oulala - Jordan Henderson's abysmal record against Manchester United

Jordan Henderson's abysmal record against Manchester United

Stat Attack | Posted on by
Separated by just two points, the Premier League's second and third placed teams come head-to-head in English football's biggest game this weekend as Manchester United host Liverpool at Old Trafford in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off. 
It will be Jordan Henderson's 21st appearance against Manchester United, the side he has played the most times in his 10-year career. Having faced a total of 66 different clubs in the last decade, the United fixture has not been kind to Henderson as stats from daily fantasy football game Oulala.com reveal. 

Having played against United 20 times for Sunderland (4) and Liverpool (16), the Reds' skipper has been on the winning side just four times. Henderson's 20 per cent win rate against United is his worst record against any of the 31 clubs he has made at least three appearances against. Additionally, Henderson's nine defeats at the hands of United is the most he has suffered against any side. 
Of the 66 clubs Henderson has faced, he has scored against 18 and assisted against 27. However despite recording a total of 30 goals and 50 assists in his career, he has never been directly involved in a goal against United. 
Saturday offers Jordan Henderson the perfect chance to not just help Liverpool move above Manchester United to second in the Premier League, but also presents an opportunity for the 27-year-old to put right his abysmal personal record against them. Two birds, one stone, Hendo.
