Premier League 2019-20 | Top 5 Most Underrated Players In The League
- Shining the spotlight on some Premier League players that deserve a bigger share of the recognition.
4. Jordan Henderson
It’s hard to be considered underrated when you’re the captain of the defending European champions and the champions-elect of England UNLESS you’re the captain of a star-studded side like Liverpool. Jordan Henderson has had to deal with comparisons to Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard throughout his career at Anfield and has only recently started to live up to them. His tireless and incredibly consistent displays in midfield are often outshone by his side’s high-profile attackers or incredible full-backs, but he has never let his performances drop as a result.
Henderson may not offer the flair or skill of some of his teammates, but his impact on the current Liverpool team is clear for all to see. His incredible work rate is boosted by his eye for a pass and his undeniable leadership skills. In 26 matches in the league this season, Henderson has chipped in with three goals and five assists besides helping keep 14 clean sheets and surely deserves to be mentioned in the conversation for Player of the Season in May.
