Dietmar Hamann: Jordan Henderson a massive miss for Livepool

Former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann feels Jordan Henderson's suspension is a real blow to the Reds

Jordan Henderson will be a massive miss for Liverpool in their next three Premier League games, claims Dietmar Hamann.

The England international received a straight red for a dangerous challenge on Samir Nasri in injury time of Liverpool’s 3-2 victory over Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday.

It’s not good losing Henderson. He’s been a revelation

Henderson will miss next Sunday’s trip to Norwich City, as well as a home clash against title rivals Chelsea and a difficult trip to Tony Pulis’s Crysyal Palace outfit.

And Hamann feels it isn’t “all rosey” for Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool following Henderson’s dismissal and injury to star striker Daniel Sturridge.

“Jordan Henderson will be a massive miss,” Hamann told Sky Sports.

“He’s had a terrific season and scored a lot of goals. He gives them a lot of energy in the middle of the park.

Hamann continued: “A little bit of fatigue from Henderson. He jumps over the ball. I don’t think it is malicious but he goes over the top. It is a sending off and he misses three games.

“Liverpool don’t have the biggest squad. Allen is probably the one coming in. He did well yesterday. But not having Henderson, a guy who has played most of the games this year, is a blow to Liverpool.

“It’s not good losing Henderson. He’s been a revelation.”
