Jordan Henderson revels in Reds' win

Jordan Henderson believes Liverpool have sent out a message of intent to the rest of the Premier League after Sunday’s 5-0 victory at Tottenham Hotspur.

Usher: Win can be a watershed

Henderson scored in an outstanding individual performance as the Reds recorded their biggest ever victory at White Hart Lane, with Luis Suarez getting two goals and Jon Flanagan and Raheem Sterling one each.

The win moved Liverpool back into second place, and they have reduced the gap between themselves and leaders Arsenal to just two points.

It also came without two of their most influential players, as captain Steven Gerrard sat the game out because of a hamstring injury while striker Daniel Sturridge was missing with an ankle problem. Both players will be out until January.

Midfielder Henderson, 23, told the Liverpool Echo: “From start to finish we played very well. It’s a very difficult place to come and they’ve got some very good players, but we were confident and we came here and played our football.

“We knew what we needed to do and knew that if we did that there would be a positive outcome. We pressed really well as a team and showed no fear to get on the ball. We played some great stuff and scored some fantastic goals.

“It wasn’t just a couple of players -- I thought everyone was outstanding.”

Before the trip to North London, Liverpool had gone four away league games without a win, picking up just two points in the process.

Although Liverpool have been consistently impressive at Anfield, where they have won seven out of eight league games this season, manager Brendan Rodgers had called for an improvement on their travels.

Henderson said: “One thing that we’ve talked about is our away form. At home we’ve been pretty good, but away we’ve been a bit disappointed with our performances.

“To come here and put on a great performance and get a great result against a team like Spurs will do the team’s confidence the world of good and it sends out a message. Now we’ve got a difficult home game against Cardiff coming up. That will be tough but if we do what we have been doing then we shouldn’t have a problem.

“We can’t ease off, we have to keep working hard in training, and keep kicking on.”

Liverpool have won three league games in a row since losing 3-1 at Hull on Dec. 1, and have scored 14 goals in doing so.

Henderson’s volley at White Hart Lane was his second strike of the season, and the England international is keen to contribute more.

He added: “It’s one area where I know I need to improve. I know I need to chip in with more goals. It was nice to get one today and hopefully I can keep getting in the right areas and keep finishing them off.

“When you’ve got control of the game like we had, you want to keep the ball moving and kill them with the ball. We could have got even more goals but we’re happy with five.”

In Gerrard’s absence, top scorer Luis Suarez captained the team at Tottenham -- completing a significant turnaround for a player who publicly stated he wanted to leave Anfield during the summer.

Henderson said: “The captaincy didn’t change Luis at all. Luis is a winner and a leader whether he has got the armband or not. Everybody respects him and looks up to him. He was outstanding again.

“He’s an unbelievable player. He works his socks off and he’s a pleasure to play with.

“Stevie and Daniel Sturridge are massive players for us, and we do miss them because they do so much for the team. But with this result we’ve shown our depth. We have other fantastic players that came in and did well. If we can keep playing like that then we will keep going forward.”
