Liverpool confirmed Jordan Henderson has undergone an operation on the injury he sustained during last weekend’s Merseyside derby with Everton.
The midfielder was forced off half an hour into the Toffees’ first win at Anfield in 22 years and further investigation by the club’s medical team led to the 30-year-old having surgery.
He joins Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez and Fabinho on the sidelines.

“Henderson has successfully had a corrective procedure carried out on the adductor injury. He will begin a rehabilitation programme immediately,” Liverpool’s statement read.
“No specific timescale is being placed upon his return; however, the 30-year-old is ruled out initially until after the March international break.”
The midfielder’s return to full training will be dependent on how his rehabilitation progresses.
Henderson will miss games against Sheffield United, Chelsea, Fulham, RB Leipzig and Wolves. He could return in time to play Arsenal on April 3 – although even that game is likely to come too soon.
Liverpool travel to Sheffield United on Sunday hoping to put an end to their four-game losing streak in the league.
