Henderson insists Liverpool aren’t focussed on breaking records

Jordan Henderson isn’t particularly bothered by Liverpool’s record-breaking form, insisting winning football matches is the only thing of importance.

Liverpool are on a club-record run of 15 consecutive Premier League wins, and their 2-1 win over Chelsea at the weekend saw them become the first club to win their opening six games in back-to-back seasons, while also setting a new club record of seven straight away wins.

However, club captain Jordan Henderson insists that such records only come as a result of winning games, which is the only thing that Liverpool are focussing on.

“Winning is important, picking up as many points and if you keep on doing that then the records will follow,” Henderson said, as per the Mirror.

“You can’t go and chase records because they will come with performances and if we keep winning. But, for us, the motivation is three points every time we play.

“Chelsea was a really tough place to come, good team, we had to grind it out, had to give everything and that shows what we’re about as a team.

“It’s important, you need character and we’ve got plenty of characters in this team to fight and see games out.

“It was tough, they put a lot of pressure on us and we just need to keep winning, keep getting three points.”
