Liverpool were at their free-flowing best on Saturday as they overcame Brighton and Hove Albion 5-1 at the Amex Stadium, but not all the Reds' players left the field with the praise of their fans ringing in their ears.

Liverpool's victory came courtesy of a Roberto Firmino brace, goals from Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho and an own-goal from Lewis Dunk, with Brighton's consolation scored by Glenn Murray from the penalty spot. However Jordan Henderson was nowhere near his best in the centre of the park, leaving some Reds supporters to wonder if he is coming to the end of his time as a regular Anfield starter.

At just 27, the Liverpool skipper will feel he still has plenty to offer and no doubt intends to stick around for years to come. Yet for that to happen he will need to play far better than he has managed this season.

After a 5-1 victory away from home, fans should be praising every player on the pitch, not picking holes in one who should know better, and it is telling that the criticism remains despite the healthy score-line.

Henderson has racked up 259 appearances for Liverpool and if he wants to become an all-time great at the club, he needs to up his game considerably.
