Jordan Henderson has warned Liverpool that they must be much more ruthless.

The Reds were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw with Spartak Moscow in their second Champions League fixture on Tuesday night.

Liverpool were easily the more dominant team but Jurgen Klopp’s side couldn’t turn an impressive performance into three points.

The Merseyside outfit conceded a 20th-minute goal after Loris Karius made a disappointing attempt to stop Fernando’s free-kick in Russia.

Philippe Coutinho equalised in impressive style to score his first Champions League goal on his second start of the 2017-18 season.

However, Liverpool were unable to score a second goal despite registering a further 15 attempts on goal in the Champions League clash.

The Reds have only managed to win one of their last seven games in all competitions to leave Liverpool off the pace in the Premier League and the Champions League.

Liverpool skipper Henderson admitted that the Reds need to finish teams off after a frustrating few weeks for the Merseyside club.

“I thought we defended well for the majority of the game and created chances – but we’ve just got to finish teams off and be more ruthless,” Henderson told BT Sport.

Liverpool will make the trip to Newcastle United in their next Premier League game at St James’ Park on Sunday.
