Liverpool’s midfield dynamo Jordan Henderson has declared that the display against Arsenal at the weekend shows that the Reds are getting closer to their best.
The Reds have struggled since the start of the season, failing to match up to the displays that they put together last season in the league.
Their performances last season saw them mount a surprise push for the Premier League crown in the latter stages of the campaign, ultimately finishing second in the league.
They have not matched those excellent performances, with the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona having a significant impact on their style of play.
The injury suffered by Daniel Sturridge has also not helped them, with the England international missing out on a significant chunk fixtures.
They managed a late 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Sunday, however, controlling the game, and Henderson believes this symbolises a return to more impressive up tempo tactics.
Henderson said: “The overall feeling with everyone is much better.
“The intensity is there in getting the ball back, pressurising high up the pitch to get it back and the passing and moving forward and penetration was good so hopefully we can carry that on and pick up more points.
“The performance level is getting better and back to the level we know we can play at, with the intensity returning and everyone working to get the ball back and getting forward we are having real penetration behind.
“It has been frustrating at times that we have created so many chances but at the same time it is pleasing our performance levels are much better.
“We just need to back that up with results.”
