Henderson admits Liverpool players are praying for a title race ‘miracle’

Jordan Henderson has admitted that Liverpool’s players are praying for a title race ‘miracle’ tonight.

Jurgen Klopp’s side returned to the top of the Premier League with a 3-2 win at Newcastle on Saturday night, but will be consigned to runners-up should Manchester City win their remaining two fixtures.

City host Leicester at the Etihad on Monday night, with Liverpool fans hoping former boss Brendan Rodgers can do their side a favour in their pursuit of a first league title in 29 years.

Speaking ahead of the game, Reds captain Jordan Henderson admits his side will be praying for an upset.

“The lads will watch Monday’s game and, yeah, pray for a miracle,” Henderson told reporters.

“I’m sure Leicester, who are a great team, will go and give everything. Will I send Brendan a text? No. Well, maybe. I’ll think about it.

“City are a great team but so are we. Whoever gets the title will deserve it. We couldn’t have done any more, we can’t have any regrets.

“It’s going to the last game and we need to finish on a high at Anfield and pray that something, a miracle, can happen.”
