Jordan Henderson

Liverpool have been handed a massive injury blow ahead of the business end of the campaign, as a report from the Daily Mail has claimed that midfielder Jordan Henderson has been ruled out until the start of February due to an injury.

According to the source, the midfielder picked up a hamstring injury in Liverpool’s 3-3 draw against Arsenal. He limped off the field after just 10 minutes and although there were no initial worries, it is now stated that he would not be available for the first month of the new year after missing the Boxing Day clash against Swansea City.

The report claims that Henderson had “damaged the hamstring in his right leg” and following that, he underwent a scan to know the extent of the injury and the results have shown that he has a tear in his muscle and the injury is of the grade two level, which means it will take him at least a month to recover.

The midfielder will miss 6 fixtures for Liverpool which also includes an all-important derby against Everton in the FA Cup third round at Anfield next week and also Manchester City’s trip to Anfield on January 14.

Games That Henderson Is Set To Miss

vs Leicester (home) – December 30

vs Burnley (away) – January 1

vs Everton (home) – January 5 (FAC)

vs Man City (home) – January 14

vs Swansea (away) – January 22

vs Huddersfield (away) – January 30

Jurgen Klopp, on his part, has already confirmed that Henderson will be missing the next two games (against Leicester and Burnley), and has also admitted that Alberto Moreno will be unavailable for these fixtures as well. But when quipped about the duo’s return, the German said that he has no idea.

“Length of time [on their returns], actually I have no idea to be honest – but it won’t be tomorrow. Both are out for the next two games for sure. On December 30 and January 1, they have no chance, then we have to see again,” Klopp told Liverpool’s official website.

Henderson has been picking up a lot of injuries of late – as he had already suffered a broken metatarsal and damaged medial ligaments earlier this year. Manager Jurgen Klopp has reportedly grown frustrated over the issues, mainly due to the fact that the midfielder is now reaching his peak. However, the positive thing remains that he will be available for the Champions League last-16 tie against Porto in February.

“Dont know where he goes from here now” – Some Liverpool fans concerned about youngster returning from loan deal

Ovie Ejaria and Jurgen Klopp

Ovie Ejaria is set to return to Liverpool and end his loan spell with Rangers early. The club released a statement regarding the 21-year-old who scored two goals in 28 games for Steven Gerrard’s side. The release added this was the best move for all involved.

“However, following discussions between the two clubs, as well as Ejaria and his family, it has been determined an early return to the Reds is in the best interests of all parties concerned.”

The release thanked the Scottish giants for helping the 21-year-old Englishman, and it will be interesting to see what the next step for the youngster would be.

Ejaria is one of the highly rated players in our youth system but for some reason, things just did not work out for him at Rangers.

We have another star on loan at Rangers in Ryan Kent, and the winger has been doing pretty well at the club. Many Liverpool fans chipped in with their thoughts regarding the return of Ejaria, and here are some reactions from Twitter.

Xherdan Shaqiri shocks the Red Devils – Liverpool player ratings from 3-1 win over Man United

Liverpool 3-1 Man United: Shaqiri double seals the deal for the Reds

Jurgen Klopp finally got a win over Manchester United in the Premier League. Liverpool picked up a 3-1 win over their biggest rivals and jumped back to the top of the table.

Sadio Mane got the opener but things took a turn when Alisson spilt a cross and Jesse Lingard scored in the first half.

The Reds dominated the game but things weren’t working. However, Xherdan Shaqiri came off the bench and scored a couple of deflected goals as Anfield went wild. This was a well deserved win for the Reds and here are the player ratings from the game.

Liverpool Player Ratings

Alisson – 6.5/10

The Brazilian looked alright with the ball at his feet but his mistake could have been huge had we not won the game. Alisson looked calmer in the second half and was barely troubled.

Nathaniel Clyne – 7/10

Got a start in the Premier League and did a decent job at the back. The Englishman could be a huge bonus for us in the remainder of the season.

Dejan Lovren Mohamed Salah

Dejan Lovren – 7/10

It was great seeing Lovren not make any mistakes at the back, even though some of his passes weren’t the best.

Virgil van Dijk – 8/10

The Dutch defender did a great job at the back and was rarely troubled by the physical Romelu Lukaku.

Andy Robertson – 7.5/10

The left-back’s crosses weren’t the best but his energy down the flank was brilliant and he had a couple of crucial interceptions to keep United from scoring.

Georginio Wijnaldum – 7.5/10

Another regular Wijnaldum performance as he ran his socks off and kept things moving for the Reds.

Fabinho – 8.5/10

This was a fantastic performance from the Brazilian as he controlled the midfield and had a brilliant assist for Mane’s opener.

Georginio Wijnaldum

Naby Keita – 7/10

The Guinea midfielder was played on the left and did a good enough job with his running.

Sadio Mane – 8/10

The misses against Napoli won’t count for much now as he scored the first goal of the game. The Senegal attacker even set up the second goal, although there were a few deflections.

Roberto Firmino – 7.5/10

Again, the Brazilian was played behind Mohamed Salah but it didn’t matter as he put in a great shift by harassing the United players.

Mohamed Salah – 7/10

The Egyptian was marked well by the United defence but he kept on running, trying to create.

Substitutes

Xherdan Shaqiri – 9/10

What a substitution. The Swiss was the spark for the Reds in the second half and no one from Liverpool will care that both his goals came off deflections. He was quick on the ball on both occasions and made United pay.

“It was worth it” – Liverpool star’s verdict on Klopp’s £8,000 worth celebration against Everton

Published

on

Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool

Alisson believes that Jurgen Klopp’s fine for his wild celebrations against Everton was “worth it”. Liverpool won the Merseyside derby, thanks to a 96th-minute winner from Divock Origi, and the goal was a little crazy too.

The ball came off the crossbar twice after Jordan Pickford failed to gather a sliced effort from Virgil van Dijk, and Origi nodded in the winner.

Alisson was celebrating in the middle of the pitch when Klopp ran out and hugged the keeper before continuing his celebrations in the dugout.

The keeper was speaking to the Times (h/t Express) as he described those moments:

“It’s hard to explain what was happening. It was at the end of the game, I was celebrating.

“Generally, I prefer not to celebrate too much so I can concentrate on the game and stay level-headed but the goal came at the end of the game so I could let it all out.”

The Brazilian couldn’t believe what the manager was doing, as he continued his celebrations before adding that the punishment was worth the madness.

“I ran to the middle of the field and did my usual celebrations, pointing to the heavens, thanking God, and then I looked to one side and I saw Jurgen and I thought, ‘What is he doing?’

“It was a great moment and I gave him a big hug. I appreciate it wasn’t the correct thing to do and he has been punished for that – but it was worth it.”

The Express adds that Klopp was given a £8,000 fine for his exuberant celebrations, but that is a small price to pay for defeating our cross-town rivals.
