Liverpool’s New Defensive Resolve Thanks To The Form Of Henderson

A look at how Jordan Henderson has become a vital part of Liverpool’s starting eleven and a cornerstone of their Premier League title challenge this year.


So far this season Liverpool have been more secure in defense compared to previous campaigns. Their new-found resilience has led to a spurt in punters looking for the best betting offers for them to win the EPL this season at They are currently sitting second in the league and if they have a good run over the coming weeks they will be well placed to win their first title since 1990.

If Liverpool are going to win the Premier League this campaign they will need star defensive midfield player Jordan Henderson to stay fit and injury free. He is one of the main reasons why the Reds have managed to keep so many clean sheets this season. Over the last few years, Liverpool have been exceptional in attack but what has cost them dearly is their defensive frailties. This season they have managed to be more compact which has enabled the defense to be tighter at the back. Rather than having to rely on outscoring their opposition they are now able to hold onto their leads which have helped to take them up to second in the Premier League.

One of the best examples of how Liverpool have improved this season is their recent derby win over Everton. They were able to dominate the game through pressing the opposition and staying compact in defense. Klopp seems to of finally managed to carry out his style of play and they are now one of the fittest teams in the EPL along with one of the best at winning the football back as quickly as possible.

Liverpool has only conceded 20 goals in the league so far this campaign which is a big improvement on the last few season. One of the main reasons for the improvement has been the form of England International Henderson. He has been vital at providing the defense with the cover they need to stop the opposition from scoring along with offering support when needed in attack.

With the January transfer window now open Liverpool are expected to buy new players. Klopp though has stated that he is not interested signing anyone who is looking to move purely for financial gain. He has said that the second that a deal becomes purely about cash that he will pull out.

Over the past few season, Liverpool have been heavily criticised by their fans for the transfer policy in place. They have spent a fortune in the market and the outcome has been far from impressive. Since Klopp has taken over he has been given a greater say in the transfers which has resulted in more successes such as the purchase of Sadio Mane last summer and fans will be hoping for more magic from their boss this month to boost their title chances.
