Henderson believes Coutinho deal proves Liverpool mean business ahead of vital Chelsea clash

Jordan Henderson believes the deal which has extended the stay off Philippe Coutinho at Liverpool should give fed-up fans strong conviction that Jurgen Klopp’s men will come good and what better way to back this view than by using a Comeon bonus code for all your betting options.

The Reds face a crucial Premier League clash with Chelsea tonight at Anfield as they are desperate to get their season back on track and at the same time put a spanner in the works of the Blues as they seemingly steamroller their way to the top flight crown.

It’s a chance for Klopp’s men to put behind them three searingly disappointing consecutive reverses which have all come at Anfield.

First, the Merseysiders suffered a setback to their title bid at the hands of lowly Swansea City — and then they went out of both domestic cup competitions; losing to Southampton over two legs in the EFL Cup semi-final and then a shock loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Now Henderson has rallied the fans ahead of the visit of Antonio Conte’s runaway table-toppers and asks that they look at Brazil ace Countiho’s decision to commit his future to the club as an assurance that the Reds’ fortunes will flourish once more.

He said:

“Phil is world-class in every sense: ability, attitude, character, he’s the full package. Last week he made a big statement by saying he belongs at Liverpool.

“He is as ambitious as any footballer I’ve ever met or worked with. Phil wants to win and win major titles. The fact he has committed to here is the biggest message you can get that we are in a positive situation.”

Henderson says that Samba attacker Coutinho is a leader of men but goes about his role in a quiet yet effective way. And the England midfielder adds that the challenge from here on in for Klopp and his squad is to be as good as they can be for the remaining 16 games of the campaign.

As for team news, Klopp will make a late decision on whether to field Sadio Mane after he was delayed on his return from the Africa Cup of Nations, while Adam Lallana is fully recovered from a minor knock.

After tonight’s visit of the Stamford Bridge title hopefuls, Liverpool go on the road to face Hull City on Saturday (February 4) and then welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Anfield a week later for yet another enticing showdown.
