A number of Liverpool supporters were fuming after a report claimed that Jordan Henderson has picked up an injury during the international break.
The Reds are currently on a two-week gap between matches, with Jurgen Klopp’s players off representing their respective countries. Henderson was in excellent form for England on Friday evening, scoring one goal and setting up another as the Three Lions won 5-0 at home to Albania.
Unfortunately, it appears as though the Liverpool captain has picked up an injury issue since then, with The Times‘ Henry Winter confirming on Twitter that the 31-year-old has been sent home “for further assessment.”
It is the latest setback for Klopp, who is already without midfielders Naby Keita, James Milner, Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott ahead of the Reds’ home clash with Arsenal in the Premier League next Saturday.
Liverpool fans fume at Henderson news
These Liverpool fans took to Twitter to bemoan the news about Henderson’s injury, the latest in a long line of fitness problems for the Reds dating back to last season.
“At this rate, our midfield vs Arsenal will be: Morton – Fabinho – Balagizi“
“I can’t do this anymore“
“Every single time we have international games one of our players what’s come back injured. Gomez, then Trent and now Hendo“
“I‘m so stressed! Why has it always got to be us!!!“
“Seriously? Just how many midfielders are left now????!“
“Oh god please no“
