The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are still getting over yesterday’s incredible 3-0 home win over Manchester City in the latest fantastic European night at Anfield. Henderson, whilst speaking in an interview for the Liverpool website, spoke about the fantastic atmosphere for the game and the challenges the club face in the second leg on Tuesday in Manchester.

Henderson received a booking for a challenge on Raheem Sterling in the second half, meaning he’ll miss the second leg of the tie at The Etihad on Tuesday. Liverpool fans will be confident they can ride their momentum and avoid a four-goal defeat without their captain on Tuesday as they look to progress to the last four of the Champions League for the first time since the 2007/08 season when they were knocked out by Chelsea in the last four.
If Liverpool can edge past Pep Guardiola’s footballing juggernaut next week, the fans will really start to believe that they can regain the famous trophy that was last at Anfield in 2005 after that famous night in Istanbul. The Reds propping our bar up had been nervously waiting for the City game, but after three goals in 19 minutes spun the tie in Liverpool’s favour, the second leg can’t come round quickly enough for those associated with Anfield.

Most amazing part of the game is… For a team of ManCity quality had "0" Shots on target .. Wow quite a defending.
Now people doesn't want to talk about 75 mil VVD.

Jordan Henderson was awesome as a midfield general and so were the back four solid hard tackling….
To not concede against this free scoring Man City team was the perfect Icing on the Cake….
