Liverpool captain Henderson allays injury fears

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has allayed fears over his substitution during Saturday's win over Burnley.

The midfielder was withdrawn after colliding with Aaron Lennon, but he insists he has not suffered a serious injury.

"I was all right. I was fine, I don't know, maybe the gaffer thought I was hobbling about a bit. But no, it's fine," Henderson said.

Asked to elaborate on the 3-0 win, Henderson said: On the impressive manner of the victory against the Clarets, which took the Reds on to 12 points from four Premier League fixtures this term, the No.14 continued: "I thought we did the dirty bits really well.

"We worked extremely hard defensively to win second balls, which is important against Burnley. The two strikers [Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes] are really physical.

"I thought we coped with them really well. Going forward we looked good at times and scored some brilliant goals. It was a really good performance."
