Jordan Henderson the main man in Liverpool victory over Leicester

Liverpool Wall

Liverpool came from behind to beat Leicester at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday evening.

The hosts took the lead on 22 minutes when Leonardo Ulloa's shot found the back of the net via the post and the back of Simon Mignolet, but Adam Lallana pounced to bring the visitors level four minutes later.

A calm finish from the returning Steven Gerrard handed the visitors the lead early in the second half, before Jordan Henderson secured the points late on, following a Wes Morgan red card. 

Here are the top five statistics from the Reds' mid-week encounter:

13 - With his goal in Tuesday's victory, Steven Gerrard has now scored for the first time in open play - not directly from a free-kick or penalty since - January 2014. Nonetheless, no English player has scored more goals (13) than the Liverpool captain in the Premier League this year.
