The 22 year old appears to have been boosted by Liverpool’s recent improvement in form, with a 5-0 destruction of Swansea and the fantastic effort against Zenit St Petersburg during the second-leg, winning 3-1 to level the aggregate score but crashed out on away goals.
“They were good performances and good results, unfortunately we didn’t end up qualifying for the next round of the Europa League but we gave it our best shot.
“We’ve got 11 games left and want to succeed in those games. We’ve done well of late. I think we’ve been playing some good stuff – we’re still improving.”
Whilst it could be argued that Swansea were playing an under strength team and that Zenit were already confident of brushing Liverpool aside and so opted not to put full effort into the game, Liverpool showed that they are able to achieve results as both of these were thrilling matches which opened a slight ray of hope for Reds fans, on a horizon that was getting increasingly darker. Whilst speaking to the official website, Henderson voiced his opinion on whether Liverpool could clinch a top four spot.
“We’ll give it our best shot. We know it will be difficult but we still believe we can do it. The coming games will be a good chance for us to showcase what we want to achieve.”
Liverpool will need to cut down Arsenal (who currently lie in 5th place) and their 8 point advantage to even get into the Europa Cup before they embark on their increasingly difficult challenge to get 4th place.
