Liverpool’s top personalities look to be showing signs of impatience as club captain Jordan Henderson made his displeasure with goalkeeper Alisson crystal obvious in full view of everyone in Tuesday evening’s game versus Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The flashpoint occurred in the middle of the second half of the Reds’ journey to Stamford Bridge to play a faltering Chelsea team.

Henderson appeared to be furious with his teammate for failing to communicate with fellow Liverpool player Fabinho, which nearly cost Jurgen Klopp’s squad dearly.

The Reds captain has never been one to shy away from telling his teammates exactly what he thinks, and Tuesday was no exception as he screamed at an equally irritated Alisson.

Liverpool Clash: ‘You Can See The Frustration There’


While covering the incident live on English sports radio outlet talkSPORT, former England international Stuart Pearce claimed the flashpoint occurred from the Reds big loss to Man City last weekend.

“It stems from Saturday, you can see the frustration there,” Pearce claimed.

Henderson and Alisson exited the Stamford Bridge field arm-in-arm, conversing, at the conclusion of the game, indicating that they were able to forgive and forget.

Henderson and company’s performance was especially lackluster. Liverpool can consider themselves fortunate to have escaped with a draw, as Chelsea squandered numerous golden opportunities throughout.

Before kickoff, Klopp made six substitutions to the lineup that began Saturday’s 4-1 defeat at the Etihad against Manchester City.

Jamie Carragher, a legend of the Reds, appeared to believe that this signified a larger problem currently plaguing his former team.

Carragher’s Take on the Liverpool Situation


Speaking ahead of kick-off, the ex-Liverpool ace told Sky Sports: “No it’s more than you do expect and what Jurgen Klopp’s done since he came in is there’s certain players who just play every game, you know, and those players, some of them aren’t playing tonight.

“You look at the back four, Virgil van Dijk, that’s down to illness we’re told but Trent Alexander-Arnold you’re always expecting to be on that team sheet,” he said.

“Mo Salah being another one, Andy Robertson being another one,” he added.

“He hasn’t just changed the team, he’s changed mainstays really who are there week-in week-out – not just this season but for years gone by,” the former Reds star suggested.

Henderson and Alisson were two of the team’s constants, although it is unclear how Klopp felt about the duo’s constant shouting in each other’s faces.

Next up for the Reds is a matchup with the league’s frontrunners, as Liverpool welcomes high-flying Arsenal to Anfield on Sunday.

When Mikel Arteta’s squad rolls into town looking for a first league victory in the Red half of Merseyside for the first time in 11 years, and Klopp will definitely be hoping his players avoid any further on-field meltdowns.

If the Reds can get their act together and put in a performance versus the league leaders, there is no reason to indicate that they will not compete in the game.

A win for the side would go a long way in terms of momentum and confidence, knowing that they competed with Arsenal and put a dent in the Gunners league ambitions.
