The Reds beat Swansea City 4-3 on Sunday in a scintillating contest at Anfield and although it was the defence who managed to concede three goals, the performance of the offensive players was something that sat well with the boss.
"It was an important win for us," he told Sky Sports. "We certainly weren't at our best today but the offensive part of our game, which is very strong, came out on top again.
"It was a wonderful victory for us. Swansea played really, really well. Especially when we were 2-0 up to get back into the game.
"But it's an outstanding result for us and the game typified the character of this team. We'll analyse where we can be better and certainly as a team defensively, we can be 100 per cent better.
"But part of that, you give credit to Swansea. They had some moments of real quality. We showed our strengths. We're a great team on the offence and we scored some brilliant goals today.
"We were very good in that aspect of our game."
The Swans worked their way back into the match thanks to goals from Jonjo Shelvey and Wilfried Bony but the Reds again got themselves in front when Sturridge grabbed his second of the match ten minutes before the break.
Swansea again fought back with Bony converting from the penalty spot two minutes into the second half but Henderson became the third player on the day to score a brace when he poked home from close range to give the home side the win.
