Liverpool playmaker Jordan Henderson knows what recent signing Mario Balotelli is capable of doing on the pitch, and he can't wait to have the imposing forward play alongside him.

After all the fuss and the drama, the Italian international finally moved back to England's top-flight on Monday for a reported fee of £16million.

"I think everybody is looking forward to working with him," said Henderson.

"He is a very talented player and a very big player coming into the club. Hopefully he can give us a big lift and play some part in the next game."

"He was in the dressing room wishing everyone luck. It was good to see him."

"Hopefully he can get a good week's training under his belt and be ready for Sunday."

After winning their first outing against Southampton, the Reds were immediately handed a reality check by the holders Manchester City with a dominating 3-1 victory.

The Merseyside outfit will be visiting White Hart Lane to face Tottenham on Sunday.
