​Liverpool boss Klopp wrapped with 'on fire' Henderson

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is delighted with the recent showings of captain Jordan Henderson.

Since switching to a more attacking, box-to-box midfield role, the England man has been one of his team's star performers.

He provided the assist for Sadio Mane's opener in a 2-0 league win over Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday. And Klopp could not be happier!

"I've said it since the first day I arrived and my opinion hasn't changed: he's a fantastic skipper for this team," Klopp told Sky Sports.

"On and off the pitch, he's fantastic.

"He's played so many positions - which I forced him to do - and he was still very, very important. There was not one part of him that was not important.

"In the last three games he's obviously on fire, which is good."
