Jordan Henderson’s slowly but surely returning from his lengthy injury which ruined his and affected our start to the season.
And versus Leicester City at Anfield on Boxing Day, the captain put in his best performance since he came back.
The skipper played centrally with Emre Can in a 4-4-2 and bossed the Tigers throughout. He was first to tackles, made clever interceptions but most importantly – displayed creative flair when in possession – something the rest of our central midfielders have largely struggled to this term.
Now fit, Henderson will be an automatic selection for Jurgen Klopp, whose style he fits perfectly.
Watch below, and see for yourselves that the captain is back! His ball to Christian Benteke in the second half is our particular highlight…
