Jordan Henderson says he is grateful to Steve Bruce for the impact he had on his career when the pair were at Sunderland - but insists there will be no room for goodwill when Liverpool take on Hull this weekend.

The 23-year-old midfielder established himself as a first-team regular under Bruce before securing a move to Liverpool in 2011.

And Henderson praised the former Manchester United defender but says his only focus is ensuring Liverpool take all three points when they visit Hull this weekend.

"I was at Sunderland with Steve Bruce, who I thought was brilliant for Sunderland and me personally," Henderson said.

"I've got a lot to thank him for but hopefully we beat him on Sunday.

"I'm sure he'll have them ready and raring to go on Sunday. It will be a very difficult game, so we need to make sure we're right on it from the start."

Henderson believes there is still more to come from Liverpool this season but insisted they will be guarding against complacency against Hull, who lie in 13th place in the Barclays Premier League.

"I think we're doing okay but we can still improve and keep pushing on," the midfielder said. "Hopefully, with a few wins, we can push even higher.

"We're trying to work on the mistakes that we make in games - hopefully we can put them right for the next game on Sunday.

"I know Steve Bruce well and he will have Hull ready for it.

"They are a very solid team with a physical presence. They will be up for it against a team like Liverpool and it certainly won't be an easy game.

"We just have to look at ourselves and make sure we do the right things.

"We are second in the league and we have to make sure we continue in the way we have started the season. We've got a big squad so hopefully we'll be able to deal with any injuries or suspensions."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
