Henderson: It’s more than just us and Man City

first_imgLiverpool captain Jordan Henderson insists the Reds will have more competition than just Premier League champions Manchester City this season.The Reds pushed City all the way in the league last term but saw Pep Guardiola’s men defend their title by only one point on the final day.Liverpool bounced back by claiming a sixth European title and the two sides are widely expected to battle for domestic and continental prizes again during the 2019-20 campaign.

Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? That will start with Sunday’s Community Shield between Liverpool and City at Wembley, yet Henderson does not believe the Reds can afford to be complacent about the chasing pack.”Everyone will talk about Liverpool and City because they won the league and were so good and we won the Champions League,” Henderson said. “It is easy to do that.”You have to look at the other teams. They are going to improve. There are more teams than us and City who will be competing.”But you have to respect them so much for winning the Premier League back-to-back. That is so difficult. They keep raising the bar and keep improving with the squad they have.”So, we need to be doing the same and I think we will. The players are hungry. They want more. They want to keep working hard and the manager will make sure of that.”We have great senior players in the team. We have to focus on what is ahead and keep challenging for all the trophies.”While Champions League finalists Tottenham and the rest of the top six will hope to be involved again at the business end of the season, Henderson is confident Liverpool can compete once more.”We showed we were not disheartened after we did not win the league to go and win the Champions League,” he said. “It was a big moment for us.”We can use last season as the fuel to be even better to win it this year and compete again.”We know how good City are and other teams will improve. The Premier League is so difficult. That showed last year, to play as we did and win so many games and not win it.”But we keep going, giving everything and improving, and hopefully we challenge.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more

YouTubes Notre Dame911 flub highlights AIs blind spots

SAN FRANCISCO — Internet users who tuned in to YouTube to watch live video of Notre Dame Cathedral on fire might have been surprised to see background information about 9-11 attached to the footage.The culprit: an automated YouTube system recently put in place to combat conspiracy theories and fake material that spreads in the wake of some news events.YouTube says the background information — consisting of an entry from the Encyclopedia Britannica — was mistakenly placed there by the system’s algorithms and was quickly taken down.But the incident is the latest example of artificial intelligence misfiring, and a sign that we have a long way to go before AI becomes smart enough to understand nuance and context.Barbara Ortutay, The Associated Press
