Jordan Henderson says Liverpool victory over champions Manchester United was a “great boost” as the Reds seek to continue their excellent run.

The Merseyside outfit extended their unbeaten sequence in the Premier League to 11 games courtesy of their win against the Red Devils at Anfield last Sunday.

Brendan Rodgers’s men have won all three of their top-flight outings this term, with Daniel Sturridge scoring the winner against Aston Villa, Stoke City and United.

But Henderson believes there’s still room for improvement as the Reds look to mount a serious top-four challenge this term.

“We’ve got a lot of momentum after the first three games of the season,” Henderson told Liverpool’s website.

“A lot of the lads are now on international duty, but from the people who are here, there’s a good aura about the place and hopefully when the lads come back, we can focus on Swansea.

“There’s always room for improvement and I’m sure we’ll work on that. But we’ve got to be very pleased with the three results. We’ll continue to keep working and keep building by working hard on the training ground.

“Beating Manchester United gave us a great boost and it kept the winning mentality and the momentum going, but we know that it’s going to be difficult in our next few games, so we’ll have to keep focused and hopefully we can keep putting in performances like that.

“I’ve been happy with the way the first three games have gone, in terms of my own performances, but there’s always room for improvement. There’s a few things I want to change in my own game, but I tend to keep them to myself, privately.”
