Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson targets further improvement on his form for the rest of the season.

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has admitted that he is not yet playing at an acceptable level, despite claiming that he has improved this season.

The energetic midfielder has caught the eye this season with some impressive displays, but the former Sunderland youngster wants to step it up another notch.

He told the club's official magazine: "I think my overall game is improving but I'm still a long way from where I want to get to. I want to carry on improving every day. Hopefully I can carry on doing the things I have been doing well and if I keep learning from the right people, then I can get to where I want to be.

"I've played quite a lot so far this season and I've been really enjoying my football. Since the manager's come in, he's helped me a lot. I think there are a lot of areas I've improved in. Perhaps the biggest would be my tactical awareness; I've made massive strides in terms of defensive transition and offensive too.

"There is huge expectation at Liverpool but that's why I came here in the first place. The best players have great expectations on them because they want to perform at the highest level every single week and they're expected to do so. That's what I want."

The Reds are currently fourth in the Premier League.
