that scoring goal is not a one-man job and all players should chip in.

After a 0-0 draw with Manchester United yesterday, Liverpool lost their chance to return to the top of the Premier League table.

This was the third consecutive match that the Reds failed to score, something that has not happened since 2005!

“Well, we need to score goals to win games,”

Henderson said.

“I’m not talking just about the front three, by the way.

“I’m talking about everyone: midfielders, full-backs getting into the box, set-pieces. Everybody can chip in. We need to start doing that quickly.

“Like I say, just that little bit of luck dropping to someone or ricocheting off someone and going in, because we had good enough chances to win the game.

“The performance level I think we can be pleased with. I think we gave everything to try to win the game but, unfortunately, just couldn’t find that goal. Which we find ourselves keeping saying that over the last few weeks. That needs to change quickly.

“The performance again today was very good, we worked hard and kept going right until the end, kept pushing.

“We’ve just got to keep working hard and not think about it too much, because the quality we possess going forward is frightening. So it’s not quality, we just need to change our mentality a little bit and make sure we’re ruthless when we come in front of goal.

“Like I say, that’s not just the front three, that’s everybody that gets into the box and gets the opportunity to score. Which we haven’t said for a long time, to be honest – we’ve scored a lot of goals.

“That’s one thing we need to change quickly because today, defending-wise, everybody throughout the team defended really well. I thought some of the football was outstanding and we played some great stuff. It’s just that last little bit. Still plenty of games to go and we need to keep pushing right until the end.”
