HENDERSON WANTS TO USE DRAW AGAINST SEVILLA TO PUNISH CHELSEA

Liverpool made headlines on Tuesday night, but all for the wrong reasons in their 3-3 Champions League draw with Sevilla.

Liverpool were 3-0 up at halftime of Tuesday’s Group E clash but the Spaniards fought back after the break to come away with a point.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson wants his team to use this as a motivation as they welcome Chelsea to Anfield this evening.

“We expect big things as a team and club and with the players we’ve got we have to be winning every week, really,” he said.

“That is the pressure we put ourselves under so, when we don’t perform to the levels we should, then of course there will be criticism and of course that will hurt.

“You have to use that as best you can. I’ve been in that position a few times in my career and I’ve tried to use it to my advantage every time I step onto the pitch.

“I’ve felt a responsibility throughout my career when I’ve played and had a bad defeat or bad game, so it does affect me. But as a captain I have to forget about myself and think about the team really.

“For the weekend, it is best for the team to stay positive and keep the momentum we have sort of built over the last few weeks.

“I’m going to try and pick everyone up, which won’t be easy but I’ll try my best.”
