Klopp: Henderson is a fantastic skipper.

The Liverpool captain assisted Mane's opener against Liverpool with a chip towards the back post.

Jurgen Klopp praised Jordan Henderson's display and leadership in Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday.

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah found the net in the space of three second-half minutes to send the Reds back to the top of the Premier League table. 

The Liverpool captain was really impressive on the day as his cross led to Mane's headed opener shortly after half-time before Mo Salah wrapped up the win with a stunning strike two minutes later. 

The 28-year-old has thrived in a box-to-box role in recent weeks and Klopp has been happy with him, saying he is a “fantastic skipper”.

"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."
