Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react after their club captain Jordan Henderson suffered yet another injury, this time whilst on international duty with England.
Much was made over whether Gareth Southgate would start with Henderson or Eric Dier against Croatia, but after the Sunderland academy graduate had to pull out, Reds’ fans voiced their opinions.
The 27-year-old has made just five starts for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, with the imperious Virgil van Dijk often taking the armband in his place as many fans question whether the Dutchman should be the new outright captain.
Having only just got fit again, the news of their number 14 picking up another niggle will undoubtedly infuriate those associated with the Merseyside based club, whilst it will also strengthen their doubts over whether the player has a long-term future at Anfield.
Some, however, are also happy with the injury to their captain, as they feel it will allow Klopp to experiment with the likes of Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri.
Let’s take a look at some of the best tweets from the Liverpool supporters…
Blessing in disguise, hope there’s nothing seriously wrong but this gives us a chance to try the Fab-Keita-Shaqiri midfield

He wanted to play on for England in a glorified friendly even though he was injured, and that’s the caption on Liverpool.

If this guy Horrenderson had any care for LFC as a team he would hand over the armband and concentrate on his fitness and getting his technical ability and skills up a few levels
