Liverpool's consistency is our biggest downfall, says Jordan Henderson

By Staff Reporter

Captain Jordan Henderson believes consistency has been Liverpool's "biggest downfall" and has urged the squad to deliver on a regular basis.

Wednesday night's 3-0 win over Manchester City exemplified what can be achieved.

But more often than not such displays have been followed by frustratingly inexplicable defeats to the likes of Crystal Palace, coincidentally Sunday's opponents, or Newcastle.

Henderson  reckons ironing out inconsistencies could be the key to unlocking their potential. "I think consistency has been our biggest downfall," the 25-year-old said.

Klopp has had little time to work on his style of play as Liverpool have had a midweek game virtually every week since he took over in mid-October.

That has contributed to a lack of fluency in play and results, but Henderson is convinced over time those issues will be ironed out. "I think he has got over a lot of points he wanted to get over but I still think there is a lot more to get over to us," the England midfielder added. "With the amount of games we've had - I know that's not an excuse - I would imagine he would like more work on the training pitch.

"I am sure in the summer he will have pre-season to go through more tactical stuff."
