Liverpool stars Jordan Henderson and Alisson Becker were caught arguing furiously during their side’s 0-0 Premier League draw with Chelsea on Tuesday

The Daily Mail reported that the two players confronted one another after the Blues came close to scoring their first goal, though it is unclear when exactly the incident occurred. A miscommunication among Alisson and midfielder Fabinho prompted an opportunity, yet Chelsea neglected to change over it.

Henderson was seen speaking with Alisson after the error. His words didn’t appear to go down excessively well with the Liverpool No. 1, who in turn responded. The team then settled in the punishment region before focus back Joel Matip stepped in to stop the showdown.

Stuart Pearce, who was covering the game for talkSPORT, was a former manager of Manchester City. He seemed to think that the incident had something to do with what happened over the weekend. In the league, the Reds lost to City 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium after taking an early lead on April 1.

According to the aforementioned Daily Mail report, Pearce stated:

“It stems from Saturday; you can see the frustration there, and you’re looking at such a poor miss [from Chelsea forward Joao Felix] this time.”

Henderson and Alisson have eminently persevered through differentiating seasons for Liverpool. The previous has over and over been condemned for his powerlessness to stir a striving Reds midfield. In 33 competition matches, he has provided two assists.

Alisson, on the other hand, has unquestionably been the team’s best player this season. In 38 games across all competitions, the Brazilian has only kept 14 clean sheets and conceded 49 goals. However, Jurgen Klopp’s team would probably be in much worse shape without his outstanding performance in goal.

Despite Jordan Henderson and Alisson Becker’s good performances, Liverpool and Chelsea shared a draw.

Both Liverpool and Chelsea required a success when they conflicted horns at Stamford Extension on Tuesday. However, the 0-0 draw keeps them both outside the hunt for a Premier League finish in the top four this season.

With 43 points from 28 games, the Reds are currently eighth in the standings, while the Blues are 11th with 39 points from 29 games. They are both quite a ways behind Tottenham Hotspur, who are in fourth place and have 50 points from 29 matches.

With 12 shots and an expected goals (xG) figure of 2.17, Chelsea was the dominant team. VAR also disallowed two goals. However, despite having four more shots on goal than Liverpool, their xG was only 0.35.

Alisson Becker and Jordan Henderson also put in good performances, which may have made manager Jurgen Klopp a little bit pleased.

Henderson was successful with 83% of his passes, including five of his nine attempts at long balls. Additionally, he recorded a successful dribble, shot on target, and ground duel.

Alisson, on the other hand, made two saves, cleared two balls, punched and claimed high, and he connected with a teammate on 39 of his 47 passes (83 percent of the time).
