Jordan Henderson posts snap of Switzerland ahead of Sion v Liverpool
Jordan Henderson was soaking up the sights in Switzerland ahead of Liverpool’s clash against Sion on Thursday night.
The Reds can finish top of Group B in the Europa League if Jurgen Klopp’s side manage to secure at least a point at Sion.
Liverpool captain Henderson dropped to the bench for the Reds’s 2-0 loss to Newcastle United at St James’s Park on Sunday.
However, the former Sunderland man could be in line to face the Swiss side in their final Europa League group-stage game.
And Henderson was impressed with the scenary on offer in Switzerland ahead of Liverpool’s 18:00 BST kick-off against Sion.
Sion v Liverpool: Match facts
• Sion earned a 1-1 draw at Liverpool on matchday two, in what was Brendan Rodgers’ final European game in charge of the Reds.
• Roy Evans’ Liverpool eliminated Alberto Bigon’s Sion in the 1996/97 Uefa Cup Winners’ Cup second round, winning 2-1 in Switzerland and 6-3 at Anfield.
• Sion were the first visiting team to score three times in a European fixture at Anfield; only FC Barcelona (1-3, 2001), Chelsea FC (1-3, 2009), Udinese Calcio (2-3, 2012) and Real Madrid CF (0-3, 2014) have done so since.
• Those meetings with Liverpool are Sion’s only previous matches against English opponents.
• Liverpool’s 13 outings against Swiss sides have ended W6 D5 L2 (W3 D1 L2 in Switzerland).
Henderson has yet to make an appearance in the Europa League this season after a string of injury problems.
