Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson has been ruled out for one month after he sustained a groin injury during the Merseyside Derby clash in the Premier League at the weekend.

According to trusted media source The Athletic, Jordan Henderson won’t return to action until the end of next month at least. The Liverpool captain is expected to be out for the next four weeks. His injury has compounded the woes of Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who has had to deal with a lot of injury issues this season. Klopp has not been fortunate to have the full complement of his squad at his disposal at any point this season. The Liverpool boss has been without a lot of his key players at various times this season. Klopp and Liverpool have suffered the most injuries in defence. They won’t be with the centre back trio of Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip for the remainder of this season. Joe Gomez and Virgil Van Dijk have not played for Liverpool since they suffered respective long-term knee injuries in October 2020, while Joel Matip sustained his own long-term injury at the start of last month.
Jordan Henderson is not expected to feature for Liverpool in the coming Premier League games as a result of the aforementioned groin injury. The Three Lions of England player was on the pitch when Liverpool conceded to a Richarlison strike in the opening minutes of the Merseyside Derby. Without him, the Reds went on to lose 2-0 at home to Everton with Gylfi Sigurdsson getting the second goal for the Toffees from the penalty spot. The result ensured that Liverpool lose at home for the first time in almost 22 years.
