Ideally I'd like a playmaking/defensive hybird in that position but maybe that isn't what Klopp is looking for in which case Hendo is fulfilling the role well enough.
"We win in spite of Henderson"
Henderson gets injured and we haven't won since. That's a happy coincidence.
Not sure it's even worth discussing anymore. He's been integral to everything good we do.
We missed him but nowhere near as much as Mane tonight. (Point in case: Burnley)
Anyone who dares tell me that Can is better than him is a moron.
Southampton broke on us quite a few times today and they ran straight through the middle of our team.
Henderson has stopped those counters countless times this season and we miss his ability to get about the pitch for sure. Whilst he is guilty of playing it too safe at times, Jordan is always looking to move the ball quickly too. His ability to switch play (accurately) with a long diagonal is something we've also lost from the team. The amount of tackles we lost today was ridiculous and at times our players weren't even in a position to make them.
I think we also learned that Lucas and Can are far too slow to play in a midfield together.
Henderson and Matip are big players and the real leaders in our team. Losing Mane is huge too of course, as we've lost that pace up top.
I think he is missed. Not necessarily from a creative side, but certainly from an energy side.
At the start of the season he seemed to be refraining from attempting them, which I think he was instructed to do.
Is he back for utd?
Can we just accept we really miss him? We've looked lost in midfield since losing him.
Badly missed. The energy and running has been completely ripped out of the side.
We miss you DOK!!

I never thought i'd say this but Hendo has made a massive improvement this season he seems to be that anchor in the midfield defensively and attacking and you can see we are a bit lost without him, just my opinion though , we are missing mane and matip as well which weakens our defensive and attacking capabilities.
I'd love Hendo to be back but we've never lost a game with Mane on the pitch. He came off vs Bournemouth at 3-1 and we saw what happened. He's been our most important player.
Yep we are missing Henderson, minority of bitter posters aside, he's clearly a miss to the team.
I'm also a little worried about Can at the moment, playing really quite poorly, hoping he can find form soon
Since Henderson has joined Liverpool, our win ratio drastically dips when he isn't in the team. You can put that down to coincidence, but it is what it is.
