English champions Liverpool confirms captain Jordan Henderson injured for rest of season


Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp confirmed that the club captain Jordan Henderson will not play for the rest of this season due to his knee injury.
Jordan Henderson was carried off the pitch during Liverpool 3-1 win over Brighton following a collision with Yves Bissouma.
"Hendo is the best possible of all bad news -- it is a knee injury but no surgery needed but he will not play any more in the latter stages of this season but I am pretty positive he will start with us the new season," said Klopp.
They have 92 points, eight short of Manchester City's record of 100 points from two seasons ago, with four games to play.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Klopp revealed that the skipper would still be the man to lift the Premier League trophy.
"It was an awful moment when he went down with injury," he said "You saw he knew something happened which shouldn't have happened.
"It was a real mood-killer. He deserves to lift the trophy and he will lift the trophy."
In their next match fixtures, Liverpool, will  host Burnley on Saturday, are on course for a record points tally.
