The cake consisted of the Champions League, Premier League, the FIFA Club World Cup and the UEFA Super Cup.

Henry, who recently revealed his pride after Liverpool won their first ever Premier League title, saw Liverpool edge out newly-promoted Leeds in a rollercoaster of a game at Anfield on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were pegged back three times by Marcelo Bielsa’s outfit but the champions yet again found a way to win.

Mohamed Salah struck an 88th minute winner from the penalty spot to seal his hat-trick after Virgil van Dijk had also scored for the Reds.

Klopp will be demanding much more from his squad during their next Premier League outing when they meet Chelsea on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are threatening a title pursuit of their own after a lavish spree in the summer transfer window, spending £230million on Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell and Hakim Ziyech while also acquiring Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr for free.
