Jordan Henderson: Liverpool midfielder has earned Brendan Rodgers' praise

Henderson has not started the last four Premier League games for the Reds, which has seen victories over Swansea, Wigan and Spurs followed by a 3-1 defeat at Southampton last time out.

But Rodgers knows if he needs to juggle his resources and bring the midfielder into his starting line-up, the 22-year-old will be ready to play his part.

Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo: "It's just the balance and it depends on the opponent.

"Jordan has been excellent and his attitude has been great. The team has been winning as well.

"But Jordan has been excellent, he's a good player, he's improving tactically all the time and I know if I need to call on him he will be ready."
