Liverpool’s victory at the weekend has been slightly tinged by the fact that, unfortunately for them, Jordan Henderson is out for some time.
The skipper picked up an injury ahead of the Leicester game and has since missed both the 3-1 win over Arsenal and the 2-1 victory yesterday against Burnley.
Indeed, whilst the Reds did not miss him from those games in the end you cannot deny how important he has been throughout this season.
The skipper has been the club’s chief pass-master and will now miss the Manchester City game, too, as well as possibly Everton at the start of April.
Jurgen Klopp revealed – as quoted by the club’s official website:
“That’s how it is. He cannot train, he for sure cannot play against City and it makes sense that he is doing the rehab.
“Hopefully he can run in the second week of the international break and then we have to see.”
Time to sweat for Liverpool fans, then, as they aim for Champions League qualification.
