Despite mixed emotions about Liverpool’s 1-1 draw to Tottenham on Saturday, captain Jordan Henderson believes the Reds are moving in the right direction. The 25 year-old midfielder spoke positively of his side’s performance against second-placed Spurs, but admitted he felt frustrated they couldn’t seal a victory despite several opportunities.
According to Liverpool’s official team site, Henderson noted “We matched a very good side who are going for the title, so that shows what we can do. On another day we would have won the game. It was a good game of football to play in.”
The Reds captain mentioned consistency and finishing as two areas his side need to work on if they are to make a stronger title challenge next season. Henderson joined Liverpool from Sunderland in 2011 for a transfer fee likely between £16 and £20 million, and has found the net twice in 22 appearances so far this campaign.
Looking at the week ahead, Liverpool will travel to Signal Iduna Park to face German side Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals on Thursday, and will have a short turnaround for their home fixture to Stoke City on Sunday.
