First thing's first, what a goal from Jordan Henderson.

For years Liverpool's captain has bore the brunt of criticism from fans and the media alike and perhaps undeservedly so.

But against Chelsea on Friday night, he gave another timely reminder of his talent with a truly sensational strike from 30 yards out.

From Gary Cahill's tame clearance in the 36th minute, Henderson trapped the ball before bending his shot past Thibaut Courtois and into the top-right corner.

If ever there was a time to say 'Steven Gerrard would have been proud of that', that was it.

Whilst the unanimous reaction amongst Liverpool fans across the country will have been ecstacy, for the rest of us, it was that of shock.

Literally no one saw it coming - not even Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic, apparently.

In the video below, the 20-year-old produced a genuinely hilarious reaction to Henderson's goal that encapsulated how everyone was feeling at that moment.

GRUJIC CAN'T BELIEVE HIS EYES

Bless him, he's in genuine disbelief.

Scoring such a wonderful goal against Chelsea will have been a special moment for Henderson following a season where he admitted to not feeling like a captain.

As mentioned, the 26-year-old is often scrutinised for his Liverpool performances and that, alongside his injury midway through the 2015/16 term, clearly took its toll.

He told the Guardian: "I've never felt that I didn't want the captaincy and never doubted I was the right person for it.

"But there were times last season when I was very down because I wasn't playing and I questioned my contribution as captain because of that.

"I couldn't help on the pitch as I wanted to and so Milly [James Milner], as vice-captain, had to take the role on. It was a very difficult time and I was down.

"There were a lot of things going through my head and there were times when it was hard to feel like the captain because I wasn't contributing on the pitch. I feel as though I’ve come through that now.

"I'm in a much better place, I feel very confident and feel I am ready to lead this team and win things. There are no doubts about that."

Safe to say Henderson's new-found confidence shone through at Stamford Bridge.
