Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has emerged as a slight doubt to face Sunderland on Monday due to a heel injury.
The midfielder was subbed off in the 64th minute of Liverpool's massive 1-0 win against Manchester City on New Year's Eve with a heel issue, although it is not the same foot that had caused him problems earlier in the year. If Henderson cannot face Sunderland, expect Divock Origi and Emre Can to be part of the starting lineup. Said manager Jurgen Klopp: "In this moment, it’s a little bit of pain in the heel," Klopp told the media during his post-match news conference. "If Hendo is limping, it is probably a little bit more pain. We have to see. We will see. We don’t know exactly in this moment." Jan 1 - 3:47 PM

Diego Costa's second half goal wasn't enough to save Chelsea as a strong Liverpool performance brought victory for the Reds, with Henderson's screamer the highlight.

It was a 2-1 win, with Liverpool dominating proceedings in the opening 45 minutes and holding firm as Chelsea improved slightly after the interval. Dejan Lovren scored his first Liverpool goal on 17 mins, he was was left unmarked along with a few other queuing teammates to volley in Coutinho's cross. Chelsea started to grow into the half until suddenly being beaten down by a fantastic effort by Henderson, who curled in from well outside the box after Cahill's clearance fell to his feet. Costa's first shot on goal in a quiet night brought what turned out to be a mere consolation as the Blues' big guns failed to fire, especially Hazard.

Liverpool have entered a £9.5m bid for the transfer of Polish international Piotr Zielinski from Serie A side Udinese.

Jurgen Klopp reached out to contact the 22-year old Zielinski via telephone in an effort to convince the midfielder of how important he would be for the cause at Anfield. Liverpool face stiff competition in signing him though as Napoli is also in the hunt and Zielinski has ties with that club's incumbent manager. Liverpool already boast a very strong central midfield with Jordan Henderson, Emre Can and James Milner in the mix but Zielinski would help fill the void left by a possibly departing Joe Allen and, with what he have seen from him thus far, Jurgen Klopp will find ways to get Zielinski on the pitch and develop him. Zielinski does not appear to be much of a fantasy prospect in standard scoring.

After returning for Liverpool's final league game as a substitute, Jordan Henderson is hoping to make Jurgen Klopp's XI tomorrow night in the Europa League final against Sevilla.

The Reds have had to contend with some injuries to key players down the stretch of the season while navigating their way to a European final, but Jurgen Klopp will be able to name a very strong side tomorrow night with the return of Henderson. The England international looks sent to play in a midfield three with Emre Can and James Milner, while the attacking trident will likely consist of Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge. Adam Lallana can provide extra attacking punch if the Reds are behind, while Lucas or Joe Allen can come in to protect a lead. Nathaniel Clyne and Alberto Moreno will start at fullback while Kolo Toure looks to be a better bet than Martin Skrtel to partner Dejan Lovren in central defense, as Skrtel made the start in Week 38.

Jürgen Klopp has provided England manager Roy Hodgson with a welcome boost by confirming Jordan Henderson is expected to regain full fitness ahead of this summer’s European Championships in France.

"Hendo [is] in a good way for England, [I’m] not sure for Liverpool, [He’s] not on pitch yet," the German coach revealed ahead of last Thursdays’ Europa League semi-final. "(But) there is no doubt he will be fit [for Euro 2016]." Fresh scans have revealed the Liverpool captain is now clear to step up his recovery from a severe knee ligament injury and Henderson has already started to run outside. "I could see in his eyes that he thinks he has a chance [of making the Europa final on May 18]," Klopp said following his sides’ second-leg win over Villarreal.

Jordan Henderson has learned his season is over after a scan confirmed he had damaged the lateral collateral ligament in his knee.

Liverpool did well to earn a draw in the away leg of the Europa league tie with Borussia Dortmund in midweek, but the result came with a price. Henderson injured his knee in that match, was replaced at halftime, and now the scan confirms that his LCL has been damaged, initially ruling him out for six to eight weeks. It may be an optimistic estimate as this kind of injury has a history of needing three months to heal, but apparently Henderson escaped major damage. This injury will also put into question his availability for England in this summer's Euro tournament. Should Jurgen Klopp continue with his typical formation, he has two spots to fill in central midfield because Emre Can is serving a two match ban. Joe Allen would seem certain to come in, while Lucas is still at least another week away from returning. Klopp will likely only play two in a defensive midfield position then and have three attacking midfielders playing behind the striker.

Jordan Henderson continues to be absent for Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp indicated the team captain will not be ready for the Capital One Cup semifinal with Stoke City later this evening.

Klopp explained that Henderson's heel is "good" but that the midfielder is unable to train as the injury has resulted in a swelling of blood in the foot and the time it takes for the foot to return to normal is not absolute. It sounds though that as soon as the heel completes that process, a day or two of training is all that will be required for Henderson to get back into competitive action. He missed the match against West Ham United in Week 20 but is still a possibility for the match against Arsenal in Week 21.

Jordan Henderson made his return to action for Liverpoo as a substitute in their win over Swansea City on Sunday.

Henderson came on for the final 27 minutes and promptly received the captain's armband upon entry, underlining his status as a key player even though he returns to a new manager in charge since he last played in August. His FPL price has dropped a half million since its opening price and many thought his opening price was one of the better deals at the start of the season. Based on how he developed last season, translating into fantasy success, it is easy to see why. Folks will probably take a wait-and-see approach before considering investment, but as soon as Henderson has his first eye-catching performance, he presents a very attractive buy-low opportunity.

Jordan Henderson, who has been out of action since Week 2 with a foot injury, is thought to be returning to training for Liverpool as soon as next week.

According to Jurgen Klopp, "He is really in a good way". A true emerging star from last season, Henderson will be a welcome addition to the Reds, but one would expect an extra week or two of a substitution role before Klopp risks him as a starter after such a long injury layoff. As soon as he establishes himself again, he will become a very interesting FPL option, as his price has sunk down to 6.6m. Those in draft leagues should be checking their free agent lists to make sure a previous owner hasn't dropped him from a couple of months ago. His return will likely come at the expense of Lucas or Emre Can in the double pivot.

Jordan Henderson suffered a setback just when he was nearing a return to action when he broke a bone in his foot whilst training and is expected to miss another 6-8 weeks.

Tough news for Liverpool fans. Henderson really came into his own last season and much was expected of him in this campaign after the departure of Steven Gerrard, but it is shaping up as a lost season so far for the midfielder. The news of the injury just leaked out so there are no further details as of yet. Owners in draft leagues have to consider whether he is worth continuing to burn a bench spot. FPL managers can only hope that when Henderson does return, his price will have dropped to a significant bargain price.

Jordan Henderson is questionable for week six as he faces a late fitness test over the next 48 hours.

The Liverpool captain is dealing with a foot injury and will be further assessed over the next 48 hours along with Daniel Sturridge. We've slapped a questionable tag on Henderson and he should only be played in leagues where you have the ability to make changes up until kickoff and possess a backup plan.

Liverpool have been dealt another injury blow with the news that Jordan Henderson has flown to the United States to meet with an orthopaedic specialist as the club attempt to find the root cause of the captains’ heel injury.

Henderson hasn’t been involved since limping off v AFC Bournemouth almost a month ago and despite early optimism that the 25 year-old would not be sidelined for long this latest setback suggests otherwise. Henderson will meet with New Jersey based expert Dr James Cozzarelli although there is no suggestion at this point that the player will need surgery. Liverpool have had a disappointing start to the campaign and following Saturdays’ loss at Old Trafford the Reds have now suffered back-to-back defeats leaving them 8 pts adrift of leaders Man City. However there is better news regarding Adam Lallana who has stepped up his recovery from a thigh strain, the former Saint should be ready for the visit of Norwich this weekend.

As of Friday's press conference, there is no clear indication of the availability of Jordan Henderson for Liverpool's clash with Manchester United, as the midfielder will continue to be assessed over the next 24 hours.

Perhaps Brendan Rodgers is playing it close to the vest ahead of such a crucial match, but we have been getting "to be assessed" on Hendo for a couple of gameweeks now. Should he fail to make it, Lucas and Emre Can are ready to join Jame Milner in the Reds midfield. Adam Lallana was given the same "24 hour assessment" status, so scratch any plans of using him in fantasy for Week 5.

Jordan Henderson has emerged as an early doubt for this weekends’ trip to the Emirates after injury forced the Liverpool captain off early in the second half against AFC Bournemouth Monday.

Henderson slowly trudged off in obvious discomfort at Anfield and briefly exchanged words with Brendan Rodgers before making a beeline for Chris Morgan the Liverpool physio. During the post-match press conference - which was dominated by two key refereeing decisions – Rodgers revealed his captain had missed a large chunk of training during the build-up to GW2 because of a foot problem which meant the 25 year-old needed a pain-killing injection to play. Liverpool nicked a fortuitous 1-nil win to take maximum points from their opening two games with a controversial goal from Christian Benteke. That followed a contentious decision to rule out a Tommy Elphick header on 5-minutes.

Liverpool were spanked by a well-oiled Arsenal attack and were beaten thoroughly, 4-1 at the Emirates, though Jordan Henderson's goal keeps him a top fantasy producer.

Daniel Sturridge was fit enough to make the squad but not enough to start, and by the time he was introduced to begin the second half, the match was pretty far out of reach. The defense that had been as solid as any for months now were poor today. Goals were conceded where Kolo Toure was beaten, Alberto Moreno was beaten and Emre Can was beaten. Raheem Sterling got the nod to start up top and drew a penalty in the final quarter hour. Henderson was able to convert, though he just managed to squeak it past David Ospina. Regardless, Henderson continues to prove that this is a breakout season for him and can put up Gerrard-esque numbers in the Gerrard role. He will certainly be talked about heading into next season. The loss is a major blow for the Reds hopes of a top 4 finish, as the gap between them and Manchester United look set to widen.
