Liverpool fans drooled over the performance of Jordan Henderson after his side’s 2-1 victory against Monterrey in Qatar.
The result meant that the reigning European champions advanced to the final of the Club World Cup and will face Brazilian side Flamengo, who won the Copa Libertadores in the most dramatic of circumstances in November.
Goals from Naby Keita and a 91st-minute winner from substitute Roberto Firmino ensured that Jurgen Klopp’s side marched on to the grand finale of the intercontinental tournament.
The German tactician made many changes to his team but with the absence of Virgil van Dijk due to illness, captain Jordan Henderson started alongside Joe Gomez at centre half.
Supporters were full of praise for the captain and made their feelings clear towards him on social media. One fan said that he “runs through brick walls” for the team, while another said that he was a “professional of the highest order”.
Here you will find some of the best comments from Liverpool fans:
Gotta feel for the guy. Runs through brick walls for the team, doing whatever the team needs from him… class player and captain!

He fills in at CB, which he has never played before, in a crucial game and delivers a top class performance.
Everyone is quick to give him criticism when he underperforms, so give him credit when he puts in a great display.
