Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson comments on proving themselves and showing more consistency

Liverpool FC - Seeing Is Believing - Jordan Henderson

The England midfielder was named club captain by previous Liverpool manager - Brendan Rodgers, but has seen his form dip since the arrival of Jürgen Klopp.

Liverpool captain - Jordan Henderson has told Sky Sports how he feels the Reds have proven they can match the league's best sides, but they do need to find more consistency:

"We've produced some top-class performances in certain games and got some great results but in others we haven't been at that level and we've paid the price. I said earlier in the season that a lack of consistency has been our biggest downfall."

The former Sunderland man went on to say how they could have easily won their game against Spurs if they had been more clinical:

"It was a good game of football. Spurs are a very good team and we saw that but we did well and created some good chances. If we had been a bit more clinical we could have got the three points but in the end a draw was a fair result."

Henderson has struggled since the arrival of Jürgen Klopp, and his future seems to be hanging in the balance, with the Liverpool manager not ruling out the sale of his captain, as reported in The Daily Mail:

"Everything is OK in this moment but nobody in the world, maybe only Messi, is unsellable. There is always a situation. I come from a club where always the best players are picked by other teams and at the end, you have to accept a few things and always need to have a Plan B or C. If a player - let's not say Hendo but any player - comes to me and says he doesn't feel comfortable and wants to leave, style of play, more money, then you always have to start thinking. That's all I can say on this."

His performance in the game at Anfield on Saturday, however, portrayed that of a man who is ready for the fight. Liverpool travel to Dortmund for their Europa league quarter-final on Thursday and they will need their captain, in what is certain to be an intense atmosphere inside Signal Iduna Park.

The 25-year-old's season has been disrupted by injuries, only playing 24 games for his club this season.
