Cape Town - Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has urged his team-mates to react strongly to the 4-1 defeat they suffered against Tottenham on Sunday.

The Reds' defensive problems were laid bare at Wembley Stadium as Harry Kane scored a brace while Son Heung-min and Dele Alli also found the back of the net.

Mohamed Salah pulled one back but couldn't inspire a turnaround.

Jurgen Klopp's men are now down in ninth position after conceding 16 goals thus far, the most they've let in after nine games since 1964. 

Henderson believes it's crucial for Liverpool to now respond positively, or else suffer more damaging defeats against their Premier League rivals.

"I'm sure a lot of criticism will come our way and deservedly so... we've got to change it quickly, otherwise you lose games and you lose them badly like we did today," he told the BBC.

"So we need a reaction quickly, we need to bounce back on the training field and in games, but like I say, I believe we can.

"We know there are things to improve and things to change quickly. I've got every faith that we can because we've got a fantastic team. But we need to work on a few things and change it quickly."
