Liverpool dealt another injury blow as Henderson sidelined for several weeks

By | February 23, 2021

Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson could be sidelined for several weeks following to the groin injury he sustained against Everton, according to the reports.

The 30-year-old went down with the adductor problem on the half-hour mark of Saturday’s Merseyside derby at Anfield – a game that Jurgen Klopp’s side went on to lose 2-0 in the absence of the makeshift defender.

Klopp revealed at his post-match press conference that the injury “does not look good” and England international midfielder is believe to have had a scan on it today.

While the Merseyside Reds are yet to confirm the extent of Jordan Henderson’s problem, the Daily Mail states that the Reds are preparing to be without their skipper for several weeks.

As a result, Henderson will likely miss the second leg of  the Merseyside Reds last-16 Champions League showdown with RB Leipzig – a tie that Jurgen Klopp’s side managed to win 2-0.

The Premier League champions already have Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez believed to be out for the 2020/21 campaign, while Fabinho and James Milner are also struggling with their own injury crisis.
