Liverpool supporters on Twitter hailed the performance of Jordan Henderson after his wonder striker helped the Reds beat Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Friday night.

Dejan Lovren gave Jurgen Klopp’s side the lead early on in the first-half, before skipper Henderson unleashed a powerful, curling shot from 25 yards to put the Merseysiders 2-0 up before half-time.

Despite Diego Costa pulling one back for the hosts on the hour mark, Liverpool supporters hailed midfielder Henderson for putting in a captain’s performance at Stamford Bridge as they deservedly took all three points.

Many Reds supporters lauded Henderson’s strike for being goal of the month, or even the best goal of the season thus far.

Additionally, others felt that the 26-year-old answered his critics by putting in a man-of-the-match performance to help lift his side into the top four.

Meanwhile another Liverpool fan highly praised the England midfielder by claiming Henderson is the best central defensive midfielder in the country following his performances for Klopp’s side this season.

The win puts the Reds into the top four with ten points, two points off leaders Manchester City, with the rest of the Premier League set to play their fixtures this weekend.

Here is a selection of Liverpool supporters on Twitter reacting to Henderson’s performance:
