Henderson admits to being excited at the pool of developing talent emerging at Liverpool as he set his sights on establishing himself as a first team regular.
He said: "There is a lot of young talent coming through and they are so enthusiastic and want to do really well. It is a real plus and if we can just keep going and keep improving, then we are definitely going in the right direction.
"Assaidi has been brilliant, he has come in and done really well and settled in really well. He did well at Young Boys on his debut, and has done really well in training. Hopefully he can keep on improving and keep getting better and it is a massive plus for us.
"Sahin showed his class as well with the two finishes and did well throughout the game as well.
"We were delighted with the performance and hopefully we can build on that for Saturday at Norwich."
