Jordan Henderson feels Liverpool made their point against Newcastle

Luis Suarez's bite on Branislav Ivanovic ensured the club were in the spotlight all week and Henderson was happy to see them put all the bad news behind them with an impressive 6-0 rout.

"It was important that we finished the week on a high," said Henderson, who bagged a brace at St James' Park.

"It was a bit chaotic during the week with the whole situation going on. But the players handled it brilliantly and we put on a great performance.

"We were at them straight from the off and we scored some good goals so we are over the moon.

"We've got a lot of good players here and now we just want to keep winning and hopefully finish the season on a high.

"I still feel I can improve in some areas but I'm enjoying my football at the moment.

"I've just got to keep working hard and just keep doing what I'm doing and help the team do well.

"It's always nice to score goals and to score at St James' makes it that little bit sweeter. Hopefully I can carry on doing that now.

"It was a brilliant pass from Daniel to find me for my first goal. When you are through one-on-one you might think you will shoot yourself but he saw I was in a better position and he gave me the tap in.

"It was nice to repay him with a similar situation in the second half when Daniel scored."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
