Henderson lauds 'incredible' Liverpool teammates after Aston Villa victory

Jordan Henderson was full of praise for his Liverpool teammates following Tuesday's hard-fought win over Aston Villa.

Sadio Mane's second-half header proved the difference as Liverpool kept in touch with league leaders Manchester City.

"The boys have been incredible for a long period of time and tonight was no different," Henderson said. "We knew it would be a tough game coming here against a good team and we knew there would be tough moments but it is about digging in, keeping going and finding a way to win and the boys were incredible again tonight and we got the three points.

"It was a bit frantic and as the game went on I felt we did that [got more control], scored a couple of goals and overall it was a good performance.

"Sadio Mane's performances have always been incredible. The amount of work he does for the team off the ball, defending at the end and but he has the quality in and around the box. It was an incredible finish and he gets us the three points.

"It was always going to be tough and we have to keep going. We're in the same position as we were before the game. It was a big game and another three points. We concentrate on what we need to do. It is another big game at the weekend, the FA Cup final and we have to recover for that. It is out of our control [in the Premier League], we do not need to waste energy on that."
