Liverpool's Jordan Henderson remains a doubt to face Arsenal - Jurgen Klopp

LEICESTER -- Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Jordan Henderson is a major doubt for Saturday's game against Arsenal.

The Liverpool captain missed the 3-1 defeat at Leicester City on Monday with a foot injury suffered in training.

Scans revealed that Henderson has not suffered a broken foot, but his manager is uncertain when he will be able to return.

When asked whether the midfielder would be absent for the long-term future, Klopp told a news conference: "What means long term?

"I have no idea. It looks like that [he] will not be ready for Arsenal. That's how it looks. I'm not sure. We will see."

Emre Can deputised for Henderson in the deep-lying midfield role in the defeat to a managerless Leicester, with Henderson missing just his second Premier League match of the season.

Liverpool welcome Arsene Wenger's side to Anfield on Saturday evening, hoping to get their quest to finish in the top four back on track.
