Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Watford on Saturday wasn’t ideal, but the Reds managed tough conditions to secure the 3 points. Jordan Henderson talked after the game about what made the game so difficult.

“An important three points, we knew it would be difficult,” Henderson told post-match. ”They’ve got a new manager and we knew they’d make it very difficult for us, which they did.”

”Tough conditions, to be fair, but overall we’ve got to be delighted with the three points. A professional performance, things we can improve on, of course, but we’ll take the three points and move on.

”[The second goal] took a while, it felt like ages because of VAR again! But delighted to wrap it up at the end with a second goal.

”Maybe we could have scored before that but we kept going right until the end and got our rewards.”

Liverpool flew out to Qatar earlier today ahead of the Club World Cup.

“Well, we want to go there and win,” the captain continued. “Big games coming up, so we’ve got to recover well.

”There’s a big game Wednesday and hopefully we can do a job to get into the final on the weekend.

”Another big week for us and hopefully we can come back with another trophy.”
