The five who made the biggest impression on us during today’s action.
Another Premier League Saturday has now drawn to a close, with Manchester City’s late rally at Villa Park enough for them to momentarily close the gap on leaders Chelsea, whilst Liverpool also returned to form after edging a 2-1 win over West Brom at Anfield.
Having analysed the action, here are our five heroes from the day’s matches:
Jordan Henderson (Liverpool)
Despite Liverpool’s struggles during the early weeks of the Premier League season, midfielder Jordan Henderson tends to be a model of consistency, plowing a midfield furrow alongside an ever-changing partner, but his energy and neatness in possession rarely deserting him. Henderson came more to the fore during today’s vital win over West Brom, however, as one of the driving forces that pushed Liverpool into the ascendancy at Anfield before he was rewarded with the winning goal.
