21: v Newcastle 2012/13

Henderson scored two goals in this game one of only two braces he has scored for Liverpool. This was the second of the two goals and carries an element of fortune but also highlights his technique. This was the sixth goal in an emphatic 6-0 victory at St. James’ Park. This was the first game of Luis Suarez’s suspension for biting Branislav Ivanovic in the previous game.

We won a free kick late in the game on the left hand side of the penalty area. Henderson lined it up and whipped it in for a cross. But the bend and pace of the free kick deceived Robert Elliott in goal. No one else got a touch and the ball ran into the far post to make it six nil.

With Gerrard, Suarez and Coutinho in the game it is a little surprising that Henderson was given the kick to take. Back then his delivery was a little more consistent than it has been in recent seasons. Also Coutinho rarely lets anyone have a sniff of a free kick near the box today.
