Jordan Henderson is in the running to win PFA Player of the Year.

THERE are two leading contenders for the PFA Player of the Year prize in a season dominated by the Liverpool winning machine.

Reds captain Jordan Henderson and last season’s PFA award winner Virgil van Dijk are the two names I would be considering if I was getting voting forms from the PFA and if pushed to make a pick, captain fantastic Henderson would win it by a short head.

It’s often difficult to make a selection when footballers get the forms through from the PFA around this time of the year, as nothing has been decided at the top of the table, yet that problem has been removed this year.
