Henderson Should Win Premier League POTY Award - Alan Shearer

English Premier League [EPL] all-time top scorer, Alan Shearer, has heaped Jordan Henderson with praise as the latter captained Liverpool to a record-breaking 24th win from their opening 25 games.

Shearer believes Henderson deserves to be crowned the Premier League's Player of the Year award.

Alan Shearer, who won the POTY award in the 1994/95 season when his goals led Blackburn to their first League title, showered praises on the midfielder during a post-match analysis on the BBC Sports programme on Saturday.

The former England and Newcastle captain said;

"I believe that if the season was to end tomorrow he would be my Player of the season. Absolutely no doubt about it,"

"I think he was magnificent again today. The way he drove Liverpool forward, the way he kept everything moving, his attitude, his work-rate both attacking and defensively, starting moves off, can he pass it forward? Yes, he can.

"He gets his reward (of his goal) because of his hard work. I thought he was magnificent, as he has been all season.”

After a drab and goalless first half at Anfield, second-half goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson himself, and a brace for Mohamed Salah gave league leaders, Liverpool, a commanding 4-0 victory over Ralph Hasenhuttl's Southampton side.
