Liverpool medics fear Jordan Henderson will not be fit to travel to Monday's game against Arsenal after aggravating a foot injury against Bournemouth, reports ESPN.

The 25-year-old was given a pain killing injection before Monday's 1-0 win over the Cherries but was forced to come off after just 52 minutes.

Initial concern was that the Liverpool captain had broken a bone in his foot and could be set for a long spell on the sidelines. He was sent for a scan on Tuesday and doctors await the results.

While staff in the Melwood medical facility do not believe that Henderson has broken any bones, there is concern that playing him against the Gunners would run significant risk of causing further damage.

As a result, the midfielder could find himself travelling to the Emirates as a spectator in what would be a significant blow for Brendan Rodgers.

First real test

Liverpool sit joint top of the Premier League table after two wins in their opening two games, but they have looked far from convincing thus far.

They only beat Stoke City courtesy of a late stunner from Philippe Coutinho while a controversial goal was all that separated them from Premier League new boys Bournemouth.

A trip to Arsenal represents a serious challenge for Liverpool, who will be hoping to show their top four credentials with a solid performance against Arsene Wenger's men.

Doing so without their captain will make the task harder, but the Gunners have looked far from convincing themselves, losing 2-0 to West Ham in their opening game and sneaking past Crystal Palace last weekend.


Do Liverpool need Jordan Henderson to beat Arsenal next weekend?
