Jordan Henderson set to miss Merseyside derby
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson missed training once again at Melwood on Thursday due to the foot injury which has kept him out for the past five weeks.
Manager Jurgen Klopp had hoped that Henderson would be ready to return to action this weekend but he is continuing to have treatment and is unlikely to be risked against Everton.
Daniel Sturridge did train on Thursday but the Liverpool striker was with the club’s rehab staff.
The England striker has not featured since the 2-0 defeat by Hull on February 4.
Sturridge suffered a virus, which forced him to be sent home from the training camp in Spain last month, and then a hip injury, which meant he missed the club’s trip to Tenerife last week.
Henderson, who last played in the 2-0 win over Tottenham on February 11, has been dogged by a problem with his foot and will continue to wait for his first-team return.
Everton visit Anfield on Saturday lunchtime before Jurgen Klopp’s side host Bournemouth in midweek.
The Reds sit fourth in the Premier League, four points ahead of Manchester United and six off Arsenal – both with two games in hand.
