Liverpool fans on Twitter have urged Jurgen Klopp to axe Jordan Henderson for Wednesday night’s Champions League clash against Sevilla.

Skipper Henderson played the full 90 minutes of the team’s 5-0 hammering at Manchester City as they were torn apart following the first half sending-off of Sadio Mane.

It was the first league defeat of the season for Klopp’s side and Mane’s dismissal clearly was the key event of the match as the 10-men visitors could not cope with a vibrant City, for whom Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane each scored twice after Sergio Aguero had opened the scoring.

Henderson is a mainstay of the Liverpool team and widely considered a favourite of the manager, as he is the captain and a nailed-on starter when fit and available for selection.

Supporters are not convinced his performances are worthy of such exalted status.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Liverpool are next in action on Wednesday when their Champions League campaign begins with a home clash against Spanish big hitters.
