Jordan Henderson sat out of Liverpool’s 1-0 defeat to Burnley on Thursday night due to an alleged muscle strain.
Pearce reveals all
This came from The Athletic journalist James Pearce, who revealed that the 30-year-old’s setback is only “minor” so fans should expect to see him back sooner than expected.
Before the XI was announced on Thursday, activity was sparked on social media when Matt Critchley revealed that there was more injury news looming – on the back of the lengthy list of players already in the Anfield treatment room.
Jurgen Klopp then explained that Henderson “felt a little bit” before the game (cited by Liverpool Echo) and stressed that it was not severe.
The England international’s presence in the middle of the park was a huge miss as Liverpool’s 68-game unbeaten home run in the Premier League came to an end.
Transfer Tavern Verdict
The saying “every cloud as a silver lining” hits home here, as the fallout from the mid-week defeat continues.
While he may not be ready for Sunday, Pearce’s update suggests there is a chance that he could be back in time for the trip to Tottenham – or West Ham at the latest.
