‘Covered Every Blade Of Grass’ ‘Phenomenal’ – Fans On Twitter Praise Liverpool Star For Display In Bayern Stalemate

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson put in a captain’s display against Bayern Munich last night.

The 28-year-old made sure that the Bundesliga side were restricted to very few chances during the game, helping to protect the makeshift centre-back partnership of Fabinho and Joel Matip.

Manager Jurgen Klopp praised Henderson after the match for his excellent performance:

“Hendo did a brilliant job there, it was unbelievable how many balls he won back and stuff like that. It was a fantastic game from him – but that’s actually what we expect as well.”

Fans on Twitter were mostly in agreement with the manager’s assessment of the Liverpool captain:

While Henderson may have shined last night, the Reds would have been disappointed by their wastefulness in front of goal. They lacked a cutting edge in the final third but they will have been happy to keep a clean sheet heading to Germany.

The fact that Bayern had their first shut out of 2019 demonstrates Liverpool’s bluntness in attack and they will be hoping for an improved performance in front of goal when they face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
