Henderson ready for Man United test

Jordan Henderson is solely focused on the result, rather than the opposition, heading into Liverpool's final game of their preseason tour of the United States.

- 50-50 Challenge: Liverpool vs. Man United

"Because it's Manchester United, the fans and everybody else will make it a big game," the 24-year-old told

"At the same time, I think in all of our games in preseason our tempo has been right and we've approached the game well. This one is no different -- we'll approach it in the same way.

"Everybody is looking forward to it. It's always important to win games, even in pre-season, when you're getting your fitness levels as high as you can.

"Everybody is trying to stay injury-free, but at the same time you want to be winning games. Tomorrow is another big game for us, a big test, and of course we want to win."

Jordan Henderson and Brendan Rodgers face the media in Miami.

Henderson was also glowing in his feedback on all the support the Merseysiders had received during their trip.

"The support is fantastic wherever we go -- in Boston, Chicago, New York and Charlotte the support was fantastic.

"That's the same everywhere in the world. We went to Asia last year and it was unbelievable. There is a large fan base all over the world and here is no different."

Liverpool's No. 14 has jumped straight back into action for his club, having only spent a few weeks off between the end of England's poor showing at the Brazil World Cup and the start of the Reds' preseason.

"As a professional footballer, you can't afford to dwell on things," explained Henderson. "Everybody was disappointed about the World Cup, but as soon as it's over, you've got to learn from it and take the experiences from it.

"Now we're here and playing for Liverpool -- it's a different ball game altogether. You've got to move on and concentrate on what's ahead: that's the lead-up to the first game of the season."
