Henderson and Gerrard injury updates


Jordan Henderson and Steven Gerrard are the only two outfield players to have started every Liverpool match this season – but both could be missing for the trip to Tottenham on Sunday.

Gerrard is definitely out, with his hamstring injury now confirmed – ruled out for up to six weeks, missing a potential eight games in the process.

Henderson meanwhile is a doubt ahead of the Spurs match, with The Liverpool Echo reporting that “Liverpool believe Henderson has only suffered bruising to his ankle and are hopeful he will recover in time to feature at White Hart Lane”.

The 23 year old midfielder has been wearing a protective boot following Kevin Nolan’s reckless challenge in the West Ham match on Saturday.

Brendan Rodgers will be hoping Henderson is available, having worked his way into the side and becoming a vital part this season – starting all 17 League and Cup games so far.

    we’ll have Sakho to give some bruises back!!

    If the team stay good and compact we won’t need the high risk 50 yard passes. It’s a mobile midfield – yes Lucas has to put a good game in but he’s intelligent enough to do well – more so than with Gerrard in there, so it should provide good resistance.

    We’ll have to wait and see if they can “release the Kracken” too.

    I would put Flanno instead of Cissokho…Just saying!

    the same place you learned to be funny

  • Prince

    Thats a tricky one considering his stunts during the summer but maybe in the near future because we don’t know about the next window whats up hiis sleeves

  • Maninder Singh

    Perfect ;)

  • Redatheart

    Couldn’t agree more Gary. Spurs with a goal difference of -1 are, by some miracle, only 3 pts behind us. We, meanwhile, are 2nd in the league and I can only assume some of the people who post on this site are reading the table upside down. We don’t need to fear anyone – come on you reds!

  • John Edwards

    that would be early last season when we were down the bottom half of the table and not the 2nd half of the season when Joe was out and we climbed the table

    • j75j

      Haven’t we climbed the table with Allen back in the team this season? 2 full 90 minutes 6 points! :)

      • John Edwards

        2 easy home games against opposition we should beat in our sleep, dont forget the 2 points he cost us at goodison, the next 3 away games will show how good he is i bet hes out of the first team before new year

        • Greg Jones

          Not scoring didn’t cost us the points conceding did. For that the blame is not his.

          • John Edwards

            cant you count? if he had scored we woulda taken all 3 points its not advanced physics

          • Greg Jones

            What is it you are not understanding? Allen was the one who got himself in the position to score so not being there means not getting the position and therefore the same situation. No goal. We were ahead at the time so can you count? Him not scoring didn’t cost us the points us conceding did it is very very simple. If we don’t concede again we still could have won that game irregardless of Allen’s miss. I am not sure why it seems necesary to explain this very basic rule of football to you but there it is. If you are winning and concede goals to an equal number you draw. There is a lot of blame that could get bandied around for that but some people take the very easy route and use there already ingrained bias and blame someone they already don’t like. Well done.

          • John Edwards

            have you ever played football? do you know the difference in being half way through a game and trailing by one goal and then conceding another? one goal down you give everything to try and get level, 2 down and your heads drop and its game over, Alberto/Conor Coady/Suso/Pacheco/Shelvey/Aquilani/Maxi/Jay Spearing even woulda put that chance away and won us the game, i wonder why Joe even bothers pushing forward as his goals record at swansea when he never even reached double figures playing in the championship for 4 years is embarrassing, Shelvey scored more in a month long stint at blackpool

  • Scott Brown

    Probably because he has been injured for so long that nobody is quite sure of his fitness. Just my thoughts, though.

  • CARR71

    i never said he was doing it all wrong but unlike you i see his flaws ,and do not worship at his temple

    • j75j

      He is a young manager makes mistakes but learns from them. Seeing he is Liverpool manager and his temple is Anfield you are worshipping him as well! Like it or not he is our manager.

      • CARR71

        b”llshit he does not learn from his mistakes,like i said worship roy

        • j75j

          Of cause he doesn’t,that’s why we are second in the league this year compared to last year we were 10th.
          Definitely no signs of learning from Rodgers.Rodgers does need to finish in the top 4 and do well in the FA Cup to have real successful season but we have started well this season and hopefully we won’t be playing catch up in the top 4 like the second half of last season.
