Premier League Champion Alan Shearer is selecting his team of the season so far.
The competition's all-time top goalscorer will go through position by position, starting with the goalkeeper.
"The Manchester United loanee has kept 10 clean sheets and his bravery and confidence belie his 23 years. He is a star in the making."
Among goalkeepers aged 23 or under this season, Henderson has the joint-highest number of clean sheets across Europe's top five leagues.
Henderson ranks third in the Premier League for Opta's Goals Prevented metric. It looks at the quality of on-target shots a goalkeeper has faced and shows that Henderson has conceded eight goals fewer than expected.
