Jordan Henderson’s performance for Liverpool yesterday wowed both Daniel Agger and Sami Hyypia
It was a game that will go down in Liverpool history, as they defeated rivals Manchester United for the first time.
After the game, Henderson took to Instagram to celebrate the victory and congratulate Mohamed Salah.
Robbie Fowler’s record for most Premier League goals scored by a Liverpool player was broken by the Egyptian.
It’s difficult to single out a single Liverpool player who shone out among the bunch yesterday.
Jurgen Klopp would have been overjoyed if each of his starting forwards had scored a hat trick.
Cody Gakpo’s two goals were well executed, while Darwin Nunez continues to improve game by game.
Henderson wasn’t in the spotlight for Liverpool yesterday, but both Agger and Hyypia lauded the midfielder.
The Uruguayan attacker converted the 32-year-brilliant old’s cross to make it 5-0 before being replaced by Stefan Bajcetic.
Agger and Hyypia were overjoyed with Liverpool captain Henderson.
After the game, Henderson captioned a photo of himself alongside Salah, “What a team performance it was!”
“Congratulations, King, on your new record.”
Sami Hyypia praised Liverpool and Henderson, while Daniel Agger celebrated and said, “What a game!”
Henderson has been questioned throughout the season, with most of the attention focused on Liverpool’s search for a new midfielder in the summer.
Although Jude Bellingham is the most commonly mentioned name, Henderson continues to play an important role at the club.
Jurgen Klopp picked him out for praise at full-time, dubbing him a ‘machine’.
He is Liverpool’s captain, and even if his playing time decreases in coming seasons, he remains critical to the squad’s dynamic.
Stefan Bajcetic, who succeeded him, has a bright future at the club, and Harvey Elliott impressed.
The pair could represent the future of Liverpool’s midfield, but more urgent investment appears to be required.
Whether or not that happens, Henderson will be there to work hard and motivate his teammates.
