Liverpool were spanked by a well-oiled Arsenal attack and were beaten thoroughly, 4-1 at the Emirates, though Jordan Henderson's goal keeps him a top fantasy producer.
Daniel Sturridge was fit enough to make the squad but not enough to start, and by the time he was introduced to begin the second half, the match was pretty far out of reach. The defense that had been as solid as any for months now were poor today. Goals were conceded where Kolo Toure was beaten, Alberto Moreno was beaten and Emre Can was beaten. Raheem Sterling got the nod to start up top and drew a penalty in the final quarter hour. Henderson was able to convert, though he just managed to squeak it past David Ospina. Regardless, Henderson continues to prove that this is a breakout season for him and can put up Gerrard-esque numbers in the Gerrard role. He will certainly be talked about heading into next season. The loss is a major blow for the Reds hopes of a top 4 finish, as the gap between them and Manchester United look set to widen. Apr 4 - 9:56 AM

Liverpool notched their 6th consecutive clean sheet in a row away from Anfield and Jordan Henderson was lucky to score the lone goal of the match as the Reds defeated a solid Swansea side 0-1.

It was all Swansea in the first half but their failure to grab a goal when they were in control wound up costing them even a draw. By the 68th minute, it still looked to be the case until the Henderson goal. On the break, Daniel Sturridge collected a pass and immediately flicked a backheel into Henderson's path. He came into the area, ready to strike, as Jordi Amat came in to tackle. The result was the ball bouncing off of Henderson's shin and looping over a helpless Lukasz Fabianski. The equalizer never came for the Swans and the Reds hit a clean sheet streak they have not managed since 1972. Defenders and Simon Mignolet are earning their fantasy value regularly these days. Hosting Manchester United next will be an even bigger test of their blazing form.

With Steven Gerrard entering the final stretch of his legendary Liverpool career, all signs point to Jordan Henderson taking over the reigns as the engine in the Reds midfield.

A twenty-two point effort against Burnley had plenty of managers scratching their heads as to why they invested over twice as much cash on any of the other options at Liverpool. With a healthy 12 spot the week before, Henderson is showing that this is not a one-off. Along with a game-winning goal and an assist, he racked up points in just about every other category. And for as long as Gerrard isn't on the pitch, Henderson is the de facto penalty taker. A 4.5m bump in price will pump the brakes for investors, but he needs to be considered regardless, especially as an option for next season when Gerrard is out of the picture.

Jordan Henderson, left out of the side that traveled to Turkey for the Europa Cup, will be assessed ahead of Liverpool's big clash with Manchester City in Week 27.

Henderson missed out on the Europa Cup loss with an ankle issue picked up in the win over Southampton in Week 26. With the top four of the Premier League the only avenue left for Liverpool to make next season's Champions League, Brendan Rodgers will be pushing hard to have his best team available to face the defending champions. A win over City and Liverpool can feel good about their chances at the top four after a brutal recent schedule. A loss and the climb will start to look pretty tough.

Liverpool will travel to Besiktas in the Europa League on Thursday without a number of players including vice-captain Jordan Henderson who picked up a minor ankle injury during the win at St Marys’ on Sunday.

Henderson was a notable omission from training on Wednesday as he joined long-term absentees Jose Enrique, Jon Flanagan, Lucas Leiva and Brad Jones in the treatment room but the stand-in skipper is expected to recover in time to face Manchester City in Sundays’ crucial game. Brendan Rodgers will also be without Mamadou Sakho who is still struggling with a minor hip complaint and Glen Johnson [illness] while Steven Gerrard [hamstring] will not be risked although the trio should be close for game week 27 – Philippe Coutinho remained on Merseyside [rested] as Liverpool travel to Turkey with a slender one goal advantage hoping to progress through to the last 16 of the competition.

While he may not receive the amount of headlines his fellow teammates enjoy, Jordan Henderson has been a solid contributor this season for Liverpool, both in fantasy and reality.

The Reds are in top form right now and investment in all of their players are ticking upward, even with a tricky road clash with Southampton up next. Henderson may be the best option for this sort of matchup. While he does not rack up goals and assists with regularity, he has proven to provide consistent returns in other categories, making him the 4th highest scoring player on the team in fantasy this season. Meanwhile, his price tag is below the 10m mark, much cheaper than any alternatives from the Reds. On a points per pound basis, only Raheem Sterling has done better this season.

Jordan Henderson was amongst the goals in Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Bulgarian side Ludogorets, marking his return to fitness and a potential fantasy option against Stoke.

The cat has been out of the bag for a while now when it comes to investing in Liverpool these days, whether in attack or defense, but Henderson should creep onto radars as the Reds host a horrendous Stoke defense this weekend. At under 8m in the Yahoo game, he won't cost you as much as their other attacking options and if the Reds find a way to disappoint again, at least you aren't paying a premium in the process.

Brendan Rodgers has announced that midfielder Jordan Henderson "should be fit" for Liverpool's trip to Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Expect Henderson to make the starting XI but with the current form of the Reds he is not heading into the weekend with much fantasy appeal. That said, the "should" phrasing will keep his status as a slight doubt for Week 12, with Joe Allen or Adam Lallana the likely replacement options.

Jordan Henderson helped set up Liverpool's first and scored their second en route to a 2-1 home win over West Bromwich Albion.

Jordan Henderson combined nicely with Adam Lallana on a well-worked opener for Liverpool which seemed to break a tense atmosphere at Anfield. The Reds faithful were on edge with West Brom threatening to hold the home team goalless in the first half on the back of a string of poor results in September. The Lallana goal going into halftime appeared to be the boost Liverpool needed as they played better in the second half. Saido Berahino converted a poor penalty call to draw the score even in the second half but Raheem Sterling found Henderson just five minutes later to seal the win.

Jordan Henderson has emerged as a late fitness doubt for England who take on Switzerland in Basel on Monday as they begin their 2016 European qualifying campaign.

The Liverpool midfielder rolled his ankle during the final practise session on Sunday and now faces a race against time to be fit for the match-up against arguably one of England’s toughest group opponents - Fabian Delph or James Milner are his likely replacements. Jordan Henderson became the fourth England player during the international break to suffer injury joining Jack Colback, Ben Foster and club teammate Daniel Sturridge; although the medical team remains confident he could yet be involved having walked unaided from the training pitch for further assessment and treatment.

Liverpool's Jordan Henderson was sent off in injury time during the clash with Manchester City and faces a three match ban.

Henderson was shown a straight red card by Mark Clattenverg for a dangerous challenge on Samir Nasri, which means he will miss three of Liverpool's last four games. Lucas or Joe Allen will replace the midfielder, but his loss is a big blow for the title run-in.

Liverpool continued their run toward a Champion's League spot with another goal barrage at Anfield, defeating Swansea City 4-3 behind braces from Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson.

Liverpool's brand of football may not be preferred by the purists, but the results cannot be argued as they are enjoying successes they have not felt in years with their nonstop attacking display, and fantasy managers cannot be more thankful for it. Daniel Sturridge is on absolute fire. Not only must he be owned in every fantasy manager's team, it is looking more appealing to give him the armband over his teammate Luis Suarez. He has scored in eight straight games and the dynamic duo, despite missing time from suspension and injury, have combined now for 40 goals. Meanwhile, even Jordan Henderson showed his scoring abilities, contributing two superb goals himself. Liverpool have scored 3 or more goals at Anfield nine times now this season. When they are at home, there is no such thing as having too many attacking Reds in your XI.

Jordan Henderson broke his wrist against Arsenal at the weekend, but will be fine to play with a cast.

Liverpool are thin in central midfield, and it's Henderson who knits the side together. They can ill afford to lose him, even against Fulham - if as expected, the match gets played despite a transit strike.

Jordan Henderson is a doubt for the weekend's match against Spurs with an ankle knock. He was wearing a brace yesterday, and is waiting to learn the severity of the injury.

Jordan Henderson was injured in the tackle that earned Kevin Nolan a red card. With Steven Gerrard already ruled out for weeks with a hamstring injury, Liverpool can ill-afford to lose Henderson. Lucas and Joe Allen would be the remaining midfield options for the Reds.
