You couldn’t blame Liverpool fans for fearing the worst heading into their clash against Huddersfield.

In the absence of Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana, Jurgen Klopp’s side were without three very influential attacking players.

And after last weekend’s 4-1 thrashing by Spurs, the Reds found themselves in ninth place - just one point ahead of Saturday’s opponents.

And it looked as though it might be another frustrating match for the Merseysiders after a goalless first-half that included a missed Mohamed Salah penalty.

The longer the match went on, the more confident David Wagner’s side would have been of emulating their win against Manchester United seven days previously.

But the match changed in the 50th minute.

Alberto Moreno’s forward pass was inadvertently deflected into the path of Daniel Sturridge who made no mistake.

It was Sturridge’s 100th career goal and it gave Liverpool the impetus and confidence to go on and win the game convincingly.

Further goals from Roberto Firmino and Gigi Wijnaldum earned Liverpool a 3-0 win and a much-needed three points.

But before that Sturridge goal, Anfield was full of anxiety.

While they needed plenty of luck for the ball to fall to Sturridge, some Liverpool fans have noticed the role captain Jordan Henderson played in the opener.

Henderson’s influence is often criticised by Liverpool fans but he showed exactly why he’s skipper.

With Liverpool’s defenders in possession, Firmino dropped deep looking for the ball to feet. However, Henderson wasn’t happy with the Brazilian coming into the midfield and told him to go away.

And it was Firmino’s run that caused the confusion in the Huddersfield that allowed Sturridge to open the scoring.

And here is the reaction from the Liverpool fans:

He may not have touched the ball, but Henderson deserves a lot of credit in the build-up to Liverpool’s first goal.
