Jordan Henderson delighted with Burnley win and plays down injury concerns

Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson said he was feeling fine after the win at Burnley despite leaving the pitch with a suspected injury with 20 minutes remaining.

Henderson was speaking after The Reds’ impressive 3-0 win at Turf Moor on Saturday evening. The captain was taken off for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain following a collision with The Clarets’ Aaron Lennon in the second half.

However, Henderson insisted he was feeling fine after the game and that there were no lasting injury concerns.

“I was all right. I was fine, I don’t know, maybe the gaffer thought I was hobbling about a bit. But no, it’s fine.”

Discussing Liverpool’s performance, Liverpool’s number 14 commented on how The Reds coped with the physical threat posed by Sean Dyche’s Burnley side.

“I thought we did the dirty bits really well.

“We worked extremely hard defensively to win second balls, which is important against Burnley. The two strikers [Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes] are really physical.

“I thought we coped with them really well. Going forward we looked good at times and scored some brilliant goals. It was a really good performance.”

Saturday’s victory set a new club record of 13 consecutive league wins for Liverpool.

“We’re not setting them [records] for anyone else, we’re setting them for ourselves. That’s what we want to do.

“We want to win every week, we want to perform every week and that’s difficult because there are so many good sides in the Premier League and in Europe. It’s really hard.

“Again, for us, it’s game by game. We come up against different tests each week and it’s about giving everything every time we go onto the football pitch and we will see where we are at the end of the season.

“For me, it’s just about concentrating on what we need to do. We have been very mature in our performances, especially away from home.

“We want to continue that form, keep doing the right things, keep working hard as a team. If we do that, we can put on performances like that.”
