Liverpool captain, Jordan Henderson, was content with his side’s 3-0 win over Southampton at Anfield, today.
The Reds’ midfielder was keen to ensure his teammates keep their feet firmly on the ground for now. Liverpool continued their best ever Premier League start with another impressive three points against Mark Hughes’ men.
“I thought we were good. The first half defensively we gave them too many opportunities.’’ Liverpool captain Henderson told the BBC.
“Overall it was a solid performance and a good win and we knew it would be difficult.
“It felt the first half they had a few half-chances.
“We didn’t want to give them anything and to have a clean sheet.
“Maybe we could have had one or two more but we just wanted three points on the board.
When asked about Liverpool’s seven wins in a row, Henderson highlighted the fact that both he and his teammates are well aware that there is a long, long way to go before there can be any time for celebrations.
“We haven’t won anything yet and we’ve only had a good start and there’s a long way to go. We’re not getting carried away.”
Liverpool currently find themselves top of the Premier League, two points ahead of title favourites, Manchester City. Chelsea are away to West Ham tomorrow as they battle to keep pace with The Reds and make it six from six, themselves.
