Liverpool endured a frustrating evening on Tuesday as they could only secure a 0-0 draw against Bayern Munich at Anfield in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie.
The Reds created plenty of chances and were far more aggressive than the reigning German champions. However, a lack of quality in the final third meant that Jurgen Klopp’s side failed to take advantage of their superiority.

Whilst more may have been expected of Liverpool’s attackers, the home side’s midfield contingent deserves plenty of credit. The Reds won the battle in the middle of park and Liverpool’s captain Jordan Henderson, in particular, produced an outstanding display.
The 28-year-old defended aggressively and assertively, stamping his authority on the match from the off. On the ball the 48-cap England international was adventurous and progressive, crafting a number of openings that his teammates failed to capitalise upon.
After the match, despite the disappointing result, plenty of Liverpool fans took to Twitter to praise Henderson’s showing, with some even going so far as to compare him with club legend Steven Gerrard…
Better than Jorginho

Sadly there are lots of Liverpool “fans” who can’t or won’t see how valuable he is.

Average in the league, but at Anfield in the Champions League any team would want him

Agreed, he’s been everywhere. Breaking down play and decent passes. Really good captains performance tonight.

Very poor in the final three. Henderson and Fabinho were brilliant. A lot of missed chances tonight – big game Sunday now

Best midfield performance I’ve seen in a while since a certain No.8 left us for LA. Henderson
