Date published: Tuesday 29th November 2016 11:43

Jordan Henderson’s growing stature at Liverpool is underlined by some impressive stats this week, while Marcus Rashford’s 100% passing accuracy shows another side to his game.

Henderson, playing in a slightly deeper role for the Reds this season, is enjoying more and more influence for Jurgen Klopp’s side and is quickly turning into one of the most complete midfielders in the Premier League.

Once again his steadying influence played its part as Liverpool returned to winning ways with a 2-0 success against Sunderland at the weekend.
