Henderson: Teams could aim to frustrate us

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson expects Premier League opponents will try to frustrate and disrupt them after their impressive start to the season.

The Reds are the most effective goal scorers in the league so far, racking up 30 in 12 games, and are second in the standings, one point behind leaders Chelsea.

Henderson believes that teams may be inclined to try and prevent Liverpool from playing their normal game by suppressing their attacking flair instead of going toe-to-toe.

"I think because of the way we started the season, teams will come and try to defend and break up the play: they'll want to disrupt our rhythm as much as possible," he told Liverpool FC's official magazine.

"But that's part and parcel of football – teams might see that as the best way to get a point, or three, against us. 

"We have to be prepared to face that scenario and when we do come up against it, find the solution to get a win. 

"It's about momentum and keeping it going by retaining the ball well and ensuring the pressure stays on them."
