Jordan Henderson ruled out of Liverpool’s clash with Arsenal after picking up knock in win over Chelsea, paving the way for £25m new boy Thiago Alcantara to make his first start

  • Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson will miss Arsenal match on Monday night
  • His absence could see new signing Thiago Alcantara make his first club start

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson will miss Monday’s visit of Arsenal as he has not fully recovered from the knock which forced him off at half-time of Sunday’s win at Chelsea.

The absence of the England midfielder increases the chance of a first start for new signing Thiago Alcantara, who was Henderson’s replacement at Stamford Bridge.

‘We will see. We have a few days to train, some players have to recover from last night (the 7-2 Carabao Cup win over Lincoln), but he is in contention,’ said manager Jurgen Klopp.
