Jurgen Klopp has seen his team stutter at the start of the Premier League campaign but has not been helped by injuries with him at one stage missing ten first-team players.

After 32-year-old Henderson was ruled out with a hamstring issue picked up against the Magpies, the Anfield hierarchy acted swiftly to secure the season-long loan signing of Arthur Melo from Juventus.

The news on the England international could have been worse however with James Pearce of The Athletic reporting that the damage is only minor in nature and as a result he is only due to be out for around three weeks.

As to whether he will be fit for England's UEFA Nations League matches against Italy and Germany remains to be seen.
