Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was pleased they continued their winning habits when they played Wolverhampton on Thursday night.

The Reds captain said they knew it was 'going to be a difficult' game against Nuno Espírito Santo's Wolves.

Henderson broke the deadlock early in the game to put the Premier League leaders infront before Raul Jimenez responded for the homeside six minutes into the second half, but Roberto Firmino eventually sealed the three points with six minutes to go as Liverpool registered their 22nd win in 23 league games.

Speaking to BT Sport after the thrilling encounter at the Molineux Stadium, Henderson said: "You know it's going to be difficult. Wolves are a good team and make you work. It's an intense game but we kept going and kept fighting.

Solskjaer reflects on Man Utd loss to Burnley.

"We defended well. The big man at the back was brilliant again and the keeper. We had chances too so that's something we want to work on - put the game to bed quicker.

On his headed goal, the skipper replied: "That could be the first one! I've been getting in the box on corners recently. Thankfully I managed to get something on it and it went in.

On an unbeaten season: "You're probably bored of me saying it but It's just about the next game. I want to keep going. Every game is the biggest of the season. We have the FA Cup game on the weekend. We need to keep bulding on what we have achieved so far."
