Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has hailed the team’s focus following their tough win against Burnley on Wednesday.
The England midfielder insists the win at Turf Moor proved they have the attitude and flexibility to cope under pressure.
Despite seven changes made to the team that defeated Everton last time out, Jurgen Klopp’s side came through a tough matchup, coming from a goal down to set a new club record for the most points picked up (39) from the opening 15 matches of a league season.
“We’re delighted with the three points. I was really pleased with the reaction to going 1-0 behind,” said Henderson, according to Sky Sports.
“That’s really pleasing for us as a squad, especially with all of the changes. The lads that have come in have done a great job and it shows how good the squad is.”
“We’re going to need everyone over the next few months because the games come thick and fast. We need everyone to play their part.”
“We knew Burnley were an aggressive team and they’ve got some good players. They want to win.”
“Of course, there’s a couple of tackles that could have gone either way but they’ve managed to get the ball and that makes all the difference but I thought we reacted well.”
“We kept playing the ball. If you lose your head you can pick up cards. The focus was brilliant in terms of maintaining control and creating chances.”
