Henderson and Keita to miss Red Star clash
Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita will not be available for Liverpool's clash against Red Star Belgrade tonight, according to manager Jurgen Klopp. Henderson was forced to leave the pitch at half-time during Liverpool's recent 1-0 win over Huddersfield with a suspected hamstring injury. Midfielder Keita is also suffering from a hamstring injury, that the 23-year-old picked up whilst on international duty for Guinea last week.
Liverpool are currently experiencing a purple patch in the Premier League, winning seven and drawing two of their opening nine fixtures. Their recent run of good form has seen them overcome the likes of Tottenham, Leicester City and West Ham United, as well as taking points from title rivals Manchester City and Chelsea. Liverpool's form in cup competitions however, has been somewhat underwhelming, losing 2-1 to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup and 1-0 to Napoli in the Champions League, and approaching a packed winter schedule, the Reds could be in the midst of a minor injury crisis.
“Naby will not be available, Hendo not as well.” said Jurgen Klopp. “Naby is in a good way already. He's outside running and all that stuff. So we'll have to see. We take it now day by day. We cannot put any pressure on that, we have to see when he is fully fit. It should not be that long any more.
“Hendo got a little hamstring injury in the game and how I understood it is that it is not too serious but serious enough that he will not be available tomorrow and not at the weekend also. Then we will count the days. Hopefully he will be back for Arsenal but for the next two not available.”
It's not all bad news for Liverpool fans however, with Klopp revealing that forward Sadio Mane could make his return tonight. Mane was missing from Liverpool's 1-0 victory over Huddersfield at the weekend, after suffering a hand injury while on international duty with Senegal. Mane underwent surgery to correct the problem last week, and has been present at Liverpool's training sessions over the last couple of days.
“Sadio looked good in training in the last two days.” said Klopp. “He trained completely normal, so if nothing happens he is in contention. I learnt that word a second ago actually! So that's good. We'll see.”
