Henderson doubt for Liverpool

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is a doubt to face his former club Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

The midfielder was forced off midway through the second half of Saturday's win over Manchester City with a heel problem, although it is not the same issue which has troubled the England international for the last 12 months.

Options for manager Jurgen Klopp include returning Adam Lallana to a deeper role and restoring Divock Origi to the starting line-up, or bringing in Lucas Leiva as the deep-lying midfielder.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Clyne, Lovren, Klavan, Milner, Can, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Mane, Origi, Firmino, Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Moreno, Lucas, Stewart, Ejaria, Sturridge, Woodburn, Ojo.

While Pickford completed the full 90 minutes of the 3-1 defeat at Manchester United he was in some discomfort after the match and was sent for scans. Former Arsenal keeper Vito Mannone is expected to fill the void left by Pickford's absence over the next two months.

The Italian started the season as the side's number one but fractured his elbow in August, opening the door for Pickford to stake his claim in impressive fashion.

Pickford has become a full England squad member under Gareth Southgate and has been linked with big money bids in January.
