Liverpool 'never give up' under Jurgen Klopp - Jordan Henderson
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has said his team's comeback in Sunday's 2-1 win at Crystal Palace highlighted their newfound staying power under manager Jurgen Klopp.
It took a 96th-minute Christian Benteke penalty to secure three Premier League points for the visitors, and followed other late league goals to clinch draws with West Bromwich Albion and Arsenal, along with victory at Norwich City, since Klopp took over in October.
Henderson felt the way his side persevered until deep into injury time was the decisive factor, after they had trailed to a Joe Ledley goal and had James Milner sent off. That trait, he added, had been one instilled by Klopp.
"It was a tough game, especially in the first half when it was a battle," Henderson told the club's official website.
"The second half didn't start well and we conceded a goal, but from then I thought we grew in confidence, grew throughout the game and in the end I thought we deserved the three points with the chances we created.
"It shows that we never give up and we always go right until the end, which the manager has drummed into us. Since he's [arrived], I think that's been one of the big things for us, to keep going right until the end no matter what the circumstances are.
"I felt as though we did that, even when we went 1-0 down and [down to] 10 men, we kept going and we got better as the game went on with the ball. We were moving it quicker, created chances and, for me, we deserved to win."
The midfielder said that momentum was building for the Reds after what was their third league win in succession, which followed a convincing 3-0 defeat of Manchester City four days earlier and the 6-0 rout of Aston Villa on Feb. 14.
"It was a good performance from us in midweek and it gave us a lot of confidence," he said.
"Coming here, we felt as though we could win the game."
