With Liverpool facing a trip to Watford on Monday, the punters propping up the bar are desperately hoping their beloved Reds improve on last season’s showing at Vicarage Road.
Having lost 3-0 to the Hornets last season, Jurgen Klopp’s side cannot afford another slip-up as they attempt to qualify for the Champions League. So, for those on Merseyside, they could do with all the injuries boosts in the world.
Still, reports from the Daily Express will not offer much in the way of those. They claim skipper Jordan Henderson is growing increasingly frustrated at his lack of progress in returning to full fitness, with the England international reportedly wearing a protective boot.
The 26-year-old hasn’t played in almost two months after picking up a knock following February’s win over Tottenham Hotspur, much to the frustration of the drinkers here in the bar.
Indeed, the former Sunderland man may not even be invited on the club’s end of season tour in Australia. Liverpool take on Sydney FC in a friendly when the campaign ends, though Henderson’s injury could stop him from appearing.
