News From Liverpool: Jordan Henderson urges Liverpool to “keep pushing” in quadruple chase

The Reds maintained their quadruple fight with a 2-1 comeback win at Aston Villa on Tuesday.

Joel Matip and Sadio Mane scored to move them level on points with City at the top of the Premier League after Douglas Luizs third-minute opener.

City can move three points clear by winning at Wolves on Wednesday but ahead of Saturdays FA Cup final with Chelsea Henderson knows Liverpool cannot give up the title fight.

Yes, keep pushing, keep going and try to win as many games as possible, he told the clubs official site.

Weve got to recover now as weve got another big game at the weekend against a very good side, so the games are coming thick and fast.

The more it goes on, the more important they are and intense they are. We are using all the squad and I thought the boys that came in were brilliant. Lets prepare now for a big game on Saturday.

Thats football and theres going to be ups and downs in a game. Youve got to react in the right way. I felt as though we certainly did that [on Tuesday], and, to be honest, the boys have done that for a long period of time.

Its not easy to win games, especially in the Premier League, and I think the boys have been incredible over a long period of time, stayed together in important moments within the games, and you get your rewards in the end, which we did.

Liverpool did lose Fabinho to a hamstring injury in the first half, with the midfielder now a major doubt for Saturdays cup final.

Jurgen Klopps side were given a scare by Villa, who remain 11th, and skipper Tyrone Mings felt the hosts could be proud of their performance.

He told Villas official site: I dont think weve ever let ourselves down against Liverpool, we always seem to come off the pitch thinking we matched them for large parts or are disappointed or frustrated with the goals.

We matched them for large parts but its not quite good enough on the night.

Of course, were proud of the effort, proud of everything that we gave, but theres still a little bit of disappointment.
