Jordan Henderson: Delighted with Liverpool's start and his own form

The Reds sit top of the Premier League table after three fixtures, with Brendan Rodgers' side boasting the only 100 per cent record.

The Anfield outfit have gone four-and-a-half years since they were last perched at the summit, and the challenge now is to build on the foundations they have put down.

Henderson believes they can do just that, with confidence having soared on the back of a perfect opening which has included a 1-0 victory over arch-rivals Manchester United.

He said: "We've got a lot of momentum after the first three games of the season.

"Beating Manchester United gave us a great boost and it kept the winning mentality and the momentum going.

"But we know that it's going to be difficult in our next few games, starting with Swansea, so we'll have to keep focused and hopefully we can keep putting in the performances.

"There's always room for improvement and I'm sure we'll work on that. But we've got to be pleased with the three results."

While Liverpool as a team have burst out of the blocks, Henderson believes he has also taken his game to a new level under Rodgers' careful guidance.

He added: "I feel as though I've progressed over the last year or two.

"The manager has been brilliant with me on a personal level, and with everybody else here.

"I've improved since he's come to the club and he's helped me to do that."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
