FORMER Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson hailed match-winner Lazar Markovic after Liverpool’s 1-0 win at the Stadiuim of Light today.

Summer signing Markovic put his side ahead with a clinical finish, but was denied what would have been a superb second when the underside of the crossbar kept out his acrobatic half-volley.

Wearsider Henderson, who moved to Anfield from Sunderland in 2011, said of his team-mate: “He’s a fantastic player, got great potential and he’s wanting to learn all the time.

“He puts in hard work on the training field and I think you’ve seen that with the quality he’s got going forward.”
