- From the section Football
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers tells the media to stop "putting pressure" on Jordan Henderson after comparisons are drawn between him and club captain Steven Gerrard.
Gerrard is leaving Liverpool for LA Galaxy at the end of the season and Henderson is expected to replace his team-mate as skipper.
Speaking ahead of the FA Cup quarter-final with Blackburn Rovers, Rodgers also says that Liverpool should not be one win from Wembley because the iconic stadium should "just be for the final".
Listen to live commentary of Liverpool v Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup quarter-final on Sunday 8th March from 16:00 GMT on BBC Radio 5 live and this website.
