Liverpool captain Henderson: Fans key facing Brighton

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson says they must be at their best facing Brighton on Saturday.

Henderson is hoping the Reds can build on their late win over AFC Ajax in the Champions League last time out, setting his sights on helping Liverpool kick on before the winter hiatus for the FIFA World Cup.

The No.14 told The Mirror: "This is a big game for us, definitely. It'll be tough as well because Brighton are a very good side, as they've shown over the course of the start of the season.

"It is important, but it will be difficult, and we hope that the fans will be along with us on Saturday, as I'm sure they will be.

"Graham Potter did an amazing job there and they've got some great players, they're a really good team and difficult to play against, as we've found out before in the past.

"They've now got a new manager, which normally would give them a lot of energy. Players will be right at it, I'm sure of that, so we need to make sure that we are as well.

"If we perform at the level that we can then hopefully it can be a good day for us."
