    Typical Henderson, delivering the goods as usual, I am definitely not surprised by his resurgence in an attacking role

    I wouldn’t say it was typical Henderson at all. He’s excellent of late and just miles better in this role than as a DM. Classic Henderson perhaps but typical, no.

    Sanj, MOTM? I would pick Fabinho for MoTM TBH with Firmino, Hendo, Mane and Salah all pushing him close for it.

    The thing about Hendo now is he’s now absolutely loving his football. He’s playing progressively and Fabinho is facilitating it all. The dynamics of our midfield have been changing and it starts with Fabinho, who is a truly fantastic player.

    Totally disagree Mak, that was typical Henderson for me, meaning he always does the job he is asked to do wherever he plays.

    It is now clear that he is better as an attacking midfielder, even Klopp admitted in the interview today, that he made a “mistake” in using him as a holding midfielder for too long.

    Long may it continue, I expect even more to come from Henderson.

    But one thing I agree with you, is that in Fabinho, we have now found the defensive midfielder we have been looking for since Mascherano left. And as you say, it enables all our other midfielders to shine, even Keita has come good

    Agree, Fabinho was also great & Keita too. Immense performances out there from all the Redmen, a real team performance. What a result & response to City winning their early game. Good to see Shakiri back as well. This is one exciting title race. Get in the Redmen πŸ™‚

    It’s almost like when you play him in a different midfield position he adapts.
    It’s some type of mystery.
    I’m sure Davinci will unravel this enigma what with him knowing more than Klopp and all.
    There must be some magic afoot.

    Posted this back in Dec 12th, because Dav is always going on about Kante.
    “Kante is a quality player, perhaps we’ll have a chance to see Kante and Henderson head to head again this season (last time 1-1 at the bridge, Henderson came out on top, in both tackles and passes). But until then Kante should not be on this topic.”

    I have to say I thought Henderson was better that Kante today, and Henderson is having the better season imo. His decision making and composure in the final third was spot on. Bearing in mind this is a completely different role than what he’s been doing most of the season, it is all the more impressive. Nice assist, and almost scored a goal too.
    8/10 from me

    Kenny Dalglish will be feeling better about Henderson’s upturn in form. Got to admit Hendo is looking good, all hail Jordinho!

    Hendo is getting respect from TV pundits – Klopp kinda admitted he made a mistake playing him as DM for as long as he did. Good to know we have a manager who is humble enough to listen to his players and admit he made a mistake.

    Watching the game (again) without the emotion I would say Hendo was more deserving of a 7 tbh. But I’m happy to give him an 8 for the assist (not the most difficult thing to execute but I understand that, as it’s Hendo, for some reason these regular skills (chip to the back post) are magnified).

    What seems to have been overlooked is that once again, Hendo has been ousted from his position (DM). When he first came he played more as an AM. After failing there, he was moved into more of a CM role. After failing there, he was moved to DM. Now, after Fabinho (rightly)taking the DM position off him, he has now been moved back into AM/CM.

    Personally, I hope this renaissance continues until at least the end of the season. For me, this is a rich vein of ‘form’ that Hendo is in and I truly hope that Klopp isn’t duped into thinking that he’s now a top quality AM/CM. He isn’t.

    What has been funny is reading people quoting Klopp as saying he made a mistake playing Hendo in DM the last couple of years. So when people like myself were constantly complaining about him as DM, are we now vindicated? LOL
    To be honest, it just shows how some people are devoid of independent thinking. Klopp says Hendo is great as DM – THEY say Hendo is great as DM. Klopp says he made a mistake – THEY say Hendo is better further forward. Brainless πŸ™‚

    Anyway, I really hope he keeps up the good work as it can only benefit the team. But I’m quite sure that if, going forward, Hendo is constantly played in this ‘new’ position, as time goes by and he keeps missing chances, being hesitant and/or lacking in the technique in tight situations, people opinions will change. He played this ‘new’ position for a good 4/5 years, so I really don’t know what people expect from him this time. But hey, time will tell…

    Hendo-Watch so far – 5/10, 4/10, 5/10, 6.5/10, 5.5/10, 6.5/10, 5/10, 7/10, 7/10, 6/10, 6/10, 7/10, 7/10, 6/10(RB), 8/10, 6/10, 5.5/10, 6/10, 5.5/10, 5.5/10, 5/10, 8/10, 7/10, 8/10…Peace

    Woah this is huge, in just one week Davinci has gone from saying Henderson prevents us winning trophies, to saying he hopes he continues because his form is benefiting the team, in our challenge for the CL and EPL.
