Watch: Pickford makes world-class save to deny Henderson’s volley – planet football


Everton arrived at Anfield on Saturday night in search of their first away win against Liverpool since 1999 – and Jordan Pickford was certainly doing his part.

After Richarlison gave the visitors an early lead with an emphatic finish, the Reds started to develop in the game, but England’s number one was equal to whatever they threw at him.

His best moment came after Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross was only half-erased by Ben Godfrey, with the looping header falling nicely for Jordan Henderson.

The Liverpool captain was eager to take him early, connecting perfectly with the falling ball, and his shot seemed destined to nestle in the lower corner.

But Pickford had predicted exactly where the ball would go, leaping through his goal, hyper-extending his limbs and flipping him around the post for a corner.

He’s taken a lot of sticks this season, but there’s no denying it was a world-class save for the Everton man.
