- Story Text: Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been ruled out of the rest of the Premier League champions' campaign after the midfielder sustained a knee injury in their midweek win at Brighton & Hove Albion, manager Juergen Klopp said on Friday (July 10).
Klopp was forced to withdraw Henderson 10 minutes from full-time in the 3-1 win after a collision with Yves Bissouma but the German said the 30-year-old does not require surgery.
Liverpool, who are on 92 points with four games remaining, are on course to break Manchester City's record haul of 100 points and face Burnley on Saturday.
