Liverpool’s captain, Jordan Henderson is delighted with picking up three points at the Emirates stadium on Sunday.
There is no doubting that 3-4 encounter with Arsenal will go down in Premier League history as a classic. The seven-goal thriller saw Liverpool return to Merseyside with both the points and bragging rights.
The Reds were in an explosive mood in the second half with Coutinho, Lallana and Mané exploding the visitors to a 3 goal lead before being pegged bag to a nervy one goal lead which stayed in place until the full-time whistle blew.
“We came in after the first half knowing we could play better,” the captain told Liverpoolfc.com.
“Philippe got us back in the game with a brilliant goal, to come in level. Then the manager said a lot of things we needed to improve on in the second half and I felt we did that.
“We came out firing in the second half and got some brilliant goals. They started gathering momentum after their second goal.

“There are a lot of things to improve on and work on, but a lot of good things as well. We’ve got to be delighted to come to the Emirates and get three points.
“Certainly the second-half performance at times was very good, especially when we went two or three goals in the lead.
“But after that we need to manage the game better, especially when they scored the second and gathered momentum. We just need to be a little bit more street-wise there.”
Liverpool’s front three proved as problematic for Arsenal as it did for Barcelona last week. Coutinho, Firmino and Mané combined to create many chances for the Reds and Henderson is impressed by the side’s attacking impetus:
He added, “It’s fantastic. The front three and midfield getting forward was brilliant, even the full-backs were getting forward.
“Going forward, at times we were outstanding. But we’ve got to be a little bit more disciplined at times, especially myself if I’m playing that role in the team.
“There are a lot of good things. It’s hard coming straight off the field and analysing straight away because I’m sure if I watch it from a distance I might pick one or two things we did well that I thought we didn’t, and vice versa.
“Overall, I’m very pleased with the three points. We’ve now got a good week’s training again and away to Burnley next.”
