Jordan Henderson was forced to come off after just 29 minutes in Saturday’s Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton.

The England international has been used as one of Jurgen Klopp’s most dependable and versatile players this season so an injury at this point in the season will undoubtedly be a huge blow for the Anfield side.

However, aside from the individual misfortune of losing a player like Henderson, it now means that Liverpool have yet another key player missing from action and now stuck on a growing injury list.

But how many key players is Klopp now missing from his Liverpool squad?

The main problem for Klopp’s team this season has been the number of serious injuries his side have picked up in defence. The Liverpool manager lost Virgil van Dijk at the start of the season, along with fellow central defender Joe Gomez. Then, at the turn of the year, Joel Matip also picked up an injury that ruled him out for the remainder of the season.

In midfield, Klopp is also without central midfielder Naby Keita and Fabinho, with the latter often filling in as an extra central defender for much of the season like Henderson.

However, the injuries don't stop there. Along with the very obvious holes in Liverpool’s defence and midfield, Klopp has also had to spend much of the season without one of his most in-form attacking players Diogo Jota, who picked up a knee injury in mid December and hasn’t played since.

Whether Liverpool’s injuries have directly led to them underperforming in the Premier League this season is up for debate, but few could deny just how unfortunate they’ve been with injuries this season.
