Henderson: 'More teams than us and City competing for Premier League'

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson says there are more team competing for the Premier League title this season outside of themselves and Manchester City.

The Merseysiders narrowly missed out on their first English title since 1990 last season. A point separated the team and Manchester City. However, they went onto win European glory, lifting the Champions League for the sixth time, following a 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Madrid final.

“Everyone will talk about Liverpool and City because they won the league and were so good and we won the Champions League. It is easy to do that. You have to look at the other teams. They are going to improve. There are more teams than us and City who will be competing.

“But you have to respect them so much for winning the Premier League back-to-back. That is so difficult. They keep raising the bar and keep improving with the squad they have. So, we need to be doing the same and I think we will. The players are hungry. They want more. They want to keep working hard and the manager will make sure of that.

“We have great senior players in the team. We have to focus on what is ahead and keep challenging for all the trophies. While Champions League finalists Tottenham and the rest of the top six will hope to be involved again at the business end of the season, Henderson is confident Liverpool can compete once more.

“We showed we were not disheartened after we did not win the league to go and win the Champions League,” he said. “It was a big moment for us. We can use last season as the fuel to be even better to win it this year and compete again.

Liverpool's Premier League season starts on August 9th, when they welcome newcomers Norwich City to Anfield.
