Jordan Henderson warns Liverpool title rivals after Burnley victory

Sun 22 August 2021 | 9:06

Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane scored either side of halftime to help Liverpool beat Burnley 2-0 in front of a sell-out audience at Anfield on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side lost six

 straight home games between January and March in an empty Anfield last season. However, a packed Anfield gave 

Liverpool an easy home victory

 and Henderson believes the return of supporters will be a huge boost.

Asked whether the hosts had to make opposition teams fear visiting Anfield, the Reds skipper told his post-match interview: 

“Yeah, always. Always Anfield people will not like to play, I’m telling you now.

“Without a crowd it’s a totally different game, football was totally different last season with no crowd – not only at Anfield but in general. Now we’ve got the fans back it’s a different ball game.

“And hopefully we can keep our fortress, if you like, and teams won’t like coming here. We’ve got to make it difficult every time they do.”

“Burnley are a good side, they make it difficult – we knew that before the game and they certainly did that with the set-pieces and long balls in behind.

“But I thought overall we dealt with it quite well and we could have scored more goals, if we’re being honest.”

 

On 

Diogo Jota

, who now has scored 21 Premier League goals for Liverpool, Henderson added: 

“He has got the magic touch.

“Around the box he’s lively and he manages to make the right runs. And when he gets in front of goal he normally scores. He has been outstanding since he has come back and hopefully he can continue.”
