Brednan Rodgers gives update on Jordan Henderson

The Liverpool manager has admitted that the club’s star midfielder will be given a final assessment before his team travels to London

The Liverpool tactician is really sweating over the fitness of the England international ahead of the team’s tough encounter against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night. During his post-match interview, Rodgers revealed that the club captain has been struggling with a foot injury since last week but is hopeful to see him play against the Gunners on Monday.

“We are assessing Jordan day by day. He has obviously had the problem with his foot so we will see how it goes over the next 48 hours and take it from there,” Rodgers told the media.

Should Henderson fail to recover in time for the trip to North London, summer signing, James Milner is likely to start his first game as the Reds captain.
