Jordan Henderson has endured quite a bit of difficulty since acquiring the armband from local legend Steven Gerrard. His struggles with injury and form have been well documented, but he seems to be putting those days behind him with a few excellent early season performances.

Henderson’s absolute belter of a winning goal was worthy of a man of the match performance on its own merit, but he also helped Liverpool win the battle in the middle of the park. The skipper attributes everything positive surrounding the big win at Stamford Bridge to the on-going work on the training ground.

“It’s a big victory, it keeps our momentum going,” Henderson said. “We’ve been brilliant the last few weeks and in training we’ve been brilliant all week, so I had a good feeling going into the game [and] we produced.

“We’ve been training really well, following what the manager and his staff want us to do all week and executing it at a weekend like we did today. If we keep listening to what the manager says, keep working and keep performing like that, then we’ll see where we are at the end of the season.”

That’s right, lads, just keep following Jürgen Klopp’s advice. If the above statement shows anything, it’s that the players are starting to truly believe in the manager’s methods, and the positive results are starting to come at a more consistent clip.

As for the worldie of a goal, Henderson had the following to say:

“I took a good touch out of my feet then just tried to bend it in the far corner and thankfully it went in. He’s a world-class keeper but it’s about time I got a goal!”

Indeed, Hendo. Great to see the captain returning to form and banging in goals again.
