Chris Sutton believes Liverpool FC captain Jordan Henderson is an extremely underrated player.

The Reds skipper captained England to a 1-0 win over the Netherlands in an international friendly last week.

Henderson produced an able performance in the middle of the park to help secure a morale boosting win ahead of the World Cup.

The 27-year-old has often been criticised for his perceived limited performances since replacing Steven Gerrard as captain.

The England star has scored one goal and has made one assist in 20 appearances in the Premier League this term.

However, Henderson has also faced some criticism of his performances in a holding role for Jurgen Klopp’s team.

Sutton, though, believes the criticism is unwarranted and is a big admirer of the Liverpool FC captain.

“Henderson is extremely underrated and he is a player who gets a lot of stick,” Sutton told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“He has a real influence on the Liverpool team when he plays.”

Henderson moved to Liverpool FC in a £20m deal from Sunderland in the 2011 summer transfer window under Kenny Dalglish.

The England international has netted 24 times in 269 appearances in all competitions during his Liverpool FC career so far.

Liverpool FC warmed up for their Champions League quarter-final clash with a 2-1 win at Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.
