Jamie Carragher: This Liverpool player in form of his life under Jurgen Klopp
The former Liverpool defender has been impressed with Jordan Henderson's performances this season
Jamie Carragher believes Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is in the form of his life under manager Jurgen Klopp.
The England international started the season in a new holding role in Klopp’s side after previously being used in a more advanced position.
Henderson was part of the Liverpool side that struggled in a 2-0 loss to promoted side Burnley at Turf Moor in August.
However, the 26-year-old has bounced back with a series of impressive performances in the heart of Klopp’s side.
Henderson even scored a wonder goal in a 2-1 win at Chelsea before Antonio Conte’s side went on to win 12 games on the bounce.
Writing in his Daily Mail column ahead of Liverpool’s home clash against Manchester City on New Year’s Eve, Carragher explained what has impressed him about Henderson this term.
“When Jordan Henderson played as a holding midfielder at Burnley in August, Klopp was urged never to use him there again. Four months on, the captain is in the form of his life and performing as if he’s played there all his career,” Carragher told The Daily Mail.
Henderson moved to Liverpool in a £20m deal from Sunderland in 2011 during Kenny Dalglish’s spell in charge of the Anfield outfit.
Liverpool started the Premier League weekend in second place and six points behind leaders Chelsea.
