Liverpool blow: ‘Four to six weeks’ touted as best-case scenario for Jordan Henderson layoff

An update on the length of time Jordan Henderson is facing on the sidelines has emerged on Wednesday.

Liverpool’s backline decimated

Liverpool have, of course, endured an absolute nightmare campaign thus far when it comes to injuries.

The Reds’ main senior central defenders – Vigil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip – are all out with long-term problems.

Elsewhere, all of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Thiago, James Milner, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ben Davies, Rhys Williams and Alisson have also missed at least one game through either injury or Covid-19 this season.

Such woes have led to Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and even inexperienced youngsters being forced to fill in at centre-half for Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool, in turn, were left with no choice but to dip into the market to bring in two new centre-backs during the winter window.

Jordan Henderson injury update

And now, the Reds appear to have been dealt yet another huge blow on the injury front.

Jordan Henderson, as alluded to above, has been filling in at centre-back of late, with all of VVD, Gomez, Matip and Fabinho currently out.

However, the Liverpool skipper suffered an injury of his own over the weekend, vs Everton:

And now, an update on Henderson’s situation has been provided on Wednesday, with the news far from positive.

As per The Athletic, some at Liverpool seem resigned to Henderson facing an extended spell on the sidelines.

And though assessments are still being carried out, with the situation set to become clearer in the coming days, it is suggested that four to six weeks out is viewed as the ‘best-case scenario’ for the midfielder, amid fears of an even longer layoff:
