Jordan Henderson says he loved clash with Virgil van Dijk during Liverpool 1-0 Napoli

Liverpool's Jordan Henderson

Liverpool's improvement this season has been very impressive.

While the Reds are not the attack-heavy entertainment machine they were at times in 2017/18, they now look like a side capable of winning it all.

Their 4-0 win over Bournemouth last weekend was arguably the finest showing from Jurgen Klopp's side this season, with Mohamed Salah grabbing a hat-trick.

And on Tuesday evening, they sealed their passage to the last-16 of the Champions League with a 1-0 victory over Napoli.

Salah scored yet again, with Liverpool also missing a number of chances to kill the game - Alisson Becker bailed them out in the final few minutes.

But all is looking good, with positivity seemingly coursing through the veins of the players.

Club captain Jordan Henderson was brilliant in the second-half against Napoli and he was also seen having a bit of an argument with teammate Virgil van Dijk.

However, the Englishman has now spoken about the incident and his assessment sums up what Liverpool are all about these days.

"I love stuff like that because it shows you're a proper team, and it shows you care and want to win," Henderson said, per Liverpool Echo.

"Top teams have that demand from each other.

"I was having a go at him and he was probably having a go at me! That's the relationships we've got here.

"Everything on the pitch is to help the team and afterwards if you want to speak about it you can sort it out.

"We need people demanding from each other and digging in deep when it's tough. I think we've got that and that was just a little instance of that, I'm sure it happens more often than not.

"The more of that the better for me."

They're setting such high standards for each other and it is paying dividends on the pitch for the Reds.
