Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson says he is pleased with the clubs start, but is not getting carried away.

The Reds are currently joint top of the Premier League with Arsenal, and have only lost one out of seven league games so far this season, and are on course to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in three years.

But the 23-year-old concedes there is still a lot to do.

Henderson told the Daily Mirror: "We're in a great position, but there's still a long way to go.

"We need to make sure that we keep our performance level high and that we're more consistent over the course of the season."

The midfielder joined Liverpool from home-town club Sunderland in 2011 for a fee believed to be worth around £20 million, and signed a long-term contract at Anfield under former manager Kenny Daglish.

And Henderson has heaped praise on current manager Brendan Rodgers.

"The manager has had a bit more time to put his stamp on what he really wants to do and I felt as though even last season, as the campaign went on, we really progressed as a team and finished really strongly," he added.

"So I think having another pre-season together and then starting the season so well, we've picked up where we left off and hopefully that can continue."

Since signing for the Merseyside club two years ago, Henderson has played 74 times, scoring seven goals. His only goal this season came in Liverpool's Capital-One cup win over Notts County back in August.
