Fab was my man of the match last night.

      I did mate and I commented on how well I thought Hendo did.

      My personal preference is a midfield three of Fabinho, Gini & Keita, no disrespect to Hendo but I think that three are all playing in their best position in midfield and we have the most to gain from it.

      With Hendo in there, someone out of the the other 3 will be playing out of position and I just don't think it works unless Fabinho is holding with Gini & Keita on either side.

      When Ox is back I think he can give Keita a good run for his money in the more forward role.

      The pick of the midfield today, he really is the first name on the sheet for midfield.

      I thought he did well today.

      Little too quick to bang it out early and surrender the space but otherwise I thought he did reasonably well.

      Good stats, but not really a reflection of his talent yet.
      More to come from this lad.

      Remember posters saying he wasn’t quick enough, he certainly had a turn of pace getting back today.

      Confirming his place as first choice DM.

      I find the fact he struggled at first but then improved every time he played is a measure of the man. He must have worked so hard in training to get up to speed and to be fair he has been on it for a couple of months now. If we can get Kieta upto speed soon what a run in we are going to have.

      Game probably changed for us when he came on, his positional awareness is unbelievable.

      A bit sloppy with the ball in the first half but made sure they didn’t get a sniff.

      Eh?
      Completely standard defensive play.
      Usher the guy away from goal, try and get a nick on the ball to take it away from him.
      I'd expect any DM or defender to do exactly the same.

      He had a rough first half, constantly giving the ball away and not getting much right, and far too interested in gobbing off to the ref after getting a little shove than getting back into position.

      A better 2nd half, with Wijnaldum and Milner dropping in with him at various time, he seemed to keep it basic, just knocking the ball around, which is exactly what we needed from that position last night.

      A learning experience for him, and nice to see him keep it calm and simple 2nd half.

      Thought he had a really rough night.

      Our weakest link by far - albeit in a terrific, grafting and ultimately pretty clinical performance from a great side.

      BUT

      He never stopped trying, produced one or two moments in the second half and will be the better for it.

      He seems to have one in 4/5 games where the passing radar is way off - I wonder if it’s a fatigue thing as he adapts to a massivelymore demanding league physically.

      I like the fact that he didn't let it get to him, but I think last night we saw in 30 mins of football, all the things he needs to work on.

      Second half, he was competent, played with more composure, kept things simple, and was pretty much an extra CB a lot of the time.
      That little pocket of space, with Wijnaldum or Milner dropping in front of him worked wonders for him.

      He won't have many worse games than last night, he's too good for that, and utlimately, if he learns from it, that can only be good for him, and for the team.

      His passing was off last night esp. when he first came on, and looked tired as klopp had said.

      But he made some brilliat tackles and dug in.

      Hes been brilliant over a long period now, so the odd rough 15-20 mins is allowed.

      All these Hendonites picking on Fabinho. It's pretty hilarious how pathetic it is, Fabinho on a bad day is about Henderson's average day.

      Thought he took some time to to settle into the game when he came on, but understandable in a game of that magnitude , however, he was okay with a couple of iffy moments. Second half he was superb overall making some key tackles and blocks throughout!

      Not his best game, but still an important cog and he was still very good on the night!!

      We all see it differently PM.

      I think he’s a wonderful player - one whom I’d play more than not BUT I thought he was poor last night.

      However - it’s a Red’s classic European result so in the longer term that matters not a jot.

      72% pass completion.

      2 tackles, 1 interception, 1 clearance.

      Won 2 headers.

      2 fouls, yellow card.

      Poor.
      Anyone who thinks that was anything other than a poor game for the lad is living in cloud cuckoo land, although he improved somewhat in the 2nd half.

      However, it's not really a big deal either.
      It's football, and these guys aren't robots.
      The bottom line is that we won.
