Hendo dishes out some home truths

LONDON: Liverpool must improve quickly or risk getting badly beaten by their Premier League rivals, skipper Jordan Henderson has warned.
The Reds suffered a humbling 4-1 defeat to Tottenham on Sunday — the only thing worse than the scoreline being the awful defending on display by Jurgen Klopp’s men.
Harry Kane scored a brace while Son Heung-min and Dele Alli were also on target at Wembley.
Mohamed Salah pulled a goal back in between but it was not enough to inspire a comeback as Liverpool dropped to ninth in the table on 13 points, having conceded 16 goals so far — their most after nine games since 1964. “I’m sure a lot of criticism will come our way and deservedly so. We’ve got to change it quickly, otherwise you lose games and you lose them badly like we did,” the Liverpool skipper said.
“So we need a reaction quickly, we need to bounce back on the training field and in games, but like I say, I believe we can.
“We know there are things to improve and things to change quickly. I’ve got every faith that we can because we’ve got a fantastic team. But we need to work on a few things and change it quickly.”
