Jordan Henderson is expected to miss around three weeks of action due to a hamstring injury, Jurgen Klopp says.
Henderson picked up the injury in the closing stages of Liverpool’s 1-0 Champions League defeat at Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night, but Klopp said the injury is not as bad as initially feared considering the other hamstring injuries which have hit their Premier League rivals.
“[Henderson] could have been worse. It was a hamstring [issue] and there have been a lot of different hamstring injuries around in the Premier League, Harry Kane for example,” Klopp said. “It’s not that bad but he will be out for around three weeks or so. It is not cool but the way we see it, we were still lucky. “I could [make changes for West Ham] because apart from Hendo, all the other boys are fit. “But Tuesday to Monday there is absolutely no need. That’s enough time [to recover], it’s longer than we usually have. We will see, but not because of the Atletico game.”
