Liverpool: Jordan Henderson set to be out for three weeks

Liverpool: Jordan Henderson set to be out for three weeks -Liverpool News

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson is set to be out of action for around three weeks with a hamstring injury, journalist James Pearce reports.

The Lowdown: Henderson picks up injury

The Reds have suffered a host of injury problems so far this season, losing key figures such as Ibrahima Konate, Thiago and Diogo Jota for extended periods of time.

Another player who is now absent is Henderson, who picked up a hamstring issue in last week’s 2-1 victory at home to Newcastle United in the Premier League.

There were fears that the 32-year-old could be missing for a long time but a new update isn’t quite as negative.

The Latest: Pearce provides update

Taking to Twitter on Monday, The Athletic‘s Pearce confirmed that Henderson would miss approximately three weeks of action:

“Jordan Henderson expected to be out for around 3 weeks with hamstring injury. Scan confirmed damage only minor.”

The Verdict: Short-term blow

In truth, Henderson could have easily been sidelined for somewhere more in the region of six weeks, given the potential severity of hamstring injuries, so this feels like a slight positive.

With an international break coming up later this month, the timeline suggests the skipper will miss games against Napoli, Wolves, Ajax and Chelsea, before returning after the internationals.

Granted, Henderson’s form this season has been poor but he remains an important figure who can help wrestle some momentum into Liverpool’s stuttering campaign upon his return.
