Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson: Cup final defeats toughened us up

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson says their Cup final setbacks built their resolve as they prepare to win the Premier League title.

Henderson - who is set to become the first Liverpool skipper since Graeme Souness in 1984 to lift the title and the European Cup.

He told Liverpool's official website: "That was a big factor.

"All of those things you sort of learn from and it gives you even more ­hunger to put things right and improve.

"Every time we have faced that adversity we have bounced back in a really good way.

"It was just a case of continuing to do that and we knew the time would come where we'd manage to win something. Thankfully it came last year."
