Jordan Henderson expecting Man Utd, Chelsea & Tottenham to improve in 2022/23

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has warned that he expects Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham to pose a threat in the 2022/23 Premier League title race.

The rest of the top flight have been unable to live with Liverpool and Manchester City in recent years – the pair battled until the final day in both 2018/19 and 2021/22, while each also walked to the title in a one-horse race in 2019/20 and 2017/18 respectively.

But Henderson is refusing to rest on his laurels and is prepared for the competition to intensify. This summer is a first for Antonio Conte at Tottenham, while Manchester United are under new leadership in Erik ten Hag and Chelsea have ambitious new owners.

“I never think it will be just us and City,” Henderson said, via The Times.

“The other teams have strengthened. You look at Chelsea, they are strengthening, United will strengthen, Spurs have done so quite a lot so far. You look at other teams who are also going to strengthen.”

The Reds skipper admitted it was a blow to lose Sadio Mane, who has joined Bayern Munich, but insisted there are still plenty of ‘world class options’ at Jurgen Klopp’s fingertips.

“For any team that loses Sadio, it will be a big blow because he is world-class player. He is one of the best forwards in the world so it’s always going to be difficult losing him,” Henderson explained.

“But at the same time — we’ve got world class players, especially in the forward line…Luis Díaz coming, who performed phenomenally well [last season]. Darwin has come in, [Roberto Firmino] is coming back, so we’ve got world class options.

“Things move on, change, hopefully we can adapt to that quickly.”

Rennes edged out Lille and Monaco to secure a top-four finish while Nantes’ first league win since February saw them stay up at Auxerre’s expense on a dramatic final day of Ligue 1 action.

Rennes clinched a 2-1 victory against Brest thanks to a Benjamin Bourigeaud brace, seizing on Lille’s 1-1 draw with relegated Troyes and Monaco’s 2-1 reverse against Toulouse to take fourth.

Bruno Genesio’s side thus secured Europa League football for next season, while Paulo Fonseca’s Lille must settle for a Europa Conference League spot and Monaco missed out entirely.

Champions Paris Saint-Germain squandered a two-goal lead in a 3-2 loss to Clermont, meaning they finished just one point clear of runners-up Lens, who ended the season with a 3-1 win at Auxerre.

That victory allowed Nantes to finalise a great escape in their final game, vaulting Auxerre to secure safety with a 1-0 win over relegated Angers.

A second string Chiefs team kept the Queensland Reds’ season alive as the ladder leaders destroyed the Western Force 43-19 in Perth on Saturday night.

A Force victory would have catapulted the club into the quarter-finals and knocked Brad Thorn’s Reds out of the playoffs.

But the Force got stage fright as a severely understrength Chiefs side played with immense freedom and confidence in the final game of the regular season.

The Chiefs already had top spot locked up heading into round 15 and coach Clayton McMillan rested stars Damian McKenzie, Emoni Narawa, Brad Weber, Luke Jacobson, Sam Cane, Brodie Retallick and Samisoni Taukei’aho.

But, led well by All Blacks centre Anton Lienert-Brown, the Chiefs youngsters took their opportunities superbly in front of a shell-shocked Sea of Blue.

Lienert-Brown scored one of the better tries of the night when he calmly collected a cross-kick from five-eighth Rameka Poihipi to complete a raid sparked by fullback Shaun Stevenson.
