Liverpool consolidated their top four credentials in the English Premier League on Saturday with a convincing 2-0 win over Newcastle United at Anfield.
Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane were at the heart of the action as you’d expect, scoring in each half to secure a comfortable three points that seen the Reds move up to second place in the table ahead of the rest of the weekend’s football.
While those attacking talents will steal the headlines, Liverpool fans have been paying tribute to captain Jordan Henderson who returned to the starting eleven after missing recent games due to injury.
The England international was in exceptional form in the midfield alongside Oxlade-Chamberlain, with the duo providing the platform on which their more creative teammates could shine.
Sometimes criticised by supporters, he’s looking very comfortable in the Reds starting eleven right now and fans now recognise his important to Jurgen Klopp’s side.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his role in the team after Saturday’s win…
Liverpool were majestic today. Didn’t get out of 2nd gear.

I thought Henderson was excellent today for #LFC. Broke up play well defensively, always showed for the ball & was also very good at dictating tempo going forward with some quick turns & passes. Very good to see – he adds balance when at his best
