Consistency Liverpool’s biggest downfall” says Jordan Henderson
"Consistency is definitely an area where we need to be better"
March 4th, 2016
Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson admitted that the Reds’ inconsistency this season has been their biggest problem.
Liverpool have managed some excellent performances this season, most notably their wins against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium and at Anfield, Wednesday evening’s emphatic 3-0 home win over the Citizens drawing many comparisons to the 4-1 triumph in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.
Nevertheless, the Reds have failed to replicate these heights on numerous occasions with their 27 Premier League outings returning eleven wins and eight draws as well as eight defeats, hardly the stuff from which champions are made of.
Indeed, Henderson admits that Liverpool’s inconsistency is an area of concern, telling reporters: “I think consistency has been our biggest downfall. Some games have been very good and we look as though we can beat anyone and other days we’ve been poor and haven’t really turned up,” he told reporters.
“Consistency is definitely an area where we need to be better. We need to consistently win games and perform in games but I think there are a lot of teams in the league like that.
“There is only probably Leicester who have been very consistent. I know Spurs have been very good of late but they got beat (at West Ham on Wednesday), Arsenal got beat (at home to Swansea on Wednesday), (Manchester) United were on a bad run and now they are doing quite well. The league has been up and down.”
