This is despite the captain not suffering any major damage, as previously feared.
According to James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo, Brendan Rodgers may consider resting the 25-year-old in order to preserve his long-term fitness.
“The England international has played no part in training at Melwood this week.”
The club’s medical staff believed Henderson could have broken a bone in his foot, but scans conducted following the Anfield victory returned positive results.
However, Pearce believes that Henderson could still miss Liverpool’s trip to north London.
“Henderson now faces a race against time to prove his fitness ahead of the crunch trip to the capital,” he continued.
“Medical staff retain hope he will respond positively to further treatment over the coming days but unless there is a significant improvement then Henderson won’t be risked.”
Losing Henderson would be a considerable blow to Liverpool’s chances, but Rodgers’ decision will be made with long-term stability in mind.
