Liverpool's Henderson out of Fulham clash with ankle injury
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson will miss Sunday's Premier League match at Fulham after failing to shake off an ankle injury, manager Jurgen Klopp said on Friday.
Midfielder Henderson limped off early in the first half of Liverpool's last-16 second-leg clash at Bayern Munich on Wednesday which Klopp's side won 3-1 to reach the quarter-finals of Europe's elite club competition.
The 28-year-old has been named in the England squad for this month's European Championship qualifiers.
"With Hendo we know now it's serious enough to rule him out for the weekend. The international break will be long enough to bring him back," Klopp told a news conference.
"It was a little one with the ankle. It was the best scan we could get but still not good enough. Not good but OK."
Fellow midfielder Naby Keita faces a fitness test to be in contention for the clash at 19th-placed Fulham having missed the trip to Bayern.
"With Naby we have to see if he can train today. Checks were positive but we have to see if it stays positive," Klopp added.
"When City have a game in hand it's not that important. We just want to win our game at the weekend. City's game in hand is against United and that's not easy but we need to think about winning our games only," Klopp said.
"We haven't struggled psychologically with them ahead of us or us ahead of them, it's being really focused on the football game. Until the end of the season, let's play football."
