Following Sunday's scraped point at Anfield against West Brom, Liverpool's Jordan Henderson made sure to voice his appreciation for the support given by fans.

The Reds captain opened the scoring in the 21st minute only for Craig Dawson to level the score nine minutes later before Baggies defender Jonas Olsson added a second in the 73rd minute.

Support failed to waver amidst the deficit, though, with Liverpool fans encouraging their beloved side to a 96th-minute equaliser through Divock Origi.

There wasn’t to be a winner for the Anfield faithful, but Henderson insists the overwhelming support given during adversity played a large role in their comeback.

Speaking to the club's official website, Henderson said: "The crowd kept with us. Even when we were getting beat, they kept us going and we managed to get the equaliser.

"I thought we were going to drag ourselves over the line for the winner. We’re trying to create that atmosphere here even more so and the fans were brilliant.

"We’ve got to keep that going and win games here for them."

Fans were rewarded at the end of the match when Jurgen Klopp and his players lined up at the Kop end to salute and thank fans for their continued support.

Henderson, however, admitted they were disappointed not to collect all three points at Anfield.

"Overall, we’re disappointed we haven’t won the game. It was a game we should be winning at home and we didn’t do that.

"But at the same time, we kept going right until the end, managed to get the equaliser and kept pushing for a winner, but couldn’t get it over the line."

Since Klopp's arrival on Merseyside some two months ago, spirit and belief has been renewed at Anfield.

The eccentric German's passionate yet laid back attitude has somewhat reinvigorated his players, who have recorded impressive away victories against Southampton (6-1), Chelsea (3-1) and Manchester City (4-1).

The Reds face seventh place Watford on Sunday, with the Hornets just one point above.
