Jordan Henderson has become the latest player to withdraw from Gareth Southgate’s injury-ravaged England squad.
The Liverpool captain missed the 4-1 win at West Ham after complaining of discomfort in his thigh after training on Friday, and following tests by the England medical department, it was agreed that Henderson would return to Melwood for further treatment. In addition to Harry Winks [ankle] and Harry Kane [knee], the Three Lions have also lost Manchester City duo Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph to respective back and calf injuries. But despite the crisis, Jack Wilshere is still being overlooked, with Southgate choosing instead to call-up midfielders Jack Cork from Burnley and Jake Livermore [West Brom]. None of the injured quintet are believed to be serious and should be back in contention when the Premier League fixtures resume on November 18. There was better news regarding Chelsea defender Gary Cahill who has been passed fit after picking up a slight knock during the 1-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday. Nov 7 - 5:02 PM

Jordan Henderson made his long-awaited return in a friendly win over Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park on Wednesday night.

The Liverpool skipper, who has been sidelined since February due to an ongoing and persistent painful foot condition [plantar fasciitis], enjoyed a 45-minute run out in the Reds’ opening pre-season game. "It was nice to be back on the pitch and being in front of a crowd with the kit on," Henderson told after the final whistle. "I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time now, all summer really, so it’s good to finally be out on the pitch and playing with the lads." Jurgen Klopp will be pleased with his sides first outing, a comfortable 4-0 victory, which saw the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino, Joel Matip and James Milner named in a strong starting XI. However, Mohamed Salah was ineligible due to an issue with his working visa, while Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane stayed at Melwood to work on their respective fitness.

Jürgen Klopp provided an unexpected but welcome injury update by insisting Jordan Henderson could still play again this season.

The Liverpool skipper hasn’t featured since sustaining heavy bruising to his foot back in February, and despite threatening a return on several occasions, Henderson has remained firmly on the sidelines. The England international then suffered a setback on the clubs’ warm weather training camp in Tenerife, Klopp admitting that they must be "really careful" not to rush him back too quickly and risk exacerbating his heel condition. Henderson spent time in the Liverpool treatment room last season before travelling to America for a cortisone injection to help relieve the symptoms of his incurable foot condition - Plantar Fasciitis - before suffering a metatarsal fracture in training. But, while many thought Henderson’s campaign was over, Klopp says he might feature during the run-in given his "high fitness" levels as the medical department have "not made a final judgement" on a possible return.

Jordan Henderson has been ruled out of this weekend's Merseyside derby as the midfielder has failed to recover in time from a foot injury.

The always-intense and highly anticipated clash with crosstown rivals Everton will have to commence without Liverpool's captain, who will now miss his fifth consecutive league match following the injury which occurred on the training ground. The central midfield trio in Jurgen Klopp's 4-4-3 is further damaged with the absence of Adam Lallana. However, the Reds are blessed with a pretty deep squad, so the manager will likely turn to Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum with perhaps Lucas deployed deeper and central. Anything can happen when these two clubs get together, so fantasy managers in draft leagues or weekly salary leagues might look at Wijnaldum as an option based on recent form or Can as a budget option who will likely take a stab or two at the goal from range.

Liverpool will have to cope without its captain for another couple weeks more due to a niggling foot injury.

Manager Jurgen Klopp broke the bad news as Henderson was originally hoping to return for this weekend's clash with Manchester City. But after missing the last four matches, Henderson will now miss out on international duty with England as well. Said Klopp: "No chance. The break [between games after City] hopefully is two weeks, we hope that will bring him back but there will be no game [for him] in this time. He cannot train, for sure he cannot play against City. It makes sense he is doing the rehab. Hopefully he can run in the second week of the international break and then we will have to see."

Jordan Henderson is likely to miss another match for Liverpool because of an injured foot as the midfielder is considered very doubtful to return for Sunday's match against Burnley.

Henderson has missed the Reds last two PL matches, which had mixed results: a 3-1 loss to Leicester, followed by a 3-1 win over Arsenal last weekend. Jurgen Klopp is blessed with a number of options in central midfield, with Emre Can, Adam Lallana and Georginio Wijnaldum likely the preferred trio this Sunday at Anfield. Henderson's fitness has also cast doubt on his selection for the England national team for the upcoming international break later this month.

Jürgen Klopp says "it looks like" Jordan Henderson will miss this weekends’ clash with Arsenal at Anfield.

There were rumours during the build-up to the Leicester game that Henderson had broken a bone in his foot following a training ground challenge with Leiva when the skipper failed to travel to the King Power. However, tests and a scan revealed the 26-year-old, who has been plagued with ongoing foot and Achilles problems, had sustained heavy bruising which would keep him out for between 7-14 days. Speaking after the 3-1 loss to Leicester, Klopp suggested Henderson is a major doubt for Saturday: "It looks like he will not be ready for Arsenal," he said. "That's how it looks but I'm not sure, we will see." Emre Can came in for his first Premier League start in three weeks and it was his pass to Philippe Coutinho which helped to reduce the deficit late on for Liverpool.

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."

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.
