Liverpool fans have lost their minds on Twitter after being shocked by the performance of Jordan Henderson against Manchester City at Anfield on Wednesday night.

Henderson, 27, put in a marvelous shift as the Reds put one foot in the Champions League semi-final with a 3-0 first-leg win over the Citizens after running riot in the first-half.

Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane were all on target within the first 31 minutes to take a commanding lead against Pep Guardiola’s shell-shocked men.

After the break the away side started to gain more control, but Liverpool put in a brilliant defensive performance to ensure that Man City would not find what could have been a pivotal away goal.

Henderson was one of many players to earn a lot of praise after the game, however many were stunned by how much the England international had stepped up after being arguably Liverpool’s most underwhelming player this season.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Henderson picked up a booking in the latter stages of the game for a cynical foul on Raheem Sterling.

The 27-year-old will miss the second-leg at the Etihad due to his yellow card which will no doubt leave Jurgen Klopp with a problem due to several injuries also plaguing his squad.
