Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Jordan Henderson will have a scan on his knee on Friday.
Speaking to BT Sport after his side secured a 1-1 draw in the Europa League quarter-final against Borussia Dortmund, the enigmatic coach admitted that his captain's injury doesn't look good.
Henderson had to be replaced by Welshman Joe Allen at the interval and it appears that the midfielder could be set for a lengthy period on the sidelines.

With Liverpool hoping to climb the Premier League table and secure success in the Europa League, Henderson's injury will come as a major blow for the club.
It could also impact England boss Roy Hodgson, who appears to be a big fan of Henderson. The dynamic midfielder looked all but set to secure a place in Hodgson's squad for Euro 2016, but his participation in the tournament could now be in doubt. In truth, things will become far more clear after the player's scan.

Henderson's injury was an almighty blow for Klopp, but he would have been pleased with his side's showing at the home of his former club.
Belgium international Divock Origi, who replaced Daniel Sturridge in the starting XI, handed Liverpool the lead, but Mats Hummels equalised for Thomas Tuchel's side.
Ultimately, though, there really should be no underestimating Liverpool's fine result in Germany. Of course, the Merseyside outfit still have a great deal to do and won't be able to rest on their laurels in the second leg, but they will now believe that they can secure a place in the semi-final of the competition.
One thing is for sure, the atmosphere at Anfield should be electric next week and Liverpool stand every chance of making it a memorable evening.
It's clear for all to see that Klopp is starting to implement his philosophy at the club and things should only improve under his regime.
There's still a long way to go for the club, but they are most definitely heading in the right direction. With Klopp at the helm, the future looks extremely bright.
