Jordan Henderson

Henderson has captained the Reds to Champions League and Premier League glory over the last 13 months and is a strong contender for the PFA Player of Year award.

We’ve compared Liverpool’s record with the midfielder in the starting XI to without him since the start of the 2018-19 season.

Without Henderson starting

Games: 43

Points per game: 2.13
Win rate: 67.4%

Goals per game: 2.2

As the stats show, Liverpool have a higher win rate and pick up more points per game with Henderson in the team, although this does not take into account standard of opposition.

Jurgen Klopp’s side actually average more goals per game when the midfielder is left out of the starting line-up, but they also concede a lot more goals without him.
