Danny Murphy has defended Jordan Henderson after an England fan criticised Gareth Southgate for continually selecting the player for his country.

Liverpool captain has led his side to both the Champions League and the Premier League title wins, while he also plays a key role in the national squad.

As there was a sense that Henderson isn’t appreciated enough, Murphy decided to speak up, claiming they need him on the pitch for England.

“Look, hold on,” he said. “First and foremost, Jordan in any England midfield is the first name on the sheet. Whatever system, as simple as that. No doubt for me.

“I watch all the England games and I am telling you what I think, not what some random guy thinks. Jordan Henderson is the best England midfielder that we have got. In terms of an all-round midfielder and being a leader.

“We need him on the pitch. In any formation. Full stop. Done!”
