Liverpool urged to move on after Brighton setback by captain Henderson

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has urged his side to move on after their weekend setback against Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Reds were held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton in a game that was marred by a series of VAR decisions and according to the Englishman, while the draw was frustrating for his team, they needed to move on.

"Very frustrating, especially the way it's happened in the last couple of minutes. Hard to take. It feels unfair at this moment in time and very frustrating, but you've got to move on and get on with it. That's the decision that was made, even though I don't think it was the right decision by a long way. But it is what it is. We move on and we keep going.

"I don't think it affects us. If anything, it makes us stronger as a team. When you are going through difficult periods – whether that would be performance, results, whatever it is, and at this moment in time it's probably injuries – it makes the group even more together and stronger.

"We just need to adapt and give everything for the games coming up and try to recover and get players back fit as soon as possible,” Henderson told the club’s official website.

In the game, Liverpool had two goals ruled out for offside, and Brighton got a point through an injury-time winner, which was from a VAR-given penalty.
