The Liverpool FC captain reflects on a disappointing result for Jurgen Klopp's side after a 1-1 draw with Leicester
Jordan Henderson admitted Liverpool FC weren’t at their best in Wednesday night’s 1-1 draw with Leicester City.
The England international was deployed in an unorthodox right-back role in Jurgen Klopp’s team for the visit of the Foxes.
Henderson was forced to play out of position with Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold still sidelined with injuries.
Even James Milner was unavailable after the former Manchester City midfielder was sent off in a 4-3 win over Crystal Palace last time out.
The Liverpool FC skipper acquitted himself well in his temporary role and won five headers in the 1-1 stalemate with Leicester.
Sadio Mane broke the deadlock in the third minute to give Liverpool FC the perfect start after Manchester City lost 2-1 to Newcastle United 24 hours earlier.
However, Leicester defender Harry Maguire equalised on the stroke of half-time to deny Liverpool FC a vital three points that would have moved the Reds seven points clear.
Henderson took to his Instagram page to reflect on a difficult night for Liverpool FC at Anfield.
Henderson wrote on the social media app: “Not our best performance but we take the point and move on! #YNWA 👊🏻”
Liverpool FC are sitting at the top of the Premier League table and five points ahead of defending champions Manchester City.
Henderson will presumably revert back to a central role for Liverpool FC’s trip to West Ham on Monday night, with Milner set to return from suspension.
