The Reds simply didn’t used to win matches like this. Despite not being at their best at any point, Henderson’s fortunate ricochet effort after 67 minutes earned Brendan Rodgers side an enormous three points.

For so long it looked as though Liverpool weren’t going to break the deadlock, and if anything it was Garry Monk’s side who deserved the lead at half-time.

After the break the visitors improved greatly though, dictating the game and creating chances. That Henderson goal could prove to be one of Liverpool’s most important of the season, and it was nice to see a moment of real luck for once.

Simon Mignolet excelled in goal once again, making two terrific first-half stops, while Joe Allen was again a hugely impressive figure at the heart of midfield. Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho were terrific too.

The win leaves Rodgers’ men just two points behind Manchester United heading into the vital clash with Louis van Gaal’s side at Anfield on Sunday. Victory in that really would put the Reds in pole position to finish in the top four.

Here’s how fans and journalists reacted the game on social media, both during and after the game:

‘Zinedine Biscan’ on the forums:

Massive win. Goal was lucky but we deserved something from a good second half. Win our next game and we go fourth.

‘ILLOK’ on the forums:

Mignolet, Allen, Skrtel and Sakho were very good. Gerrard very good off the bench too. The rest were poor. Sterling and Lallana so disappointing, Henderson was brutal. Sturridge improved in the second, Coutinho not quite in it enough.

Job done. Difficult to pick out any one individual as our stand out player. Six away games without conceding. Who’d have thought we’d have that record back in the autumn? Will have to do better against Utd though.
