Liverpool's Jordan Henderson out for around three weeks with injury

Jordan Henderson will be out for around three weeks with a hamstring injury suffered during Liverpool's Champions League defeat at Atlético Madrid, according to Jürgen Klopp.

The Reds' skipper limped off in Tuesday's 1-0 loss to Atletico Madrid, after suffering a hamstring injury. But he will be out for, I think, three weeks or so, which is not cool.

Henderson's absence is an undoubted blow for Liverpool, considering his vast influence this season.

The visit of West Ham United to Anfield on Monday night in the Premier League is next up on the schedule, with Klopp viewing the fixture as an opportunity for his side to get quickly back on track.

After the game, Klopp accused his opponents of play-acting and trying to provoke striker Sadio Mane to be sent off.

He said on Friday: ' I spoke to him this morning, I asked was he surprised and he said "yes". We need Sadio to be physical. "We will see, but not because of the Atletico game". They didn't have a lot of possession obviously, so I wouldn't expect that they go for much more possession against us. You cannot avoid situations, but the one they created a minute before half-time, with eight players around him pushing him in the ref's direction, I didn't believe we could finish the game with eleven if we kept him on the pitch. He was exceptional again, caused problems and I would have loved to have him on the pitch.

Now, former Arsenal manager Wenger has openly admitted that he can see Liverpool FC finishing the season without losing a game in the Premier League - and he feels that they can even surpass the Gunners' famous 49-game unbeaten run. Nobody thought, "But in the league we are like this".

"But to put it right is to get the other feeling back, the other feeling I don't think we have lost, about how a win feels".

"[The West Ham game] is to put things right, just not in the [same] competition", Klopp told a pre-match news conference on Friday. It's from sunshine to hardest rain.

"It's about putting things right". If you really want to be successful and if you could be successful - what we could have been in that game - then it has to feel really bad and that's how it felt.
