It was the midfielder's ninth goal for the club - his sixth of 2013 - and Henderson has his sights set on contributing more throughout the current campaign.
"I think it's important for midfielders to chip in with some goals," he told Liverpoolfc.com. "So if I can do that it will be brilliant. But the most important thing is contributing to the team.
"It was a very important win to keep that momentum going. We've made a good start and another win takes us onto the game against Manchester United.
"We'll go into that game very confident. We'll recover well from Tuesday night and everybody will be looking forward to the game come Sunday."
