"They are playing in a different way. The team is solid, three players in midfield, all of them positional. Henderson likes to go forward and come back and go and come back all the time and there is more freedom for the two guys on the side - either Sterling or Coutinho or whoever they play on the side, so I think Brendan was intelligent in the way he adapted the team without Steven Gerrard."
