Henderson said: “It was less than a month ago that we last met Wolves on what was a day to forget for us and one to remember for them, so the fact that we play again tonight gives us an early opportunity to put a few things right.
“The points we dropped at Molineux a few weeks ago were lost on the day and can’t ever be got back. Nor can we change the record books, which will always show a 3-0 win for Wolves.
“What we can change, though, is our own performance because the last thing any of us would want is a repeat of a display which fell a long way short of the standards that we have set ourselves.
“This isn’t about revenge. I always think it’s a mistake when the word ‘revenge’ is used in football. It is about us showing what we are about against an opponent which has shown what it is capable of.
“I have nothing but respect for what Julen Lopetegui and his players did on that day and it is because of this respect that I know exactly how well we will have to perform if we want to get a better result this time around.
“This has been a tough season for us, there is no getting away from that, but it is definitely worth repeating that it hasn’t been for a lack of effort that results have not been as strong as in recent seasons.
“Even when we lost at Wolves, I don’t think anyone left the stadium thinking we could have worked any harder – but they would have definitely believed we could have played better and rightly so.
“Thankfully, to a larger degree, this has happened in the Premier League games we have played since then. Our form is not perfect and there are definitely areas that we need to continue to work on and improve, but seven points from nine from a Merseyside derby and tough away games at Newcastle and Crystal Palace is never a bad return.
“Now we need to make the most of this improvement and take it up another couple of levels.”
Mohamed Salah has scored in his last two home league games against Wolves. Therefore, he is just two goals short of equalling Robbie Fowler’s record of 128 Premier League goals for Liverpool.
Klopp said: “If there is a club who can do it, I really think it is us.” The Liverpool boss went on to add: “It helps because it was us, so you don’t have to tell them a story from another club.
“We have a lot of stories to tell about what went really well in the last few years. History is not allowed to hinder you, but you cannot constantly rely on it. I really see we have the right mindset. Now we have to go; we have to do it.
“I really think we are ready. If there is a club who can do it, I really think it is us, honestly. All the things we achieved in the last years we achieved together.
“Nothing would have happened either without the team or without the crowd. We have a future together and we will strike back in general, but now we have to make sure that we really squeeze out of this season everything we can get.
“The obvious spots are not too far away from us and we will see what we can pick up, but there is no alternative to results. We need results, and for results you need performances.”
The Reds to take on Wolves tonight 👊#LIVWOL
Liverpool have something to prove this evening. Wolves won the reverse fixture 3-0 to end their 11-game losing streak in the Premier League.
Liverpool will be looking to turn their fortunes in front of goal around tonight. Jurgen Klopp’s side have failed to score in four of their last six league games.
Liverpool are looking tighter at the back than they did earlier this season. The Reds have kept three consecutive Premier League clean sheets for the first time this season, last keeping more consecutively between February and April 2022.
Got to love a few pre-game stats. So, here’s one for you. As it stands, Liverpool are the only Premier League team yet to concede a goal from outside the box this season.
