Jordan Henderson is yet to commit to a long-term deal with Liverpool.
Liverpool may have been ruing the day Steven Gerrard announced his Anfield departure, but in Jordan Henderson it looks like they have a credible replacement if ever there was one.
The former Sunderland man has captained the side 12 times this season, with an excellent record of nine wins and three draws, according to talkSPORT.
Henderson scored a scorching goal against Man City, and the screaming shot from outside the area harked back to those his soon-to-be predecessor has long delivered on the grandest of stages.
With the FA Cup still firmly in their sights and the race for Champions League places hotting up, Henderson’s presence will be vital if the club want to secure their first trophy since 2012.
It will be interesting to see just who lifts the cup – should Liverpool land the trophy. In what might be seen as a passing of the baton, a joint lift between the two skippers might send a nice message.
