Liverpool boss Rodgers delighted with goalscorer Henderson

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was delighted with the goalscoring performance of Jordan Henderson in victory over Norwich City.

Henderson hit a superb half-volley to send the Reds on their way to a 5-0 win.

"In terms of Jordan, he's a terrific young talent. People forget his age (22)," Rodgers said.

"He came with a big price tag and it was always just going to take him time.

"The great thing is he works his socks off every single day and you see him there: he presses, he hangs, he works, but he's also got great quality and the goal he scored is brilliant technique.

"He had to shoot with his body to produce a wonderful finish. That was the real vital goal for us because that gave us the flow then in the game and gave us that confidence to go on and push on."
