Cape Town - Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has reminded fans of the club to not get ahead of themselves as there are no trophies handed out in November.

The Reds shot to the top of the Premier League standings on Sunday after a 6-1 thrashing of Watford at Anfield.

However, Henderson doesn't want to get carried away with the result and league position, but is determined to keep the team focused on their next set of fixtures.

"This is a very good team with very good players, but you don't get anything for being top in November," he said after the resounding win.

"It's just another game every week, like I keep saying - I know it's boring and you keep hearing us say it, but it's the truth. We're just concentrating on each game as it comes, working very hard in training and then applying it at the weekend.

"We've just got to keep going with that mentality and keep working for each other. If we do that, we'll be in a good position at the end of the season."

He added: "There are a lot of teams up there. We're just confident with the performances and the results - we need to keep the momentum going.

"In training there has been a very high level and we need to keep that going. The players that you don't see playing, that are on the bench and in the squad, are very important to us because we work very hard in training as a group and they push each and every one of us in training.

"I think that's really important throughout the season and that has been very good so far. We've just got to keep that going and keep putting on performances like that."
