Henderson Looks to Stay Undefeated

Stu Forster

Having played an important role in Liverpool's undefeated start, Jordan Henderson is looking to keep the positive momentum going, both for himself and the club as a whole.

From potential makeweight to seemingly undroppable, a year into life under Brendan Rodgers sees Jordan Henderson having become one of Liverpool's most important players. It's a long way away from being offered up along with cash for Clint Dempsey, but Henderson isn't worried about the past.

"It is obviously nice but I need to make sure that I'm working hard and make it hard for the manager to leave me out," he said of his newfound importance in Rodgers' side. "There are a lot of quality players here working hard every day in training to get a starting position. Hopefully I can keep working hard and playing football."

As for Monday's draw against Swansea, though Liverpool looked less effective as the match wore on, Henderson thinks it's more important to focus on how the club has continued its undefeated streak to start the season instead of worrying about not being able to make it four for four in the wins column.

"At times we controlled the game quite well and at other times they kept the ball well," he said, "so probably for the public watching it was a good game, with some good goals. We showed our mentality not to be beaten and could have won.

"We both, at times, dominated the ball and possession. At the start of the first half we moved it quite well then they came back into it towards the end. In the second half they came on a little bit more but we still had a couple of chances to get the winner.

"It wasn't to be but we're still undefeated so hopefully we can keep that going. Hopefully we can keep working hard in training and doing what we have been doing. Hopefully we can get a good result on Saturday."

Keeping the good run of results going on Saturday when Southampton come to Anfield just got a little bit harder, though, with news Philippe Coutinho needs to undergo shoulder surgery and will miss at least six weeks.
