Liverpool have great momentum after perfect start, warns Henderson

The 23-year-old is confident the Reds can maintain their current winning run and admits that beating Manchester United last time out has given the club a “great boost”

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has warned the Premier League that his side have built up great momentum after winning their first three games of the season.

The Reds currently top the table after victories over Stoke, Aston Villa and Manchester United and the 23-year-old expects their winning run to continue.

“We’ve got a lot of momentum after the first three games of the season,” he told the club’s official website.

“There’s always room for improvement and I’m sure we’ll work on that. But we’ve got to be very pleased with the three results. We’ll continue to keep working and keep building by working hard on the training ground.

“Beating Manchester United gave us a great boost and it kept the winning mentality and the momentum going,” he added.

“But we know that it’s going to be difficult in our next few games, so we’ll have to keep focused and hopefully we can keep putting in performances like that.

“A lot of the lads are now on international duty, but from the people who are here, there’s a good aura about the place and hopefully when the lads come back, we can focus on Swansea.”

Henderson has started all three games for the Reds and says he has been pleased with the way he has started the season.

“I’ve been happy with the way the first three games have gone, in terms of my own performances, but there’s always room for improvement,” he added.

“There’s a few things I want to change in my own game, but I tend to keep them to myself, privately.”
