Pool must learn or keep getting punished: Henderson

 

By Carl Markham

Captain Jordan Henderson admits Liverpool have to learn from their Champions League disappointment against Sevilla to avoid problems further down the line.

After conceding in the fifth minute, Jurgen Klopp's side bounced back to lead 2-1 with goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, only for a lapse in concentration to allow the visitors to equalise 18 minutes from time.

"We're disappointed with the result. We thought we'd done enough to win," said Henderson.

"The performance level was good, we reacted well from the weekend (a 5-0 defeat at Manchester City) and then we went a goal down.

"There were a lot of good things but we're disappointed, especially with the second goal. It was a quick throw-in and it's very disappointing because we keep going on about that.

"To concede from that situation was very disappointing and we need to learn because in the Champions League you'll get punished."

On the plus side, Liverpool's attacking play was as exciting as ever with the pace of Sadio Mane and Salah giving Sevilla problems.

The return of Philippe Coutinho, who one month ago submitted a transfer request in an attempt to force a move to Barcelona and on Wednesday came off the bench for his first appearance of the season, was another bonus.

He was warmly welcomed by the Anfield crowd and, despite looking rusty, his team-mates hope he will be up to speed soon.

"Massive, brilliant - I think you heard the crowd when he came on," said Henderson on the Brazil international's return. "He's been brilliant in training so hopefully he can have a big impact."

Loris Karius believes, however, they don't need to be as dependent on Coutinho as they were.

"He is a really important player for us. He can make a difference so it is really good to have him back," he said.

"We have Ox (Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain) now and Studge (Daniel Sturridge) is fit, so we have a lot of options."
