Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp told to sell ‘big time fraud’ Jordan Henderson after Reds midfielder’s poor performance vs Chelsea
The Reds captain struggled at Stamford Bridge until he was withdrawn with just over 10 minutes to go
Jordan Henderson’s performance in Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea had Liverpool fans pulling their hair out as Saturday passed from day to night.
Daniel Sturridge netted a late, late equaliser to secure a share of the spoils at Stamford Bridge after Eden Hazard had put the Blues ahead.
Henderson started the match as part of Liverpool’s midfield three, returning to the line-up having been named among the substitutes for Wednesday’s Carabao Cup defeat to Chelsea.
The Reds captain, however, was somewhat shocking in the autumn dusk.
He stayed on the pitch for 78 minutes but never really got into the game, and Henderson’s passing had fans thoroughly annoyed.
His desire to recycle possession can be, at times, very useful, but Henderson had opportunities to launch attacks and he STILL turned to face his own goal and played the ball back to his defenders.
The England international was a clear level below Chelsea’s midfield of Jorginho, N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic, and it was amazing he lasted as long as he did before being withdrawn by Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool supporters during and after the match could not believe how poor Henderson was in west London, and fans took to social media to call for his sale as soon as possible.
