Liverpool's Henderson Confirms He's a Gamer
The next Liverpool captain showed his leadership, as he led the Reds army to a 0-1 victory in Wales to keep their Champions League dreams alive.
The 'Pool took some time to kickstart their season, but they're firing on all cylinders now.
Swansea was a must- win match for the Reds, and they did not disappoint. Swans may have pulled a double on the Red side of Manchester, but the Merseyside Reds are a different breed. They never walk alone.
However, their misfiring forwards did their usual bit of botching glorious chances:

This victory at the Liberty stadium means that the 'Pool's next fixture against Manchester United will be a battle for fourth place and a shot at a Champions League berth. Lotta dosh on the line, not to mention prestige.
So look for an old rivalry to regain an added bit of spice when on Sun 22 Mar.
