‘The best thing is’ – Watch Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson gives honest reviews on Liverpool’s ‘disappointing’ Premier League opener and urges his squad to ‘improve quickly’
The ‘greatest thing,’ according to Jordan Henderson, about Liverpool’s performance against Fulham on the opening day was that his team didn’t lose.
Yesterday, the Reds struggled to establish a solid foothold in the game and were lackluster all over the field.
Therefore, praise must be given to the Championship champions from last season for their diligence and adherence to Marco Silva’s game plan, but our No. 14 has acknowledged his team ‘need to improve rapidly’.
“Yes, I think so. Disappointing, but probably the best thing is we didn’t lose the game,” the Reds captain told LFC TV (via Liverpool Echo).
“We had a couple of chances at the end to win, but overall I think we can play a lot better than we were today. So yeah, overall, disappointed with the result and the performance.
“I felt as though we looked a little bit lethargic at times, we didn’t play the way we normally do, and you get punished in the Premier League. But there’s still a long way to go and we need to improve quickly.”
Prior to Darwin Nunez’s introduction soon after halftime, it was difficult to predict where a goal would come from.
The Uruguayan had a significant impact when he joined the game, just as he did in the defeat of Manchester City in the Community Shield last week.
The 23-year-old scored our first equalizer and then contributed to our second as we earned a point and headed back to Merseyside.
Later today, when City travels to the London Stadium to take on West Ham United, they have the opportunity to gain an early lead in the fight for the championship.
Although it won’t be simple, Pep Guardiola’s team will be more motivated after seeing their major title challengers lose in their opening match.
