Now even Henderson is injured and Klopp warns: It doesn't look good

Liverpool is sliding deeper and deeper down the massive hole of problems. Not only is the club facing an incredible injury crisis with its centre-backs, but now the results are abysmal too. To add to the issues, a makeshift centre-back Jordan Henderson exited the game against Everton due to an injury. Now, the manager Jurgen Klopp commented that it too doesn't look benign.

The midfielder was starting in the defensive line because of many injuries and left the game in the 30th minute due to an injury. He was replaced by the inexperienced Nathaniel Phillips after appearing to sustain a muscle injury.

"It’s the groin, adductor region. It doesn’t look good but we have to wait for the scan tomorrow hopefully."

Henderson joins Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez and Fabinho on Liverpool's injury list. The club brought in two central defenders Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies this winter and it seems that they are going to form a defensive partnership right away. While Phillips and Rhys Williams are going to be in the rotation as well.

The Reds have won just two of their last 11 league games, and the 2:0 defeat at home versus Everton is a huge blemish. With it, Liverpool have lost four consecutive home league games for the first time since December 1923! They are also the first reigning top-flight champion to lose four consecutive home league games since Everton in the 1928/1929 season.

This defeat ended Everton's run of 23 visits to Anfield without a win in all competitions (D10 L13) since a 1-0 victory in September of 1999!

Former Reds captain Graeme Souness didn't hide his disappointment in the team and questioned their energy output and their aggression.

"I think it is a shadow of the team Liverpool have been for three years. Now everyone wants to play against them, they are an easy touch. That hurts me, to say that," stated Souness.
