Liverpool travel to Wembley on Saturday to face Tottenham in a game they lost 4-1 last season, but Henderson hopes for a big improvement on that result.

The Reds' dominance in the match finally paid off as Georginio Wijnaldum put his side ahead in the 39th minute after Tottenham failed to clear their lines from a corner kick played by James Milner.

Erik Lamela pounced in second-half injury time to cause a few nervous moments within a late Spurs fightback, but Liverpool dominated throughout and should have finished emphatic winners.

Liverpool were less affected by the demands of World Cup action than their title rivals and it has shown in their fine start to the season with four straight Premier League wins to sit top of the table.

Time will tell if Liverpool are good enough to win a major trophy this season but there is no doubt this squad is improving and looking stronger than it has done for many years.

"The performance was better than the result", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said. "We were that good it was hard for Tottenham". Now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again.

"I don't want to be too critical because I don't know exactly how he said it but sitting in an office and talking about football is completely different to doing the job, to be honest".

'Relentless rains' continue as Florence almost stalls over Carolinas
In Wilmington , near where the eye of the storm touched down, trees and power lines were felled and many windows were broken. Florence was moving west-southwest at about 5 miles per hour (7 km/h), with its center located over eastern SC .

The Spurs chief continued: "First of all, I want to say they deserved their victory".

"The performance was better than the result and the result is ideal", he said.

"We will see, and then we play Paris Saint-Germain-they won yesterday without Neymar and Mbappe, so they can obviously rest players in the league".

"To win titles, you need to be very good defensively, if not the very best". But we all have our 20 minutes.

"Now with the Nations League, global managers can not rest players because it is a proper competition".

Spurs won their opening three matches of the campaign but have now suffered back-to-back defeats against Watford and Liverpool. Fantastic the improvement we had.

Liverpool take on Tottenham Hotspur later today and reliable journalist Dave Maddock believes that Fabinho will return to the bench for Jürgen Klopp's side.
