Some Liverpool fans are fuming at the performance of captain Jordan Henderson, who was hooked after 61 minutes in the clash against Red Bull Salzburg.
The Austrian Bundesliga outfit tried to replicate the miracle of Istanbul at Anfield on Wednesday evening, coming back from three goals down in remarkable fashion.
Although Mohamed Salah eventually crushed the visitors’ hopes and dreams with a cool finish to make the final score 4-3, Reds fans are not best pleased with some of their players.
Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum in particular struggled, amassing WhoScored ratings of just 6.14 and 6.62 respectively.
Both players were withdrawn around the hour mark, and this is now the second time in as many games Jurgen Klopp has dragged his skipper off with the Reds not looking their best.
The 29 year-old managed no shots, key passes, dribbles, tackles, interceptions or clearances in the match, per WhoScored, and some fans are crucifying his display.

Henderson shouldn’t play against teams who press, the donkey in him gets badly exposed

Hendo is offering nothing offensively or defensively. Like seriously I think it’s high time Klopp dropped him Henderson from first XI.

Him and Henderson are atrocious. Our central midfielders are midtable quality
