Liverpool captain Henderson on track to reach 400 appearances in special year

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is on track to reach 400 appearances in all competitions for the club this season.

Henderson requires 36 games in 2020-21 to achieve the landmark figure, which only 26 players have previously surpassed in club history.

With Liverpool set to kick off against Leeds United on Saturday, the No.14 has been stepping up his rehabilitation from the knee injury that ruled him out of the run-in in July.

Should he continue the trend of the previous three seasons upon his return – he clocked up a minimum of 40 matches in each – Henderson will be on course to total 400 in the closing weeks and months of 2020-21.

The timing would therefore align closely with the 10th anniversary of the midfielder's arrival at the club; he sealed his transfer from Sunderland in June 2011 and began his haul of appearances with a debut two months later.
