Fan footage makes Jordan Henderson's wonder goal vs Chelsea look even better

Football News

Jordan Henderson has been the object of ridicule amongst Liverpool fans at times this season, but the England midfielder was the hero of the night on Friday as his wonder goal helped Jurgen Klopp's side to an impressive 2-1 win over Chelsea.

Picking the ball up around 30 yards out, Henderson took one touch to open up his body before curling in a truly spectacular effort that left Thibaut Courtois helpless in the Chelsea goal.

The incredible finish was, obviously, caught from all angles by the Sky cameras during Friday Night Football. However, now a new angle of the goal has emerged courtesy of fan footage from the Stamford Bridge stands and it highlights just what a special strike it was.

The video comes courtesy of the Twitter account @MailkDelight and gives a whole new context to a finish that will surely be in contention for goal of the season come the end of the Premier League campaign.

Somehow watching the ball curl in from the perspective of a fan in the stands makes it look even better than when you see it in magnificent HD.

The footage also captures the truly stunned reaction of the thousands of Chelsea supporters as Henderson and his teammates sprint away to the half way line to celebrate.

The midfielder won't score many better than that in his career and, given his inconsistent start to the season, he will surely be watching it on repeat for some time yet.

"I had a good feeling going into the game," Henderson said after the 2-1 win for his side.

"We knew it would be difficult as Chelsea are a good side but I thought we defended well and deserved the three points.

"It was about time I got a goal but I always say the most important thing is the three points."

Henderson's screamer was certainly a strike worthy of winning any game and, although Diego Costa did pull one back for Chelsea on Friday night, it proved to be the decisive goal.

Liverpool will be hoping their successful trip to west London spurs them on to bigger and better things in the weeks to come.

With victories already over Leicester City, Arsenal and Chelsea this season, there is a real optimism around Anfield right now.

Goals like the one the fan caught on camera last night will only improve the mood further.
