The Reds’ victory never felt in doubt at Anfield, with all three goals scored in the first half and the match drifting by in serene fashion after the interval.
The win takes Jurgen Klopp‘s men back to the top of the Premier League, for the time being at least, and they have recorded seven wins in a row to start their season for the first time in the club’s history.
Speaking to LiverpoolFC.com, Henderson was in typically focussed mood, with the captain insisting Liverpool still have extra gears to find:
“We can always improve, definitely.
“We’re in a good moment—we’ve got a good rhythm, some good performances and good results—so of course we’re confident.
“But there’s still plenty of room for improvement, certainly after today. But, overall, we’re happy with the win.
“At times they found some gaps and created some half-chances.
“It’s just about keeping going and keeping the performance level high.
“I thought the lads that came in did really well—that’s a big positive for us.”
Also speaking to the club’s official website was Matip, who didn’t always look comfortable but scored a peach of a header.
“They played the whole season well and there was no reason to change.
“I was injured and still needed some time to get in and to be on a good level, but I am on a good way and this was a good step.
“I still need some time but I am on a good way and we have a lot of games, a lot of players.
“So I hope that I can also play a few games more.”
A number of Reds squad members took to social media in the hours after the final whistle, with team unity and a historic seventh victory the main focus.
Gini Wijnaldum, however, took a more reflective view, stressing that Liverpool need to “keep this flow” as their remarkable form continues.
It is likely that Klopp makes further changes in midweek, with both Matip and Xherdan Shaqiri among those hoping to keep their places, but the expectation will be the same.
