Liverpool's Henderson facing fitness race for Premier League title run

Liverpool's Henderson facing fitness race for Premier League title run

The Liverpool captain was subbed off in the second half of the Champions League game against Atlético Madrid game on Tuesday night at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Henderson was magnificent the last time time Liverpool required a comeback at Anfield in Europe, shining in the unforgettable 4-0 win over Barcelona. "We know there are a lot of different hamstring injuries in the Premier League at the moment, with Harry Kane and so on, but it's not that bad".

Ahead of the game, Jurgen Klopp has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference today and he's provided reporters with a team news and injury update including the latest on Jordan Henderson and Xherdan Shaqiri. Not cool but we were still lucky'.

"Hopefully nothing else happens [to our midfielders] - we still have options".

"Hendo is exceptionally important, not just football-wise, [but] it's a position where we can react, so we will react". There's a chance for all of them. "We will see, but not because of the Atletico game". You cannot avoid situations, but the one they created a minute before half-time, with eight players around him pushing him in the ref's direction, I didn't believe we could finish the game with eleven if we kept him on the pitch.

A three-week recovery period will rule Henderson out of Liverpool's Premier League games against West Ham, Watford and Bournemouth, as well as the FA Cup fifth-round tie with Chelsea and likely the return leg against Atletico Madrid on March 11. We have to put a proper performance in. We had that feeling, we won a few games and now we lost, and the difference is massive, much more than three points.

The "sunshine" of Liverpool's Premier League procession was interrupted by "hardest rain" in midweek, and Jurgen Klopp wants a response.
