The Liverpool captain doesn't get the credit he deserves on occasion. Liverpool have many world class players and standout players in the team that will get all the credit.

Having taken over the greatest captain and player Liverpool had in Steven Gerrard, which instantly comes with added pressure of performing.

On and off the pitch, the English midfielder has been an inspiration and has guided this Liverpool team to it's first Premier League title and a Champions League.

As much as Hendo has helped us win team trophies, he more than deserves an individual accolade to go with them. 

We all had our doubts when he came in but were willing to give him a chance. I dont think it was about him as a footballer, it was more of taking over from Steven Gerrard. Anyone who did would've been the same.

His passing ability is so underrated. The pass for Mohamed Salah's hat trick goal was sensational. If that was Kevin De Bruyne, you'd be seeing a Sky Sports special named 'Pass of the Century' on the next morning.

Jordan Henderson, enjoy this record. You deserve it.
