Henderson targets better goal return

Jordan Henderson is putting in extra work on the training ground in an attempt to improve his Liverpool goal tally.

Henderson, 22, a £16 million signing from Sunderland in 2011, scored twice in 48 appearances in his first season at Anfield.

The midfielder has hit four goals in 37 games this season, but wants to improve on that total to ensure regular first-team starts.

He made his first league start since February 11 at Aston Villa on Sunday and marked it by scoring the equaliser as Liverpool came from a goal down to win 2-1.

And he has been working on his finishing with first-team coach Mike Marsh to try to ensure he ends the season with a few more goals to his name.

He told Liverpool's official magazine: "A lot of players do extra training. I tend to work on my finishing.

"I think it's important as a midfielder to contribute goals. The goalkeepers stay behind with Mike Marsh, along with a few of us.

"I think I need to improve in a lot of areas. Scoring goals is one of them. If a manager knows he can rely on a midfielder to score a few, it means he's likely to play a lot."
