Liverpool star Jordan Henderson facing eight weeks out after abductor surgery

Jordan Henderson has had surgery on an abductor injury that will leave him out for up to eight weeks.

That means the Liverpool captain will miss up to eight games for the Reds, while he is out of England's World Cup qualifiers next month, too.

Henderson suffered the injury during Jurgen Klopp's defeat by Everton last weekend.

The midfielder saw a specialist in London early in the week who recommended an operation.

The prognosis is that he will be out for between six to eight weeks.

Klopp admitted it was a “massive blow” when Henderson pulled up against the Toffees.

There was a concern it is a serious issue and he is expected to miss league games against Sheffield United, Chelsea, Fulham, Wolves, Arsenal, Aston Villa and Leeds.

He will also miss out the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie against RB Leipzig and the quarter-finals if they get there.

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.
