Henderson expects more

Liverpool new boy Jordan Henderson is confident both he and the team will get even better.

The £20million summer signing is starting to find his feet at Anfield and opened the scoring in an impressive 3-1 win over Bolton on Saturday which took the Reds - at least temporarily - to the top of the Barclays Premier League and underlined the progress the club are making under Kenny Dalglish.

Henderson told LFC TV: "Scoring for Liverpool, especially your first goal, means a lot - you could see that from my celebration. But the main thing was the team performance, I thought we were brilliant throughout the game. I've worked hard and got my head down but I think I can do a lot better, I think there's still a lot more to come."

He added: "I just need to focus on what I need to do, keep working hard in training and hopefully that will come through on the pitch."

Fellow new signing Charlie Adam also got on the scoresheet after Martin Skrtel had doubled the lead with a powerful header.

Another summer buy, Stewart Downing, also shone while the outstanding Luis Suarez orchestrated most of the slick Reds' attacking play.

Henderson added: "A lot of players have bedded in well - like Charlie - and Jose (Enrique) and Stewie on the left-hand side have been brilliant.

"We're playing some good stuff at the minute, we've been working hard on the training pitch and it came off. We just need to carry on doing that, carry on working hard and hopefully we can keep performing like that."

Liverpool look set to add further to their resources this week by completing the signing of Uruguay defender Sebastian Coates.

The 20-year-old, named best defender at the recent Copa America, was at Anfield to watch on Saturday after the Merseysiders agreed a deal with his club Nacional.
