Jordan Henderson has played as a holding midfielder for much of Jurgen Klopp’s time in charge of Liverpool – and has also slotted in there for England as well.
For a player who burst onto the scene as an all-action box-to-box midfielder, that required impressive discipline and adaptability.
But now Fabinho has come into his own at Anfield, he is the specialist holding midfielder the Reds have needed, which has freed Henderson up to play further forward.
And the former Sunderland man appears to be loving it. He has been having a huge impact on games of late and continued his impressive run in the 2-0 win over Chelsea yesterday.
Goalscorers like Sadio Mane and Mo Salah may grab the headlines but Henderson’s recent renaissance has not gone unnoticed among the Reds fans.
And they took to Twitter to hail their captain, who is now back playing in his best position and has found another gear, at just the perfect time with the title race coming to the boil now.
We’ve put together the best of the reaction to yesterday’s display by a player who has had his detractors throughout his Anfield career, but is doing a very good job of silencing them now…
Our engine, he is like a new signing to us

What a performance. Good work lads. Mane and Hendo were amazing and Salah that goal was out of this world. Phenomenal. Keep focused and we have a chance. No matter how it goes in the end this team has been amazing. Proud to be Red #YNWA 🔴🙏#LFC
