Liverpool went 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League with a 1-0 victory over basement boys Norwich City at Carrow Road.
Jurgen Klopp’s side left it late to secure all three points against a battling Canaries team. Sadio Mane’s goal in the 78th minute giving Liverpool all three points and extending their lead.
It was a welcome return to action for the Reds after their winter break and now their attention will turn towards the Champions League.
Liverpool face Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday night and the Reds will hope to put one foot in the quarter-final of the competition.
After a determined performance against a battling side yesterday, one man who came in for a tremendous amount of praise was Jordan Henderson.
The 29-year-old midfielder was once again magnificent for the Reds and he assisted Mane’s winning goal.
Henderson has played 32 times this season in all competitions and as the club’s captain, he is one of Klopp’s most instrumental players.
Liverpool’s £140,000-a-week maestro has become vitally important in Klopp’s system and after the game yesterday, supporters were quick to rave about him.
Here is a selection of tweets from Liverpool fans regarding the performance of Henderson:
Jordan Henderson is, quite simply, a wonderful footballer and a brilliant captain.

Anyone who still doesn't rate Jordan Henderson genuinely needs help.

Henderson’s been great, Van Dijk has been consistently excellent but has anyone been more clutch in the big moments than Sadio Mane this season?
Right now, he’s the best in the league. pic.twitter.com/0PJ0BcxyGu
