Jordan Henderson Favourite To Win PFA Player Of The Year Award

Jordan Henderson Favourite To Win PFA Player Of The Year Award

Jordan Henderson's impressive form for Liverpool has made him the favourite to win the PFA Player of the Year award, in a list unsurprisingly dominated by him and his teammates.

The Premier League season might be three months from officially ending but at the top of the table the winners are pretty much guaranteed to be Liverpool.

When it comes to silverware attention will soon turn to who wins the end of the season player awards and the betting suggests it'll go to one of the champions elect, with Henderson now favourite as per Sky Bet.

The midfield is arguably the area of the pitch for Klopp's side that gets the least attention with whatever combination of the players being seen as more functional than exceptional.

However in the last few years the club captain has become a hugely valuable member of the side and his form this season as the Reds have dominated the league has been exceptional.

Speaking about the former Sunderland player's performance on Saturday's Match of the Day, Alan Shearer called the 29-year-old his player of the season, saying, "Jordan Henderson, again [the best of the bunch]. I believe if the season were to end tomorrow he would be my player of the season. Absolutely no doubt about it.

"I think he was magnificent again. The way he drove Liverpool forward. The way he kept everything moving. His attitude. His work rate. Both attacking and defensively starting the move off. Give and go. Can he pass it forward? Yes, he can."

"I thought he was magnificent. I think he has been all season. He keeps Liverpool moving forward - What a season he is having. Absolutely incredible. Player of the Season definitely. When you look at some of their performances and how special Liverpool have been. Whether it's the goalkeeper. Van Dijk the centre-half. The front three. He for me has been the driving force. He has been superb."

Either Sadio Mane or Mo Salah could yet end up as top goalscorer in the league and make a late run to deserve the award but that could come too late to steal it from Henderson.

One issue for Liverpool players is that, with no stand out players in a brilliant all round team, they could end up splitting the vote as Manchester United players did back in 1999.

Sir Alex Ferguson's side won the Treble but David Ginola ended up winning the PFA Player of the Year award after voters were split over which United players was the beat.
