In a season marked by injuries and losses, the absence of the Liverpool captain is the latest blow to Jürgen Klopp.
Since undergoing groin surgery, Jordan Henderson has been ruled out for at least five weeks.
Henderson will miss a minimum of five Liverpool matches as well as three England games at the end of March. He was injured during last Saturday’s defeat by Everton.
“Henderson has successfully had a corrective procedure carried out on the adductor injury,” the club said. “He will begin a rehabilitation programme immediately.
“No specific timescale is being placed upon his return; however, the 30-year-old is ruled out initially until after the March international break.”
