Jordan Henderson claims that Liverpool are not getting carried away despite moving to the top of the Premier League.
The Reds reached the league summit on Sunday with a convincing 6-1 home victory against Watford, with five different players on the scoresheet.
Forward Sadio Mane scored a brace and the goals were racked up by Philippe Coutinho, Emre Can, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum.
The Merseyside club are now one point ahead of second-placed Chelsea and they also saw rivals Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham record draws over the weekend.
Henderson believes that Liverpool are yet to achieve anything yet and will continue to take each game as it comes.
“This is a very good team with very good players but you don’t get anything for being top in November. We’re just concentrating on each game as it comes, working very hard in training and then applying it at the weekend,” Henderson said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

Liverpool have now emerged as serious tittle contenders and are unbeaten in their last 12 games across all competitions.
Jurgen Klopp has now spent one full year at Anfield and his team are beginning to match his high intensity style, with forwards Coutinho, Firmino and Mane impressing in attack.
The Reds captain Henderson has equally been a crucial part of the club’s strong start and played in all 11 league matches this season.
The 26-year-old has scored one goal and contributed two assists in the league, with team-mates Adam Lallana, Can and Wijnaldum alternating alongside him in the midfield.
Liverpool have never won the Premier League since its introduction in the 1992/93 season and will hope to win their first domestic title since 1990.
