Liverpool have rarely failed to win this season. Only on four occasions have the first team not won during this campaign. Despite suffering a recent defeat, Jordan Henderson is confident there is a ‘simple’ reason Liverpool will bounce back.
The Reds aren’t too accustomed to tasting defeat, it is not a taste they’ll be looking to acquire.
Last week we saw Liverpool fall to an unlucky 1-0 loss at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Atletico Madrid went ahead after just four minutes when Saul Niguez was in the right place at the right time to fire home from close range following a ricochet off the helpless Fabinho.
Diego Simeone put on a defensive masterclass thereafter with the hosts refusing to let the Champions of Europe pass.
Jordan Henderson is confident that Liverpool will bounce back, he told Liverpoolfc.com:
“We’ve had setbacks and adversity within games and we’ve reacted in the right way…We haven’t lost that many games as a club recently, but when those defeats have come we’ve reacted in the right way.
“I think the reason for that is quite simple: we don’t make anything bigger than it needs to be. We view every setback as a problem that has a solution. As a group our culture is: find that solution.”
What RTK has to say
We wouldn’t expect anything less from our skipper.
This Liverpool have become so unstoppable because of they are the Mentality Monsters. In circumstances that would see other sides wilt, such as being a goal down with only a minute to go, we turn it around – see the two last gasp strikes against Aston Villa.
With Liverpool facing a monumental task in penetrating the Atletico Madrid defence, we can expect The Reds to go into the game calm, collected and composed and with their minds fully focused on the task in front of them. We can expect them to, in the skipper’s words, react in the right way.
