Watch: Jordan Henderson v. Everton

New, comments

Liverpool narrowly missed all three points against Everton on Saturday afternoon, and Jordan Henderson was among their best on the day with another commanding midfield performance.

There were many positives to Liverpool's performance in the 1-1 draw against Everton despite the disappointing result, and most of them had to do with either Adam Lallana or Jordan Henderson. Lallana was making just his second Premier League start for Liverpool and shared man of the match honors with Henderson; the summer signing tired visibly as the second half wore on but was still running himself into the ground in the dying minutes, and his work both with and without the ball indicated that he's nearing his best.

Henderson was at the same level deeper in the midfield after a week's rest due to injury, proving capable in a more dynamic, do-it-all role alongside Steven Gerrard. In nearly all phases of the game he was terrific, leading the way in a midfield that finally looked close to midfielding for the first time since Joe Allen fell injured. It was another step in Henderson's emergence as a leader in this Liverpool squad, and in his growth as one of the league's better midfield players on his day.
