Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after suffering a knee injury.
Henderson sustained the injury during his side’s 1-1 draw with Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final on Thursday.
The 25-year-old underwent scans in Liverpool on Friday and it is understood that he has been diagnosed with an LCL injury, which will see him sidelined for six to eight weeks.
However, it has been confirmed that Henderson will not require surgery.
"Henderson's issue appears to be less serious and, provided all goes well with the midfielder's recovery programme, the time out of action could be limited to between six and eight weeks," a Liverpool statement said.
Henderson has suffered an injury-plagued season as he was out of action for four months earlier in the season due to a heel bone injury and metatarsal fracture.
As a result, the Liverpool captain has been limited to just 25 appearances in all competitions this season, where he has scored two goals and notched up three assists.
