Jordan Henderson urges Liverpool to fight to start picking up points

The Reds were beaten 1-0 by Manchester United in the Premier League last time out.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has urged his side to continue fighting until the end of games to start picking up points.

The Reds were beaten 1-0 by Manchester United last time around in the Premier League, despite having dominated for large parts of the game.

That loss was a big blow to their hopes of finishing in the Champions League places this season, with them now sitting eight points behind Tottenham Hotspur in fourth.

With 16 games left and the unpredictable nature of the league this season however, they are far from out of the race, and Henderson has urged them to keep fighting to make the top four.

"We have to keep going right until the very end and see what happens,” he told

“Like I have always said, whether you are in the mix or you are not, you have to take each game as it comes.”

"As players we just have to give everything for now and try and win as many games, put in as many performances as possible.”

If Liverpool are to push towards a Champions League place this season, the January transfer window is sure to play its part.

The Reds have problems at both ends of the pitch, with the defence having continued to be a problem for the side while they are sorely lacking a goalscorer at the other end of the pitch.

They have already made moves to fix one of those problems with the signing of Steve Caulker and could be busy in trying to fix their striker issue in the rest of the window.

If they can, their can Champions League hopes would be handed a major boost in the second half of the campaign.
