Liverpool fans have heaped praise on captain Jordan Henderson after his equaliser against Tottenham sparked a second-half comeback to win 2-1 against the north London side.
Henderson, 29, scored eight minutes into the second half which was later followed by a Mohamed Salah penalty to seal all three points and maintain their lead at the top of the Premier League.
The England international found himself to be at fault for the visitors’ opener after losing possession on the halfway line, but his goal instantly made up for his first-half lapse.
It’ll go against a lot of people’s agenda, but Henderson was superb that second half.

As Henderson is effectively Liverpool’s ‘marmite’ player, supporters were quick to praise him for his second-half performance.
Here you will find some of the best responses from Liverpool fans:
We’d lose more games without him. The reason why Klopp plays him. Football is not just skills, assists & goals.

He was excellent and should have had a foul when he was clearly taken out. Result though is so important because they were out to spoil and foul and do whatever it took today Spurs. We found a way and Mane was outstanding.

Thought he had a good 90 minutes. Certainly much better than last week.
