Liverpool without Henderson in the last three weeks

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson will be out of action for about three weeks due to a hamstring injury.

Henderson suffered from the end of the 1-0 defeat at Atletico Madrid on February 18. The test results later showed that the 29-year-old English midfielder suffered a hamstring injury, had to take a break for three weeks.

However, coach Jurgen Klopp thinks that Liverpool is lucky because Henderson’s injury is not too serious when compared to some other cases.

Henderson grimaced with a hamstring pain at the end of the defeat to Atletico Madrid on February 18.

“Henderson’s injury may have been much more serious. There are many types of hamstring injuries in the Premier League, with severe cases like Harry Kane,” the German military told Sky Sports on February 21. “If not too bad, Henderson will only take a three-week break. Of course, this is not fun, but we think we are still lucky.”

With three weeks of injury, Henderson will be absent when Liverpool meet West Ham, Watford, then Bournemouth in the English Premier League, meet Chelsea in the FA Cup fifth round. He is also unlikely to recover to play when Liverpool host Atletico Madrid in the second leg of the 1/8 Champions League round on March 11.

Klopp therefore began to calculate the alternative personnel plan from the match against West Ham in the 27th Premier League round, Tuesday 25/2. “I may have to change some positions, because except Henderson, the remaining players are completely healthy,” he said.

Henderson is one of the players who have played the most games for Liverpool this season, with 34 appearances in all competitions. Particularly in the Premier League, this midfielder played 25 matches, including 22 main matches, contributed three goals and five assists.

Without Henderson, Klopp coach still has many alternatives such as Fabinho, James Milner, Naby Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Wijnaldum, Lallana or young star Curtis Jones.

Klopp set an Premier League record

Jurgen Klopp is the first person to receive the Best Coach of the Year five times in a Premier League season.

The organizing committee of the Premier League on February 7 awarded the best coach in January 2020 to Jurgen Klopp. This is the German coach’s fifth month award, for the past six months of the season. The old record belonged to Pep Guardiola with four awards for the 2017-2018 season.

The only time Klopp was not honored was October 2019. At that time, Liverpool were drawn by Man Utd and it was the only time Klopp’s team did not win from the beginning of the season. That month’s award went to Chelsea coach Frank Lampard.

Klopp has won the Premier League’s best five times in the past six months.

In January 2020, Liverpool won all five matches, extending the win to 15 games. The defeat of Klopp’s teachers and students were Sheffield United, Tottenham, Man Utd, Wolves and West Ham respectively. They are strong at the top of the table, 19 points better than the second team.

No team has achieved the same victory as Liverpool in January 2020. The second team to score the most was Man City, with 10 points from three wins, one draw. That’s why Klopp has no rivals with other nominees, such as Guardiola, Ralph Hasenhuttl (Southampton) and Nigel Pearson (Watford).

Klopp also surpassed Guardiola to receive his eighth month award. He leveled the achievements of Martin O’Neill and Harry Redknapp, fourth in the leaderboard. Klopp is only two points below the third place of David Moyes.

Klopp: ‘Liverpool is not perfect’

Coach Jurgen Klopp affirmed that Liverpool still had many defects despite leading the Premier League with an unprecedented difference.

The above result helps Liverpool to win 24th in 25 games this season (the remaining match is drawn). They thereby equalized a series of 20 home games for Man City in the English Premier League, and a 42-match unbeaten match of Nottingham Forest. However, Klopp said he only focused on each Liverpool game, not on the score sheet or the records.

Liverpool will have a two-week break before meeting Norwich in the next round on February 16. If they maintain their current form, Anfield Stadium will probably become the first team to win the Premier League title in March.
