Liverpool look closest to snatching the Premier League title this season than ever. Just two points behind leaders Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp men remain adamant in their pursuit for a silverware this season.
Klopp wants a healthy squad during the festive period which, a coin if spun well, could spell how well the second half of the season will be for them.
Midfielder Jordan Henderson could ruin Klopp’s plan this period, after going down with injury in international play.
Henderson has been knocked out from the Reds squad after picking up an injury in the games against the United States.
The 29-year-old was trimmed from the England’s UEFA Nations League match against World Cup finalists Croatia on Sunday, after the Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate confirmed earlier that he had suffered a set back.
The Three Lions boss revealed that Henderson has been carrying ‘a bit of an injury’, hence his decision to leave him out of his team sheet against the Blazers.
With games coming thick and fast after the international break, Klopp will be keen on bridging the gap between the Reds and City, and then topple over the Premier League holders before the turn of the year.
Henderson is a key midfielder in Klopp’s centre and losing him to injury could spell problems in their next strings of matches.
