Henderson: ‘Now finish Roma off’

Jordan Henderson warned Liverpool still have to “finish them off” at the Olimpico after a 5-2 first leg win over Roma.

The tie had been over at 5-0, but Edin Dzeko and a Diego Perotti penalty means the Giallorossi can go through with a 3-0 victory – something they already achieved in the Champions League quarter-finals against Barcelona.

“It felt as though we were in full control, but we basically gave them two goals, you can’t do that in the Champions League. At the same time we played well, we will go there with a three goal advantage,” the captain told BT Sport.

“Overall we have got to stay positive. We knew it would not be easy tonight, we know it will not be easy there. It will be a challenge, but one we will look forward to and one we will hopefully finish them off.”
