Liverpool suffered a second successive home Premier League defeat when they lost to Brighton on Wednesday.
The result means Jurgen Klopp’s side have fallen seven points behind leaders Manchester City, who visit on Sunday.
But there was plenty that went unnoticed or under the radar during the 90 minutes at Anfield.
The tone for a woeful Liverpool display was set during an opening half-hour in which they constantly gave the ball to Brighton.
By no means the only player to have a bit of a nightmare, Xherdan Shaqiri, playing on the left, regularly coughed up possession too cheaply.
One instance led to a bout of pressure from Brighton and prompted a stinging vocal rebuke from Henderson once the ball was eventually cleared.
To be fair, the skipper had probably screamed at most of his team-mates for the same issue come the final whistle – as well as himself.
Kabak watches on
As Liverpool floundered dismally, the new arrivals were probably wondering what on earth they had let themselves in for.
While Ben Davies was among the substitutes, Ozan Kabak had to content himself with keeping his eyes open in the stands during another tedious evening.
The Turkey international, on loan from Schalke until the end of the season, also watched on from the sidelines during the warm-up.
He then received a big hug from Kostas Tsimikas. Which was nice.

Keita comes back
There was a more familiar face making a welcome return to Anfield on Wednesday night.
Sat alongside Kabak in the Main Stand was the lesser-spotted Naby Keita.
The Guinean hasn’t appeared for the first team since the 7-0 win at Crystal Palace before Christmas, one of eight first-team players missing against Brighton.
Klopp will hope it isn’t long before Keita is back where he belongs – on the pitch.

Anfield out of tune
For those of us who have been able to attend Anfield regularly this season, the pre-match playlist has prompted almost as much debate as any VAR decision.
It has, shall we say, not always been aware of the fact we are in the 21st Century. Fair play, though, to the mix of modern and classic that caught the ear of the press box on Wednesday.
However, all the good work was undone when the final tune was abruptly cut short for the horror that is this season’s Premier League anthem.
Given what followed, the lesson is surely this – never cut off Earth, Wind and Fire in all their glory.
