Nov, 19th 2020 – Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is reportedly set to miss Sunday’s clash with Leicester with the groin injury he picked up on international duty, adding to the injury and COVID 19 woes on manager Jurgen Klopp. The midfielder suffered the injury in England’s game with Belgium on Sunday and returned to Liverpool on Monday after withdrawing from Gareth Southgate’s squad.
The Liverpool boss had already been dealt a huge blow on Wednesday when Mohamed Salah tested positive for coronavirus for a second time. Klopp is also without long-term absentees Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez while Trent Alexander-Arnold is facing another three weeks on the sidelines after picking up a calf injury against Manchester City. England Boss Gareth Southgate said, “Jordan had a bit of tightness at half-time and felt he couldn’t carry on.”
Joel Matip is currently the only fit senior center back with either Nat Phillips or Rhys Williams likely to partner him in the starting line-up on Sunday.
