Liverpool captain Henderson: Our season deserves a trophy

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is adamant they deserve a trophy for their season performance.

Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League on Saturday after a dramatic late goal from Divock Origi gave them a 3-2 win over Newcastle.

"It is big moments every week and we have kept this race going right to the last game and you never know what can happen in football," he said.

"We just focus on winning games and we'll just see what happens. We have given everything all season.

"We deserve something at the end of it, we've just got to keep going, keep fighting right to the last minute and see what happens.

"It comes from the belief in the squad. We have great belief in each other no matter who plays or who comes on.

"Obviously we weren't happy with the result [in Barcelona], but we still got belief from the performance we put in over there so it kept us in the right frame of mind to perform again.

"It just shows the character and belief we have in the team to keep going and take it to the last game."
