Injury woes do not stop for Liverpool: next pillar drops out


The list of injured players at Liverpool is getting longer. England coach Gareth Southgate had to take Jordan Henderson to the side against Belgium in half time with a muscle injury.

The overcrowded schedule seems to be taking its toll on the Liverpool players. Virgil van Dijk is likely to miss the rest of the season with a cruciate ligament injury, while Joe Gomez was injured at England this international period. He has since undergone surgery on his knee. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson are also injured, so Jürgen Klopp does not have access to his four permanent defenders.

Mohamed Salah (coronavirus), Fabinho, Thiago Alcántara and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also out for a while. Henderson can now be added to this list, Southgate reports Sky Sports. The muscle injury does not seem too serious, but it will still be a blow to Klopp’s account. Next Sunday’s game against Leicester City seems to come too early for the midfielder.
