Jordan Henderson says Liverpool not happy with performance against Palace last week despite the 4-3 win.
Crystal palace were 1-0 down at half-time despite dominating the hosts then came back to go 2-1 and 4-2 up in a manic conclusion which also saw stand-in right-back James Milner sent off for a second bookable offence.
Jordan Henderson was not happy with the performance, but accepted the result was a priority.
‘Every game is massive. It’s an important three points again,’ he told liverpoolfc.com. ‘It was a tough game and not what we would want in terms of performance – we can be much better in controlling (the match).
‘You’re not going to play as well as you’d like in every single game so when you’re not flying or playing as well as you can, it’s important to find a way to win and keep going right until the end and we managed to do that.’
‘We’ll analyse the game to see what we didn’t do as well but, overall, we’ve got to be delighted again with the result.
‘There are still positives to come out of it but still a lot to improve. It’s the Premier League, it’s tough and you need to grind results out – that’s what we did.’
