Lovren had put Liverpool ahead early on in the first-half, before captain Henderson unleashed a sensational, Gerrard-esque shot from 25 yards to put the visitors 2-0 up before half-time.
Striker Diego Costa did pull one back for the hosts in the second-half, but the Merseyside club deservedly took all three points to lift them into the top four.
The win takes the Reds to ten points after five games, two points off leaders Manchester City, with the rest of the Premier League set to play their fixtures this weekend.
