Henderson scored the best goal in September 2016
The captain of the “Reds” Henderson scored in the match against Chelsea on Stamford Bridge.
According to the voting results of BBC, the goal scored by the captain got 42% of the votes.
It is two times more than the goal of Granit Xhaka from Arsenal scored against Hull City. The third place earned the goal of the other “Gunner” Theo Walcott in the match against Chelsea (11%).
Henderson’s goal became the 16th goal of Liverpool’s representatives in the voting for the goal of the month on BBC since the Premier League replaced the First Division. The previous player of the “Reds”, who received the prize, was Sadio Mane. He became the author of the best goal in August.
Now the goals of Mane and Henderson will lay claim to the best goal titles of the season 2016/2017 on the version of the program “Match of the Day”.
By the way, all 10 nominees for the best goal of the season 1987/1988 were from the only club – Liverpool. That was an absolutely unique case.
