Jordan Henderson is reaping the reward for the number of extra hours he has put in on the training pitch, according to Gary Neville.
The former Man Utd player, who has been a part of the England setup in recent years, says he has witnessed our captain’s dedication to his craft first-hand.”What I’ve seen from Jordan Henderson in the past 18 months is an ability to work on his technique,”
“What I’ve seen from Jordan Henderson in the past 18 months is an ability to work on his technique,” said Neville.
“He’s taking set-pieces, corner kicks and shooting from distance. He’s absolutely applied himself on the training pitch to do that. When you kick 50 balls after training, five times a week, that’s 250 balls kicked a week. When you multiply that by the amount of years he’s been doing that for, you get pretty good at it”
“He’s made himself the player he is today and that’s the reward you get by scoring an absolutely wonderful goal.” (SkySports)
Henderson made headlines around the world last night with an early goal of the season contender. Picking up Gary Cahill’s botched clearance 30-yards from goal, he took one touch to set himself before unleashing a stunning curling effort into the top corner.
The goal helped us beat Chelsea 2-1, making Klopp the first manager since Arsene Wenger in 1997 to win on his first two visits to Stamford Bridge.
2 – Jurgen Klopp is the first manager since Arsene Wenger in 1997 to win his first two PL visits to Stamford Bridge as a manager. Normal.

The win moved us up to fourth in the table, level on points with Chelsea and Everton but behind them on goal difference. Everton face Middlesborough this weekend.
