Henderson: Liverpool Are Just Getting Started

Midfielder targets improvement on 100% record.

Check in to Swansea City vs Liverpool

Liverpool midfielder believes that the club can still improve, despite them being the only club in the division with a 100% record so far, the Mirror reports.

The Reds entered went into the international break sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League table, the first time they have done so since 2009, boasting three wins out of three.

Brendan Rodgers’ men have also yet to concede a league goal – managing to keep clean sheets in their opening day encounter with Stoke City, their away trip to Aston Villa, and their early grudge match with rivals Manchester United.

Players and fans alike are undoubtedly pleased with their strong start, but England international Jordan Henderson believes they can still do better.

“We’ve got a lot of momentum after the first three games of the season,” said the £20m midfielder.

“Beating Manchester United gave us a great boost, and it kept the winning mentality and the momentum going.

“But we know that it’s going to be difficult in our next few games, so we’ll have to keep focused and hopefully we can keep putting in performances like that.

“There’s always room for improvement and I’m sure we’ll work on that.

“But we’ve got to be very pleased with the three results. We’ll continue to keep working and keep building by working hard on the training ground.

“A lot of the lads are now on international duty, but from the people who are here, there’s a good aura about the place.

“And hopefully, when the lads come back, we can focus on our next game at Swansea.”

Henderson has been a central figure in the club’s unbeaten start, having played every minute of the action so far, and the former Sunderland man has credited Brendan Rodgers as the man who has made him a better player.

“I feel as though I’ve progressed over the last year or two,” he added. “The manager has been brilliant with me on a personal level, and with everybody else here.

“I’ve improved since he’s come to the club and he’s helped me to do that. We worked very hard pre-season and then in the games we have looked pretty solid as a team.

“The manager has ­definitely been working on that during the pre-season. The last three home games, we’ve done really well.”
