Jordan Henderson put in his best performance for Liverpool so far on Saturday against Bolton. Some fans were already getting on Henderson’s back but I hope he has quickly silenced them after his great performance on Saturday where he also got his first goal for Liverpool.
It is amazing what one goal can do to a player, after the goal, Henderson’s confidence seemed to grow as he was stroking the passes in midfield. I am not too sure if Henderson’s position is out on the right in midfield or he should be playing a more central role. But for now he must be glad that he is getting game time.
It will be interesting to see what will happen to Henderson when Gerrard is fit again. It is likely that Gerrard will replace Henderson in the side but our very own captain will find it hard to displace Hendo right now.
After the match Henderson told us how happy he was.”Scoring for Liverpool, especially your first goal, means a lot – you could see that from my celebration. But the main thing was the team performance. I thought we were brilliant throughout the game.
“I’ve worked hard and got my head down but I think I can do a lot better, I think there’s still a lot more to come. I just need to focus on what I need to do, keep working hard in training and hopefully that will come through on the pitch like it did today.”
