Jordan Henderson was appalled after a fan snatched his shirt from another supporter after Liverpool’s win at Crystal Palace on Sunday – but he personally stepped in to make things right.

The Reds won 3-1 at Selhurst Park to close the gap to Premier League leaders Manchester City and they were boosted throughout the tough competition by their away voice.

Henderson, 31, came to the traveling fans after the full-time whistle to thank them for their support before removing his No.14 jersey to pass it to someone in the crowd.

However, in shocking scenes, a video posted on social media shows the shirt being grabbed by another onlooker.

Henderson was seen pointing at the culprit and protests from others outside can be heard.

It doesn’t look like the original shirt reached the person it was intended for, but Henderson made sure they didn’t go home empty-handed.

The Liverpool captain can be seen gesturing at the victim and heard him say, “I’ll get you another one”, before turning and heading for the tunnel.

Henderson kept his word and even posed next to the team bus for a photo with the fan.

The happy supporter tweeted, “Such a lovely guy. Great performance today and thank you so much for coming and giving your shirt as promised to my friend Helen.”

Henderson played the full 90 minutes in south London and was “very happy” with the result, although he admits his team “slowed down at times”.

Goals from Virgil van Dijk and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain gave Liverpool a 2-0 half-time lead.

Fabinho then restored the two-goal cushion with a late penalty after Odsonne Edouard pulled one back for Palace.

“Very happy with the win overall,” Henderson said. Liverpoolfc.com. “The first 35 minutes I thought we were controlling the game, playing great stuff, great football.

“Two good goals and then we eased off a bit in the last 10 minutes of the first half, which we were disappointed to go into at half time.

“Then in the second half it was tough, especially when they scored and their home crowd got up, it can be tough.

“But I think the guys dug really well, we got the penalty towards the end to secure the win and overall it was a nice night to get the three points.”

Liverpool have a long break before returning to action in early February to face Cardiff City in the FA Cup fourth round.
