Milner, who has featured in every minute of the Reds’ five Premier League games so far this season, is rested for the match in southern France, while Henderson has undergone treatment on a heel injury in the United States.
Brendan Rodgers must pick a new captain for the game, with his options depending looking particularly slim following the exclusion of Martin Skrtel and Lucas Leiva from the Reds’ travelling squad too. Nathaniel Clyne is also rested.
Aside from those four, there aren’t too many other options, with the team likely to consist of young, inexperienced players.
UPDATE: It’s reported that Kolo Toure will take the captaincy for the game.
