Could one of these three players be Liverpool's player of the season?

Jordan Henderson, Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho have all had their impressive moments this season.

Given that this may well be a season where Liverpool don't finish in the Champions League places after a disappointing start to the campaign, there have been several players who have impressed as the season has gone on.

In the summer, Brendan Rodgers brought in as many as nine new faces as Liverpool began life after star striker Luis Suarez, and had to endure five months without the other man who struck up such a deadly partnership with the Uruguayan in Daniel Sturridge.

It means that other Liverpool players have had to step up and after spending over £100 million in the summer, Liverpool fans will have wanted to be impressed by some of their new signings as well as those currently at the club.

Here are three who could be their player of the year

Philippe Coutinho:

The obvious candidate as the Brazilian is a joy to watch with the ball at his feet even when he isn't 100% on his game. There have been calls for him to improve his goal return to really enter the bracket of world class players, and a couple of spectacular strikes in the second half of the season have certainly showed signs that he has a few goals in his locker.

It is noticeable just how much more of a potent and attacking threat Liverpool are with the Brazilian in their side, than when he is not.

Emre Can:

The midfielder now being used in defence as Brendan Rodgers restructured his side in order to turn around the fortunes of Liverpool's season and has become a firm favourite among the fans. He's provided drive, vision, great passing ability and strength, and looks as though he will be a valuable addition to the side going forward.

Honourable mentions should also go to Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho for their performances in the Liverpool back line in the second half of the season, as they have brought some strong leadership and stability to an area of the side that badly needed it, allowing Emre Can to flourish in his role.

Jordan Henderson

The favourite to succeed Steven Gerrard as the captain of Liverpool when the Reds legend departs for LA Galaxy in the summer. Some have wondered who should be the man to step into the big shoes that Gerrard leaves behind. During a spell Gerrard had on the sidelines, Henderson  has put in a series of commanding performances and has started to find the net a bit more regularly - something which he has openly admitted he needed to address to improve as a player.

Between now and the end of the season, Liverpool are going to need their leaders to show their capabilities if they are to achieve their objectives.
