Jordan Henderson impresses for Liverpool

The first half finished 0-0 with Liverpool having the better of the chances.

Liverpool’s best chance fell to Sadio Mane and the winger really should have done better.

Despite it remaining 0-0, one Liverpool player put on a stand out performance for much of the evening.

Jordan Henderson was arguably one of Liverpool’s best players vs Munich.

The Englishman played a superb ball to Mohamed Salah who was unable to convert.

Henderson also did a fantastic job defensively and his passing was top quality.
