Liverpool star Henderson was on target as the Reds kept their hopes of Premier League title glory alive with a 3-1 win over Southampton at St Mary’s.
The England international scored a third goal of the night for Jurgen Klopp’s team, coming after previous strikes from Naby Keita and Mohamed Salah.
And the Liverpool star trolled Neville after the game.
The Manchester United legend was watching the match with Sky Sports and the former defender has now revealed that Henderson said to him.
He said: “Jordan Henderson came over to me at the end of the game and said ‘you don’t look very happy’.
“And I said ‘I’m not Jordan’.
“I feel cold [about title race] because I’ve not got a particular favourite between either side to win the title.
“I am sat there thinking it’s an inevitability. Once they got control and hold of the game.
“I just asked five seconds before what odds Liverpool were to win the game. I’ve never felt so sure that Liverpool were going to win the game.
“It just felt like it was absolutely going to happen.”
After the game, Neville admitted that he thinks Liverpool are ‘less emotional’ this season.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if City dropped points in two games, and Liverpool dropped points in two games,” Neville told Sky Sports. “But I never felt so sure that Liverpool were going to win a game as I was tonight.
“It is an outstanding level of performance from both teams this season. We have got great games to watch.
“Next Sunday is huge. Crystal Palace, next Sunday, is equally as tough for City. If City do go and win that match and the Liverpool players know they have to go and win against Chelsea the legs start to get that little bit heavier.
“If City drop points, then Liverpool will bounce onto that pitch. We are going to witness it first hand all the way to the end of the season.
“Liverpool are in a good moment. They look less emotional than last season the way they have played. There was a level of desperation, a level of frantic-ness in the way they played [last season].
“Against Southampton in the first part of the game they struggled, I thought Southampton played really well, but then they got control of the game, and control is important. Composure is important, Mohamed Salah [who scored Liverpool’s second] was clinical in a crucial moment. He will need to be cold towards the end of the season.
“Liverpool are in a far better position than they were a few years ago when they were going for the title, because at that time, it was a bit more desperate that time, a bit more frantic.”
