Liverpool send Henderson and Lallana to States as they target injury returns

Date Posted,April 1, 2017

Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana have flown to Miami in a bid to be fit for Liverpool’s run-in.

Both players missed the Merseyside derby victory over Everton on Saturday due to injury problems.

Henderson has been out for a month with a foot problem while Lallana picked up a thigh strain during the international break, reports the Liverpool Echo.

Lallana faces up to a month on the sidelines, while Henderson is expected to miss the games with Bournemouth and Stoke at the very least.

The captain has not featured since the win over Tottenham on February 11, with Jurgen Klopp admitting last week that he had suffered a setback in his recovery. He had originally been pencilled in to return for Saturday’s Merseyside derby with Everton.

Henderson missed a large part of last season with a heel issue, at one stage flying to New Jersey for specialist treatment as part of his rehabilitation.

There is no suggestion at this stage that this trip to the USA is of a similar nature, or that any medical treatment or visits are planned, more a change of scenery as he and Lallana look to prepare themselves for what will be a crucial last eight games this season.
