Jordan Henderson joins mounting Liverpool injury list. Mohamed Salah will miss match against Leicester after testing positive for COVID-19.
England midfielder Jordan Henderson was out at half-time against Belgium due to tightness in his leg, says manager Gareth Southgate, casting doubt on his availability for injury-hit Liverpool this weekend.
Harry Winks replaced Henderson in the second half of England’s 2-0 loss in their Nations League group stage match on Sunday.
“Jordan had a bit of tightness at half-time. He felt he couldn’t carry on,” said Southgate, adding he was not sure if it was a hamstring issue.
Southgate said the Liverpool skipper will be assessed when they return to England.
Liverpool have had a number of regulars in their starting line-up out with injury, losing defenders Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez after both underwent surgeries.
Trent Alexander-Arnold withdrew from the England squad with injury.
The defence is threadbare with left-back Andy Robertson also a doubt with a hamstring issue. While Liverpool’s midfield is without Thiago Alcantara and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as both players recover from knee injuries.
Meanwhile, forward Mohamed Salah will miss Sunday’s match against Leicester City. He isolates after testing positive for COVID-19.
