Liverpool conceded in stoppage time to draw 1-1 away to Brighton on Saturday afternoon – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter did find a positive from the performance of captain Jordan Henderson.
It was a frantic Premier League fixture that saw the Reds have two goals chalked off for offside and lose James Milner to injury, plus Brighton’s Neal Maupay missed a penalty in the first-half.
The Merseyside club took the lead on the hour mark when Diogo Jota scored superbly after a run into the box, but Pascal Gross equalised in the 93rd minute for hosts Brighton to earn them a point.
Liverpool returned to the top of the league table, but they are just a point above second-placed Tottenham.
A selection of Liverpool supporters on social media felt that club captain Henderson made a big difference with his display and highlighted how influential he is at Anfield.
The £20million midfielder (BBC) entered the action at half-time to help his team get a grip on the game after they had struggled in the first period and it was obvious how much of a leader he is to help others around him.
There were many that doubted him in his opening years at the club, but the 30-year-old is pivotal to Jurgen Klopp’s side and they’ll be delighted to have him back from injury.
Here are some Reds fans discussing Henderson:

Imagine still having the narrative that Henderson brings nothing to this LFC team and he’s just a water carrier.
