Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson will miss the Merseyside derby against Everton tomorrow.

The England international picked up the injury in the win over Newcastle on Wednesday and is awaiting the results of tests to find out how long his recovery will take.

“We’re still waiting for the result. He’s definitely out, but we don’t know for how long,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said.

The Reds have bolstered their midfield with the signing of Arthur Melo on loan from Juventus, but the Brazilian is still not booked and will not feature in the match at Goodison Park.

“I was really happy with Artur’s transfer. My information is that he will not be cleared to play until tomorrow, I hope he will be available for the meeting with Napoli next week,” Klopp added.

Diogo Jota has resumed training and is expected to play, but Thiago Alcantara and Ibrahima Konate remain out of the squad.

Striker Darwin Nunes will return to the team after serving his three-match suspension for his red card in the 1:1 draw with Crystal Palace, BTA informs.

Klopp described the return of Nunes and Jota as “like a Christmas present”.
