He started making progress after scoring a winning goal against Southampton in the last game before the Premier League’s suspension. He then came to life after the restart, scoring in a dominant display against Sheffield United before grabbing three assists in the Magpies 4-1 demolition of Bournemouth.
His stock has therefore reason with Steve Bruce, saying there is ‘no chance’ he would be leaving St James next season after reported interest from Arsenal and Napoli.

Although, they are one of the lower-scoring sides in the top half, their ability to keep clean sheets proved crucial. All thanks to Henderson, who made the step-up to the top flight with ease recording 13 clean sheets. This is the fourth-highest in the division and only three less than Golden Glove winner Ederson.
With his form, Manchester United goalie, David de Gea will have to watch his back after struggling for form.
