Alan Shearer points out the Liverpool player who deserve PFA Player of the Year prize and explains why


Alan Shearer has explained why Jordan Henderson should win this term Player of the Year award

The Liverpool skipper has delivered a series of eye-catching performances this season, and has been the driving force behind the club's remarkably consistent form as they chase a first Premier league title in 30 years.

Henderson found the net for the third time this season in the Reds' 4-0 win over Southampton on Saturday.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mohamed Salah were also on the scoresheet, as the Reds increase their lead at top of the Premier League to 22 points.

It is seemingly a matter of time before the league leaders will end their 30-year wait for a top-flight title.

And central to their efforts has been the consistency and leadership of Henderson, according to the league's all-time top goalscorer  Alan Shearer.

Speaking on BBC Sport's Match of the Day, Shearer said: "I believe that if the season was to end tomorrow he would be my Player of the season. Absolutely no doubt about it.

"I think he was magnificent again today. The way he drove Liverpool forward, the way he kept everything moving, his attitude, his work-rate both attacking and defensively, starting moves off, can he pass it forward? Yes he can.

"He gets his reward (of his goal) because of his hard work. I thought he was magnificent, as he has been all season.

"What a season he's having, absolutely incredible. Player of the season, definitely.

"When you look at some of their performances, how special Liverpool have been, whether it's the goalkeeper, Van Dijk, or the front three, he for me has been the driving force. He's been superb."

Shearer has won the Player of the Year award twice, one in 1994-95 when he led Blackburn Rovers to the title and the other with Newcastle United in 1996-97.
