Reds boss Jurgen Klopp was very impressed with the performance from Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson against Wolverhampton Wanderers last night.

Liverpool claimed a 2-1 victory at the Molineux Stadium thanks to goals from Roberto Firmino and Henderson.

The Reds now possess a 16-point lead at the top of the Premier League table with a game in hand. One of the key figures in Liverpool’s magnificent 2019-20 campaign has been the captain.

Henderson has had a really solid season, and he continued in that fashion against Wolves last night scoring and registering an assist.

“His goal was incredible and that is just another side of his outstanding shape at the moment. He played an unbelievable game again,” said Klopp, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

“He was really shouting at everyone, keeping them on their toes, but it’s not about the shouting it’s about what you say.

“He only asks for things he expects from himself as well. We couldn’t be in the situation we are without these kinds of characters.”

Klopp is spot on in regards to his captain. Henderson has copped some serious criticism from certain Liverpool supporters in his time at the club, but he has certainly had the last laugh.

The captain has lifted the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup within the past six months.

He could become the first Liverpool captain to lift the Premier League trophy, which would be some achievement. Considering how good Liverpool’s form has been this season, it looks very likely Henderson will add to his trophy collection come May.
