Manchester United demolition ‘just another game’ for Liverpool – Henderson

Two penalties from Steven Gerrard and a Luis Suarez strike saw Brendan Rodgers’s men embarrass their old rivals at Old Trafford but the midfielder refuses to get carried away

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson feels that his side’s 3-0 demolition of Manchester United on Sunday was “just another game”.

Two penalties from captain Steven Gerrard and a Luis Suarez strike six minutes from time secured a comfortable victory for the Reds at Old Trafford and, although the result sparked wild celebrations from the away fans, Henderson is already focusing on Saturday’s trip to Cardiff City.

The England international has become an integral part of Brendan Rodgers’ side this season, having started every Premier League game in their rise to second in the table, and is keen to focus despite the boost of a win over United.

“It was a big win but it was just another game for us really,” he told the club’s official website of Sunday’s triumph.

“We went there trying to do the same thing, put on a good performance, get three points and thankfully we did that so we can move on to the next performance and hopefully win that.

“We knew it was a massive game but we have been brilliant of late and we felt as though we were capable of doing what we have been doing all season and have a really good chance of winning the game.

“We have just got to keep focused on what we are trying to do as a team, take each game as it comes and not get too carried away.

“That will start again against Cardiff and we will see where we are at the end of the season.”

Sunday’s victory moved Liverpool to within four points of Premier League leaders Chelsea, with a game in hand on Jose Mourinho’s side.
