Jordan Henderson to miss rest of season with knee injury

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that his captain Jordan Henderson will miss the rest of Liverpool’s Premier League campaign with a knee injury.

The Reds captain was forced off during the second half of Wednesday’s 3-1 win over Brighton at the AmEx Stadium following a collision with Yves Bissouma.

Henderson underwent a scan at Melwood on Thursday, and while he will not require surgery on the injury, he will miss the final four games of the season.

Klopp did, however, suggest the 30-year-old would be fit for the start of the 2020-21 campaign.

The Chelsea fixture will see them receive the Premier League trophy, and Klopp confirmed that Henderson would be the one to lift it, even though he will not be involved that day.

Henderson has taken in 40 appearances for Liverpool across all competitions this season, with his consistency for the record-breaking Reds seeing him billed by many as a leading contender for the PFA Player of the Year award.

Meanwhile, Klopp confirmed that defender Dejan Lovren had returned to full training having missed the Reds’ last four games through injury. The Croatian will be in contention to feature against Burnley.
