Liverpool have had some iconic captains over the years. I grew up watching Steven Gerrard lead the side out. His all action, no nonsense, blood and thunder style of play mesmerised me as a kid. Our current skipper is a completely different player but every inch a leader. The captain boasts one stat that could silence his critics: Jordan Henderson hasn’t been dispossessed once in the Premier League this season.
Jordan Henderson superstar
Liverpool signed Jordan Henderson from Sunderland in June 2011, paying £20m for the midfielder.
In the years immediately following his arrival there were question marks over his future at the club.
At a point there was even suggestions he could head to Fulham as part of a swap deal for Clint Dempsey.
However, during the Jürgen Klopp reign we’ve seen the midfielder come into his own as a player and a leader – guiding his team to a Premier League trophy and a Champions League win.

Jordan Henderson stat
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been in superlative form this season.
The Reds skipper has been guiding his team to gritty win after gritty win.
WhoScored have revealed an impressive stat behind his impressive performances.
Jordan Henderson hasn’t been dispossessed once in the Premier League this season.
The skipper has been so assured and composed on the ball that nobody has been able to tackle him.
What RTK has to say
We probably could’ve told you this ourselves.
The man is just so reliable on the ball, he is such a safe pair of hands (feet).
Whenever the ball comes to him you can bet he’ll control it well and recycle possession effectively.
This campaign has been just further evidence of how underrated the Reds skipper is. He is a world class midfielder, people should start acting like it.
