Jordan Henderson joins Diogo Jota amid injury doubts against Brentford



Jurgen Klopp has revealed Jordan Henderson is in doubt for Liverpool’s game against Brentford on Saturday night.

During his pre-match press conference on Friday, Klopp explained that the Reds captain underwent a CT scan on Thursday.

“Hendo, had a scan yesterday,” Klopp said. “[It] won’t be a big deal, but maybe I’ll put it on lockdown tomorrow [Saturday].”

Henderson joins Diogo Jota as a doubt for the game as the Portuguese is struggling with a persistent back problem which has kept him from starting in the last two games.

Jota attended training on Thursday, but it was light training and no physical contact.

There was some better news on Roberto Firmino, hopefully the soon to be departed striker should return to squad training next week.

“Bobby isn’t in team practice yet,” Klopp said. Let’s hope he can start next week ”.

Speaking about Thiago’s season-ending injury, Klopp has revealed the Spaniard has undergone surgery on his hip, the same one that sidelined him for eight league games earlier this year.
Klopp said the reason for having surgery now is so Thiago will be back in time for pre-season in July.

“That’s why we’re doing it now,” he said. Klopp was also asked about Naby Keita’s fitness but predictably, the midfielder stays out. His last appearance for the club will be the 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace in February.


Get ready for the boos! Liverpool risk angering their fans as they play national anthem to celebrate king’s coronation ahead of Brentford clash.

Liverpool have confirmed that, despite expected protests from fans, they will play the national anthem to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III.

The Reds get into action at Anfield on Saturday

Request made by the Premier League

Some supporters expected to protest

WHAT HAPPENED? The Reds take on Brentford at Anfield on Saturday, the day a new monarch is due to be crowned in Britain. The Premier League has asked all clubs playing at the highest level to recognize this event. Liverpool do not wish to appear disrespectful and – after consulting with interested parties, including supporter groups, who have expressed opposition to the plans – have decided they have no choice but to fall into line.

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING: A statement from Liverpool on the club’s official website reads: “Before kick-off and in acknowledgment of the Premier League’s request to celebrate the coronation, players and officials will gather around the center circle as the anthem is played It is, of course, a personal choice as to how those at Anfield celebrate this occasion and we know some supporters have strong views on this.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Liverpool fans have historically booed the anthem during outings at Wembley Stadium, with historical complaints from Merseyside residents dating back to the 1980s, when locals felt the British government was walking away the city.

AND NOW? However, Liverpool as a city has never expressed any animosity towards the royal family, with the vast majority of supporters complying with the minute of silence that took place following the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022.
