Liverpool 0 West Brom 2: We must learn from shock loss – Henderson
Liverpool 0 West Brom 2: Jordan Henderson says Brendan Rodgers' side must learn from their shock loss to the Baggies at Anfield
Jordan Henderson has urged Liverpool to learn from their mistakes after succumbing to a shock loss to West Bromwich Albion on Monday night.
Steven Gerrard missed a 76th-minute penalty before Gareth McAuley’s header and Romelu Lukaku’s late strike sealed three points for the Baggies.
And Henderson acknowledged the Reds failed to produce their best against Steve Clarke’s side and were made to pay for being wasteful in front of goal.
“We’re all very disappointed,” Henderson told the Liverpool Echo.
“We had a few chances in the game but we just couldn’t take them.
“The manager didn’t have much to say after. We all know we didn’t play particularly well.
“I don’t think we passed the ball as well as we could have done. We had a lot of the ball but we didn’t create as much as we have been doing.
“It’s a game we could have won but it just wasn’t our night.
“It’s frustrating but that’s football. You have to take these things on board and learn from it.”
Brendan Rodgers’ men travel to Zenit St Petersburg on Thursday in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie, and Henderson urged his team-mates to stay positive despite their recent setback.
“We just have to keep going, keep our heads up and bounce back from this.
“We just have to stay positive and think about the next game now which is Zenit in the Europa League on Thursday night.
“Hopefully we can improve, get some better results in the league and look to close that gap.”
