Barton accused Henderson of "trying to be a Steven Gerrard clone" earlier this afternoon, questioning the England midfielder's stand-in skipper role and suggesting he will never be good enough to emulate Gerrard.

"How's Henderson trying to impersonate Gerrard?" Carragher responded on Twitter. "Who said he's the next Gerrard? Wearing armbands, would you say no to captaincy?"
