Liverpool utterly dominated Crystal Palace this weekend. The Reds hit the Eagles for seven in their own backyard in a devastating statement display. You could pick out any of the Liverpool side for praise. Jermaine Jenas has raved over Jordan Henderson v Crystal Palace.
They all thought we’d collapse.
They thought that injuries would get the better of us.
They thought the wheels would come off.
They didn’t think we’d beat Spurs then batter Crystal Palace 7-0.

This Liverpool team are frankly ridiculous.
Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino bagged a brace whilst Sadio Mane, Takumi Minamino and Jordan Henderson grabbed a goal each against Crystal Palace.
It was a performance to tell the rest of the league that we are getting ready to run away with it again.
Jermaine Jenas on Jordan Henderson
Match of the Day was once again a Liverpool love in.
Jermaine Jenas picked out Jordan Henderson for praise after his showing against Crystal Palace. The Spurs icon told the show:
“I think there are a lot of players who can be rested but the demands and drive put on this team come from the captain.
“Today was another example of that, he drove that midfield and led by example. There is so much selfless work that he does.
“He gets into positions that allows Robertson and Alexander-Arnold to play much higher than they normally would.
“Every week we sit and give Trent the plaudits and Robertson the plaudits but the reality is that Jordan Henderson is doing a lot of their work for them.
“It’s very intelligent.”
What RTK has to say
This weekend was another perfect example of why Jordan Henderson is so indispensable.
The skipper was everywhere on the pitch, pulling the strings and demanding the best from his teammates.
He is one of the best leaders in world football, there are few more influential than him.
