Jordan Henderson emphasis on Club's matches Importance
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson feels that the club are a match for any top team in the Premier League.
The club was recently involved in a 1-1 draw with Tottenham at Anfield. The result makes some significant changes at the top of the table, as Spurs are challenging for the title. Liverpool were expected to crumble in this game especially because they had the midweek Europa League match with Borussia Dortmund on their minds. This was not the case, as Liverpool had enough chances over the course of 90 minutes to win the game against Spurs.
Only a second-half goal from Harry Kane did enough to prevent Spurs from losing this match. They have provided a major impetus for Leicester City to extend their lead to 7 points if they win on Sunday. The gap between the two teams was five points going into the match. Philippe Coutinho Philippe Coutinho has been one of the best players for Liverpool in a disappointing campaign and he once again proved this aspect by scoring the opening goal in the 51st minute. Kane has been the Premier League’s top scorer in the last few weeks and he came up with an equaliser 12 minutes later.
The match was an even encounter with both teams having a fair share of the spoils."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. I said earlier in the season that a lack of consistency has been our biggest downfall.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,” said Henderson.
