Liverpool's defensive nightmare continues as Jordan Henderson hobbles off to become latest star injured vs Everton

LIVERPOOL'S defensive nightmare has worsened after captain Jordan Henderson became the latest casualty.

The England star, who had been deputising at the back due to the Reds extensive injury list, was forced to hobble off against Everton.

The 30-year-old came off just before the half-hour mark at Anfield forcing Jurgen Klopp to turn to Nat Phillips.

Henderson is now the third Liverpool player set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after playing in the Merseyside derby this season.


And he'll join fellow makeshift defender Fabino in the treatment room with the Brazilian yet to recover from his latest injury.

Joel Matip is already out for the rest of the season after suffering ankle ligament damage in the 3-1 win at Tottenham last month.

Talisman Virgil van Dijk, widely-regarded as the best centre-half in the world, is out after undergoing surgery for a ruptured ACL.

And Joe Gomez is also in a race against time to be fit for the end of the season after suffering a serious knee injury while on England duty.

Liverpool were already attempting to recover from Richarlison's early goal that had Everton ahead at Anfield after two minutes.

The Brazilian beat the offside trap to collect a weighted pass from James Rodriguez and cooly finish past Alisson.
