Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson believes that his side are capable of keeping pace at the top of the Premier League this season.

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has declared that his side are capable of keeping pace at the top of the Premier League this season, if they maintain a consistent start.

The Reds have been beaten just once in eight matches this season, amassing 17 points to sit third in table early on.

He told The Mirror: "Hopefully we will carry this good start to the season onwards. There is a long way to go so we will definitely just be keeping our feet on the ground and keep working hard in training.

"Come the end of the season, if we can keep our consistency going and playing the way we have, we will be okay. At the moment it looks pretty wide open at the top, but you never know how it's going to turn out.

"Things can change at any time so we have just got to concentrate on ourselves and make sure we put in good performances every week."

Brendan Rodgers's side came from behind twice in their most recent encounter, earning a 2-2 draw at Newcastle United on Saturday, thanks to strikes from Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge.
