The Reds were 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League when the programme was halted last month.

Henderson told Sky Sports News: “I feel as though that’s something the manager started to instil in the squad when he first came, right from the beginning.

“I can remember him talking about never stopping and changing our mentality in a game. Always keep going, no matter what the score, right to the very end.”

Henderson cited the fightback from 3-1 down to win a Europa League match against Klopp‘s former club, Borussia Dortmund, 4-3 in 2016.

The midfielder continued: “Look at games like Dortmund, coming back like we did, and little games in the Premier League that people might not have picked up on.

“I think it’s a progression over a few years. This season has been massive, the consistency of it, it’s part of our identity that no matter what happens in a game we never stop and change our mentality until the game’s finished.”

Indeed, as Henderson mentions, Liverpool have shown their mentality in abundance this season, including key victories away to Aston Villa and Crystal Palace which were earned late on.

 

Henderson added that players are training and in touch with each other due to the absence of first-team training sessions and matches.

He explained: “We’ve been given our own programme to do, to keep things ticking over. And we’re staying in contact.”
