Liverpool learn extent of Henderson injury in latest damaging blow for Klopp

Jordan Henderson is set to miss Liverpool ’s next four league games with a groin injury in another huge blow for the Reds.

The Kop midfielder is also a doubt for England’s World Cup qualifiers next month as he could be out for around four weeks.

Henderson was forced off during Liverpool’s defeat by Everton on Saturday.

The Reds skipper pulled up with a groin injury which Jurgen Klopp admitted it was a “massive blow”.

He will undergo a scan on Monday with Liverpool hopeful of having a full diagnosis by Tuesday.

But there is concern it is a serious issue and he is expected to miss league games against Sheffield United, Chelsea, Fulham and Wolves as well as the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie against RB Leipzig.

England are due to start their World Cup 2022 qualification campaign against San Marino, Albania and Poland at the end of March.

Henderson’s injury has added to the Reds woes after they failed to win again at home this year.

He has been filling in at centre-back where Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip have all been ruled out for the season.

While Fabinho and Diogo Jota also missed the defeat by the Toffees as they battle back to full fitness.

But midfielder Gini Wijnaldum insists the Reds can’t feel sorry for themselves.

He said: “You don’t want to feel sorry for yourself and don’t want to go into the victim role.
