Liverpool: Fans plead their case for Jordan Henderson to win Player of the Year after 4-0 win over Southampton - Liverpool

Plenty of Liverpool fans have been making the case for Jordan Henderson to be in the frame for PFA Player of the Year as the Reds opened a 22-point lead at the summit of the Premier League today.

Henderson has faced his share of criticism in the past at Anfield but was lauded by Jurgen Klopp after the recent win over Wolves and now has two goals in his last three league outings, having also scored at Molineux on January 23rd.

The 29-year-old showcased his ability with and without the ball against the Saints by playing two key passes in addition to his goal, while also making three interceptions (as per SofaScore). Alex Smith of The Mirror wrote: “Those calls to name his player of the season are just going to grow louder and louder”, adding that he received a standing ovation upon his late withdrawal for Adam Lallana.

These Liverpool fans on Twitter want to see Henderson being recognised with individual honours later his season, with one supporter lauding his performances as “unreal”:
