Henderson: We must learn our lessons

Sunderland Echo - - Football -

Cap­tain Jor­dan Henderson ad­mits Liver­pool have to learn lessons from their Cham­pi­ons League dis­ap­point­ment against Sevilla to avoid prob­lems fur­ther down the line.

“We’re dis­ap­pointed with the re­sult in the end. We think we’ve done enough to win the game,” said Sun­der­land-born Henderson, re­flect­ing on Wed­nes­day’s 2-2 draw.

“The per­for­mance level was good, we’ve re­acted well from the week­end (a 5-0 de­feat at Manch­ester City) and then, of course, we’ve gone a goal down.

“There are a lot of good things but we’re dis­ap­pointed, es­pe­cially with the sec­ond goal we’ve con­ceded.

“It was quick throw-in the sec­ond goal and it’s very dis­ap­point­ing be­cause we keep go­ing on about that.

“To con­cede from that sit­u­a­tion it’s very dis­ap­point­ing and we need to learn be­cause in the Cham­pi­ons League you’ll get pun­ished.” On the plus side, Liver­pool’s at­tack­ing play was as ex­cit­ing as ever with the pace of Sadio Mane and Salah giv­ing Sevilla plenty of prob­lems. The re­turn of Philippe Coutinho, who one month ago sub­mit­ted a trans­fer re­quest in an at­tempt to force a move to Barcelona, who came off the bench for his first ap­pear­ance of the sea­son, was an­other bonus.

He was warmly wel­comed by the An­field crowd and de­spite look­ing ring-rusty his team-mates are hope­ful he will be up to speed soon.

“Mas­sive, bril­liant – I think you heard the crowd when he came on,” said Henderson on the Brazil­ian’s re­turn. “He’s been bril­liant in train­ing so hope­fully he can have a big im­pact now he’s back.”
