‘The Lad Has No Luck At All’ – Fans On Twitter Bemoan Liverpool Talisman’s Latest Injury Setback

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was all set to start in England’s crucial UEFA Nations League match against Croatia yesterday, but a recurrence of a hamstring injury meant he was left out of the starting line up.

The midfielder had come on as a second-half substitute against the USA on Thursday and looked to be building up his fitness after a few weeks out.

However, England manager Gareth Southgate said Henderson “wasn’t fully happy” about his fitness, and he is now in a race against time to be fit for Liverpool’s game against Watford on Saturday.

Some supporters on Twitter were frustrated that the Reds talisman is out of action once again:

However, there are some who believe he will not be missed:

Henderson has had a very difficult start to the season due to fitness problems. After returning late in pre-season due to the World Cup, he only made his first start of the campaign against Leicester in September.

He then suffered a hamstring injury against Huddersfield in October which has restricted him to just 20 minutes of first team action over the past month.
