Video: Jordan Henderson’s top 10 goals for Liverpool

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has scored a host of great goals for the club since making the move from Sunderland in 2011.

The Reds paid £16 million to bring Henderson to Merseyside during Kenny Dalglish‘s first summer transfer window since returning as manager.

Over the five years he has spent with the club so far, Henderson has endured a number of highs and lows, but now looks to be regaining the form and stature that saw him named captain in 2015.

This was capped by an excellent goal in Liverpool’s 2-1 victory over Chelsea earlier in September, beating Thibaut Courtois from 25 yards with an exceptional curling strike.

To mark Henderson’s Stamford Bridge masterpiece, the club have released a package of the 26-year-old’s 10 best goals in a Liverpool shirt.

These range from an opportunist’s strike against Chelsea in 2012, capitalising on a John Terry slip, to his contribution to January’s 5-4 comeback victory away to Norwich City.

Also included are his first goal for the club, at home to Bolton Wanderers in 2011, an impudent chip away to Aston Villa in 2013 and his fine, hooked effort against Norwich earlier in the same year.

Henderson’s Steven Gerrard-esque piledriver against Burnley at the beginning of 2015, in a performance that announced him as a solid contender for full-time captaincy, takes the No. 5 spot.

His emphatic curler against Manchester City in the same year is No. 2, while it was perhaps predictable that his goal against Chelsea stands as No. 1.

While Henderson has scored just 23 goals in his 221 games for Liverpool so far, this top 10 proves that, when he does, they are worth the wait, and are often hugely important for the Reds.
