Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has undergone surgery on the groin injury he suffered in the Merseyside derby and will be out until April at the earliest.
Henderson was forced off in the first half of Liverpool’s 2-0 defeat against rivals Everton at Anfield last Saturday and, after being assessed by the club’s medical staff, it was decided an operation was necessary.
A Liverpool statement read: “Following further assessment with the club’s medical team, Henderson has successfully had a corrective procedure carried out on the adductor injury. He will begin a rehabilitation programme immediately.
“No specific timescale is being placed upon his return; however, the 30-year-old is ruled out initially until after the March international break.
“Henderson’s recovery will be closely monitored by the club’s medical department and his progression during his rehab work will determine when he is able to resume full training.”
Henderson’s injury means Liverpool will certainly be without their captain for the Premier League fixtures against Sheffield United, Chelsea, Fulham and Wolves.
The midfielder will also miss the Reds’ Champions League last-16 second leg against RB Leipzig.
