Henderson: Suarez work-rate makes it easy for Liverpool midfield

Jordan Henderson admits it's easy to be a Liverpool midfielder thanks to Luis Suarez's work rate.

Henderson felt Suarez offered much more than just an attacking threat.

"I thought we defended really well and going forward we looked really threatening," he said.

"Both Stevie and myself could get forward more with Lucas as our protection. That was the idea and I was a bit disappointed not to get a goal. I had a good chance in the first half.

"Luis is a top player but his work rate is phenomenal as well which makes things a lot easier for us.

"He was outstanding and with him and Dan up front we have so much quality but they do a job for the team as well."
