Anfield Night

Jordan Henderson has been named Liverpool's best player of last month.

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has been named the club’s Player of the Month for March.

The England international netted three goals in five appearances for the Reds last month and the club’s official Twitter account has since posted a picture of the midfielder with his award.

Liverpool started the month in fine form, defeating reigning Premier League champions Manchester City 2-1 and following up that victory with a 2-0 win against Burnley.

Henderson scored in both encounters, while he also netted in the 1-0 win against Swansea City that preceded the vital match against Manchester United.

That game did not go according to plan, with Liverpool losing 2-1, but Henderson’s impact in March cannot be understated and his award is well deserved.

It remains to be seen what the rest of the season has in store for Liverpool but they have a chance of making it to the FA Cup final, with their semi-final clash against Aston Villa taking place at Wembley on Sunday.

Once again, Henderson looks set to be key.
