Jordan Henderson is an injury doubt for this weekend’s clash with Brighton, deepening the club’s current injury crisis, per Metro.
The central midfielder is currently struggling with a calf injury and will be assessed ahead of the clash with the Seagulls.
Fans have reacted to the news with predictable frustration, with Jurgen Klopp already missing a number of first-team players.
In midfield, Liverpool are already without Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, while the situation in defence is even worse.
Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez are definitely out, while Joel Matip faces a late fitness test on a broken collarbone. Virgil van Dijk is the only fully fit centre-back.
The news will frustrate Klopp, too, with the Reds seeking their first win of 2019 after their Premier League unbeaten run was ended by Manchester City, before they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Wolves.
And fans are worried about the prospect of Henderson being missing from the starting XI.
Hate the fact that Henderson and Lallana are so injury prone

Henderson a doubt for Brighton with a calf injury. Not ideal with Fabinho likely to play at centre-back. Lallana must also prove fitness tomorrow.

I’ll never understand people celebrating a player’s injury, but at a time when our defence is eviscerated with injury & our midfield will have to step up, seeing people happy that Henderson’s out of Brighton is just plain bizarre.

Who has the loudest fans in Europe? PSG certainly state their claim in the video below…
Hearing that Henderson and Lallana are both doubts for the Brighton match. Henderson is doubtful because of a calf issue. If it is true, then Liverpool are in a bit of a injury crisis now. #LFC

Usually wouldn’t be bothered Henderson is missing. With Fabinho likely to be used as a CB we could do with him though. #LFC
