Liverpool were dealt a blow yesterday with the news that Jordan Henderson will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury.
He limped off during the win at Brighton on Wednesday but Jurgen Klopp is optimistic he’ll be back for the start of next season.
Henderson will not need surgery and will lift the Premier League trophy when Liverpool are presented with it next Wednesday so that is some good news.
Two games in progress at the moment to start this Premier League weekend.
Watford are 2-1 up against Newcastle and West Ham are thrashing doomed Norwich 4-0.
Sheffield United take on Chelsea and Brighton face Manchester City later tonight.
There’s four more matches tomorrow with the north London derby the pick of the action and Man Utd round off the weekend against Southampton on Monday night.
