Jordan Henderson has urged Liverpool to continue their winning run of form despite the upcoming departures of several squad members.

Saturday’s match against Aston Villa is the Reds’ final home game of the season, during which supporters will honor four departing stars.

At the conclusion of the season, Roberto Firmino, James Milner, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will all depart the club.

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that 31-year-old Brazilian striker Firmino will make his first appearance in a month off the substitute bench in his final game at Anfield.

Monday night’s 3-0 victory at Leicester was accompanied by lengthy chants of Firmino’s name, demonstrating admiration for the Premier League and Champions League victor.

Henderson: ‘We Have Business To Do’

Henderson says the star merits the remembrance, but it’s imperative that Klopp’s fifth-placed team win its eighth consecutive match.

The Liverpool captain desires to maintain pressure on Newcastle and Manchester United in the chase for the top four, which he hopes to carry to the final day of the league at relegated Southampton.

Experienced midfielder Henderson, 32, reflected: “Bobby is a big part of the squad and an amazing guy,” he said.


“Of course, he will be missed along with the other lads who are leaving as well so it will be tough to see them leave,” he continued

“But the focus is always just on the game first and foremost and we will be doing everything we can to win. That is the most important thing, then whatever happens after that happens,” Henderson added.

“We want to get the three points on Saturday. We have business to do now for the next couple of weeks with two games left, then we can say the goodbyes after that,” he explained.

“We just have to concentrate on our job which is to win the next two games and then see where we are at the end of the season.”

Liverpool’s Late Run Shows Massive Potential Ahead of Next Season

Despite the fact that a number of senior players are preparing to depart, Liverpool’s victory over Leicester provided ample optimism for the future.

Curtis Jones, a 22-year-old midfielder, was one of the standouts with a two-goal performance, giving him three goals in four games.

Trent Alexander-Arnold also excelled as he moved into midfield when Liverpool had the ball and scored a spectacular goal to make it 3-0.


Despite a mediocre season that included severe losses to Napoli, Brighton, Wolves, Real Madrid, and Manchester City, the victory ensured qualification for European competition the following season.

However, Henderson, who is under contract until 2025, asserts that their current form has generated a great deal of optimism and momentum for the upcoming season.

“We have had our problems this season for different reasons, but we have shown over the last few good weeks that we are still a very good team,” he stated.

“We can still perform at a high level and win games consistently,” the midfielder said.

“Hopefully we can do that from now in the next two games and then carry that through into next season,” he said, “That will be the plan. There is a few lads going and I am sure there will be a few lads coming in.”

“So we need to be ready in pre-season which is big for us. But we still have two games left which is the focus at the minute.”
