"Yeah, he [Salah] told me he's going to claim all of them!" This allowed the England striker to briefly close the gap between him and Salah to four goals at the top of the Premier League scoring charts.
He brought a save from Begovic midway through the first half when it might have been more rewarding to pass to a colleague than shoot.
Asked if Salah will receive the Golden Boot Henderson said: "I think you can never keep Harry [Kane] away, he's always going to score goals, he can come up with hat tricks".
Roberto Firmino completed the job moments from full-time, cutting in from the left side of the box before slotting in at the near post.
This week Salah was the one really wanting more goals as their rivalry grows.
Unsurprisingly, given their exertions over the last 10 days, Liverpool could not summon the intensity or urgency they produced against Manchester City in the Champions League.
The Egypt international's relentless form in Liverpool's front line means Philippe Coutinho has not been missed since his January move to Barcelona.
Salah has now scored 40 goals for Liverpool this season and is seven short of Ian Rush's club record of 47 in a campaign.
That, however, doesn't appear to have put a stop to things.
The Belgium playmaker has flourished in Pep Guardiola's system, with his killer final balls and goal-scoring providing some of the most memorable highlights of City's march towards the title.
It's fair to say Harry Kane has made a few people chuckle after his recent goal-grabbing antics.
