Jordan Henderson's performance for Liverpool against Barcelona on Tuesday has forced several neutral fans to perform a U-turn over the Reds captain.

Henderson helped Liverpool to overcome a 3-0 first-leg defeat and progress to next month's Champions League final in Madrid 4-3 on aggregate.

 

And the 28-year-old made several significant contributions - notably forcing the Barca goalkeeper, Marc-André ter Stegen, into the save from which Divock Origi scored Liverpool's opener.

So impressive was Henderson's display that some of his detractors have since become backers.

This is the second time in as many years that Henderson has captained Jurgen Klopp's side to the Champions League final, and the England midfielder could be in possession of a Premier League winners' medal by Sunday evening.

Liverpool host Wolverhampton Wanderers in their domestic season finale, and will end their 29-year wait for the title if they win and Manchester City fail to do so at Brighton and Hove Albion.

Where does Henderson rank among Liverpool's past and present central midfielders?
