‘Ruins every attack’: Liverpool star singled out for criticism after poor first half vs Brentford
Brentford vs Liverpool
Brentford and Liverpool are currently locked in Premier League action.
After Manchester City saw off Chelsea on Saturday, the tie is a must-win for Liverpool, who now sit 14 points behind the league leaders.
Should Liverpool lose, even with their game in hand, it seems unlikely that Jurgen Klopp’s side would be able to catch Pep Guardiola and co. As a result, a win does look to be needed.
Jordan Henderson targeted
So far though, despite Brentford being in pretty patchy form and conceding a decent amount of goals this term, Liverpool have been unable to break the deadlock with 45 minutes played.
Part of the reason for this has been their poor display in midfield, with Jordan Henderson, in particular, looking some way from his best.
Henderson has so far misplaced several passes, failed with a number of crosses and generally looks off the pace.
As a result, the Englishman has come in for heavy criticism online, with just some of the reaction to Henderson’s first-half display shown below:
