Liverpool Chasing Away Goals Record

Liverpool is close to creating a new club scoring record – and Jordan Henderson is itching the fire the Reds into the history books.

Brendan Rodgers’ side has plundered 35 goals away from home in the league this season and can make it their best-ever Premier League tally with two more this weekend.

Liverpool head to Fulham on Sunday as the division’s second most potent attack on the road and with Henderson in decent scoring form.

The former Sunderland man has netted five times in the Premier League since the turn of the year, including two in the 6-0 demolition of Newcastle United earlier this month.

Henderson says extra work after training at Melwood is behind his improving record in front of goal but he believes the whole team has shown a cutting edge this season.

Liverpool struck just 23 times away from Anfield in the league 12 months ago, but the current crop is just two goals away from setting a new landmark.

“It’s always important for midfielders to get goals,” said Henderson.

“Hopefully I can keep working on that and get a few more next season.

“Scoring goals has been brilliant for me on a personal level, but I think the team has definitely progressed throughout the season and we can only get stronger and better and we look forward to next season.”

He added: “We’ve progressed over the season – we’ve played some really good football and won some really good games.

“We’re definitely progressing all the time and we’ll look to continue to do so in the last two games and next season.”
