JORDAN HENDERSON has admitted that Liverpool needed tonight's victory over Newcastle.
The Reds went into tonight's game against the Magpies on the back of damaging defeats to Arsenal and Manchester United.
But they erased the memories of those losses by recording a 2-0 win over John Carver's side.
Speaking after the match, Henderson reflected on the victory and claimed that the win over the Geordies was a vital one.
"We knew it was an important game for us,” the former Sunderland star told Sky Sports.
