‘Turned The Tide In Our Favour’ ‘Absolute Monster Half Hour’ – Liverpool Fans Praise Star’s Impact Versus Southampton

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson provided an assist and scored a goal as the Reds came out 3-1 winners against Southampton on Friday night.

The 28-year-old’s experience, energy and drive proved crucial as Jurgen Klopp’s men grabbed the three points.

Supporters on Twitter were praising Henderson’s impact on the game:

The Reds had been struggling in the middle of the park with Naby Keita and Georginio Wijnaldum unable to provide cover as the Saints continually caught Liverpool on the counter-attack

Henderson’s introduction after 59 minutes, along with James Milner, helped to steady the ship, allowing the Reds to gain a foothold and apply constant pressure to their opponents.

The midfielder played a vital role in both goals scored in the second half, heading the ball into the path of Mo Salah who ran the length of the field to score a brilliant goal.

Henderson then sealed the win himself, arriving late in the box to calmly slot home from a perfectly executed cross from Roberto Firmino.
