Jordan Henderson believes his all-round game has got better over the past two years — and he puts his development in the main down to the arrival of Brendan Rodgers.

When Rodgers arrived in June last year Henderson had already racked up 48 appearances in a single season at the club.

But the midfielder had to wait until November 22 to start a game in the Barclays Premier League during the 2012-13 campaign.

However five goals followed in the new year as Henderson cemented his place in Rodgers’ starting XI — and he’s played every minute of the Reds’ league season so far.

“I feel as though I’ve progressed over the last year or two” Henderson told ”I’ll try and push on. The manager has been brilliant with me and everybody else here. He’s been fantastic on a personal level. I think I’ve improved my game since he’s come to the club and he’s helped me to do that.
