Jordan Henderson has heaped praise Adam Lallana after the Liverpool attacking midfielder scored his first goal for Brendan Rodgers' side since his summer move from Southampton during the 2-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday 4 October.

Having missed the start of the campaign due to an injury, Lallana is starting to prove his worth at Anfield.

The England international was named man of the match during the Merseyside derby draw against Everton last week, while he opened his account for the Reds, following an assist from Henderson, to score the first goal against West Brom.

"Adam did well with a bit of skill coming inside, I just showed myself for the bounce pass and it was a great finish. Adam has been brilliant for a number of weeks now. He is getting his fitness back from that long injury spell he had out," Henderson said to the Liverpool Echo.

"He is looking sharp. It was a great finish for the goal and I thought he was brilliant all day. He will be a big player for us this season so hopefully he will keep doing that. He gets us on the front foot well. You can fizz it in to him and he will always take his touch forward, gets in behind their midfield and drives us on, which is very important."

After a struggling start to the campaign, Henderson believes the Reds' third victory of the season is going to be a turning point in their campaign.

The Liverpool midfielder admitted they have missed Daniel Sturridge and hopes his return after the international break can help them to keep climbing up the league table.

"This [the victory over West Brom] can be a springboard for us. I think our performances can be better but the three points was vital. This was all about the win," Henderson said.

"Obviously we've missed a couple of big players and when they come back in after the internationals it will be a big boost for us. Hopefully there will be some big results coming up and we can kick on. We have a lot of quality in the group and things can change very quickly.

"I don't think we have been poor by any means this season. You look at Tottenham away where we were very good and we were very good at home to Everton. I felt last week we did enough, we were better than Everton and should have won, but that's football and it's hard sometimes. We had to take than on the chin."
