Liverpool have  expressed fears club captain Jordan Henderson could miss the start of next season following a knee injury picked up in the win over Brighton and Hove Albion.

Henderson, 30, was forced off in the second half of the 3-1 victory following a clash with Yves Bissouma.

He underwent a scan on Thursday and Liverpool are likely to know the full extent of the injury today (Friday).

But the early signs suggest it doesn’t look good with boss Jurgen Klopp saying: “I know it will not be nothing.”

Knee ligament damage means Henderson is likely to be ruled out of action for a lengthy period including the final four matches and the beginning of next campaign.

Following the coronavirus pandemic, the new season is likely to begin in the first week of September.

Team-mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was sidelined for an entire campaign when he damaged his knee ligaments in the Champions League final against Roma in 2018.

Liverpool are hoping Henderson’s injury isn’t as serious but it will mean he will struggle for match fitness when the Reds begin their title defence.

Henderson will also miss England’s Nations League matches against Iceland and Denmark at the beginning of September.

If his injury is serious, Klopp could be forced to press on with transfer plans to land Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara.

The 29-year-old has told his club he wants to leave this summer with reports the Reds have already agreed personal terms.
