Liverpool newbie targetting glory

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has stated that the club are desperate to win the Carling Cup and end their trophy drought.

The Anfield club have not lifted silverware since winning the FA Cup under Rafa Benitez back in 2006, but progressed through to the Carling Cup quarter finals in midweek with a 2-1 win over Stoke at the Britannia.

Despite most clubs putting the league and European competition first, the England under-21 star feels Liverpool should give this cup their full attention.

“It’s been a long time without a trophy for the club, but we’re just concentrating on winning every game and getting that winning mentality back,” the ex-Sunderland man told Mirror Football.

“We’re quietly confident. We’ll just keep looking forward to every game, keep building the team spirit and hopefully we’ll keep putting in performances like we did in beating Stoke.

“We’re not bothered who we get. We’ll take whoever we get and then focus on playing West Brom in the league [on Saturday].

“It will be a difficult game, but we’ll go into it with confidence and we need to keep building on the progress we’ve made,” he concluded.

The draw for the next round will be made on Saturday, with Manchester United, City, Arsenal and Chelsea all still in the mix.
