Jurgen Klopp has replaced Croatian defender after playing 31 minutes o and Henderson has defended Jurgen Klopp’s decision to take off Lovren.
“It is hard for us to come out and defend ourselves. It was not good enough. Tottenham deserved to win. We are a fantastic team but we need to work on some things to put it right,” Henderson told BBC Sport after the game.
“We didn’t start well. We need to be ready for the game. I know Dejan Lovren came off but it could have been any of us that came off. We got back into it but concede a sloppy goal that kills us. A disappointing day and frustrating.
“We will do everything we can to change it. We have to keep working hard. Deserved criticism will come our way. We need a reaction quickly and bounce back in training and games. But I believe we can.”
