Liverpool keeper Mignolet: Henderson massive for us

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet hailed skipper Jordan Henderson for his performance in victory over Burnley.

The midfielder scored one and created the other for Daniel Sturridge.

"Jordan is a massive player for us," Mignolet told the Liverpool Echo.

"He is a very positive character who always works hard and leads by example. He's vocal both on the pitch and in the dressing room. He goes in front of us and everyone follows behind.

"We've got a young squad but that doesn't mean there aren't leaders in the team.

"Every individual is contributing to the team. The big thing for us is we're a unit and we're working well together."
