Jordan Henderson breaks silence after Man City defeat with defiant message

Jordan Henderson maintains he and Liverpool will "give everything to change our current situation" after their loss against Manchester City.

The Reds now look set to relinquish their Premier League crown having slipped ten points behind the league leaders.

A poor run of form since the festive period has seen the defending champions fall away.

Jurgen Klopp's side have won just two of their last nine league games.

They have also seen their long unbeaten home record ended and since lost their last three at Anfield.

Captain Henderson was a driving force as Liverpool won the title last term, but he is now urging the group to stick together and learn from the challenges.

He said on Twitter : "Tough one to take yesterday. This is a time we need to stick together and get through this difficult period.

"Sometimes you can learn more from these times and we will give everything to change our current situation. You’ll never walk alone."

Henderson has had to fill in as a centre-half as the Reds battle a hefty injury crisis.

He partnered Fabinho in defence on Sunday as the hosts shipped four against City.

It was their first loss against the Manchester club at Anfield since 2003, but Klopp was at a loss to explain how they were so heavily beaten.

He said: "I saw a really good game and big mistakes. In each game, when you make these kind of mistakes, it's very likely you concede goals.

"It's easy to agree that the first half was a really good game, two sides really trying a lot to cause problems for each other, and I liked a lot I saw in the game.

"Coming out in the second half, they changed the system and we didn't move enough in midfield.

"We scored our goal and in that moment it was possible the game goes in our direction, but Alisson made two massive mistakes, gave two goals away – and then a genius situation from Phil Foden.

"The confidence could have suffered after the last game but tonight I saw a very confident team, if I'm honest. I liked the football we played. It's very difficult to explain that we lost 4-1."
