Fabinho factor can help Jordan Henderson hit new heights for Liverpool

Jordan Henderson appears to be a man on a mission at the moment.

The England international inspired his side to a vital 3-1 win over Southampton in the Premier League last week having frustratingly started on the bench.

He was then drafted back in for the Champions League quarter-final first leg against FC Porto on Tuesday, where he starred at Anfield.

The £20 million signing from Sunderland (BBC Sport) played a more advanced role for the Reds along with Naby Keita, with Fabinho anchoring the midfield.

The Brazilian has emerged as a brilliant signing for Liverpool, and arguably, he has the potential to help the captain hit new heights for the club.

 

TBR’s view

Given Fabinho’s quality and consistency in the ‘number six’ role, many have suggested that Henderson’s time as a guaranteed starter is over.

But last night’s display was proof that it doesn’t have to be the beginning of the end for the 28-year-old.

Arguably, Fabinho’s growing importance for Liverpool can help light a fire under Henderson.

The £43.7 million signing from AS Monaco (Sky Sports) should be starting every game, but the competition he provides can prompt a significant improvement in Henderson.

He needs that competition in order to reach the next level – he is arguably at his peak now and needs to be showing he can be indispensable.
