Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson has revealed his side are enjoying the thrills of the title race against Manchester City.

With bitter rivals Manchester United next in line on Sunday, Henderson acknowledges his side cannot afford any slip up in the race.

But the Reds skipper has brushed aside any form of fears despite the fact they’ve not challenged in recent years.

The 28-year-old told the Mirror: “There are no free swings when you play for Liverpool and nor should there be.

“No one here wants to be the underdog or the outsider – all of our team want expectation always because it means you’re performing at the highest level.

“One place that discussion has not happened is at Melwood. There’s no need to prioritise so we don’t.

“We have to have the attitude in each and every game that the priority is to win. It’s that simple. If you give yourself an excuse you’ll end up with nothing. We look for and make no excuses. Ever.”
