Jordan Henderson admits frustration after Brentford draw

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson admitted that they were frustrated by the draw against Brentford on Saturday night.

The Reds twice saw their lead pegged back by the Premier League newbies and according to Henderson, they should have taken their chances when they were 2-1 up.

"It was an intense game, we knew it would be. It's a difficult place to come. It was a great atmosphere and they made it difficult for us. To go in the lead twice and not see it out is disappointing for us.

"At 2-1 up we had one or two chances to finish the game off. It gives them that little bit of hope. That's football sometimes, we're disappointed with the result but we have to give credit to Brentford.

"We're an intense team as well but there's a lot of room for improvement for us today. We controlled it a little bit better in the second half but unfortunately, we couldn't hold on for the win," Henderson said after the game.

Despite the draw, the Reds went to the top of the Premier League after Chelsea lost to Manchester City earlier in the day. Attention for the Jurgen Klopp side now turns to their Tuesday night Champions League test against FC Porto before facing City in the Premier League on the weekend.
