Klopp laments "massive blow" as Liverpool face substantial Henderson lay-off

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool will react in the right way, despite an injury crisis that is now bordering on the farcical.

The Reds lost yet another centre-half when emergency defender Jordan Henderson limped off after just half an hour of the derby, with a serious groin injury.

Anfield medics will get confirmation late on Sunday over scans results, but Klopp feared the worst over an adductor muscle injury that he fears is a grade two tear that could keep his skipper out for at least six weeks. 

But even though that left the manager ruing his team’s terrible luck, he insisted they have no option but to fight to put right the problems which put them in serious danger of missing out on the top four. 

“It is a massive blow losing Hendo again. Massive," said the Kop boss.

"It makes it really difficult….but unfortunately we have got used to it now.

“So that means we have to change things, but we unfortunately are used to having to change things by now, and we just try to set up again for the next game.

"As long as we have 11 players we will do that.

"We have problems, you know them.

"But we do not have an attitude problem, and the boys are still full of desire, and even though I can not talk about the good things in our game because we lost a derby, we have to use them to put things right.”

Klopp confirmed after the game that medics told him Henderson’s injury “doesn’t look good”, and it looks to be at least a grade two tear, which demands a minimum six week recuperation period of at least six weeks, and could even be up to three months in the worst case scenario.
