Gerrard and Lucas Injury, Henderson Ready Pikul Responsibility Bigger
Liverpool – Liverpool vice captain Jordan Henderson expressed readiness to bear greater responsibility, along with injuries to captain Steven Gerrard and Lucas Leiva – which undoubtedly has affected the midfield ‘The Red’.
Gerrard is expected must be pulled up to three weeks due to a hamstring injury. While Lucas seems to be a spectator for the duration doubled due to a thigh injury.
“Losing Lucas is a big blow because he has been so incredible for us since he played in the team as a defensive midfielder,” said Henderson in the Liverpool Echo.
“Of course, Stevie (Gerrard) is also a great loss although not as long as it seems (Lucas), but there are big parties that will be present with him may not have been able to perform.
“But this is also an opportunity for other players to perform and show their ability in the team. Hopefully someone can do it. Maybe I should take more responsibility in the absence of these two players,” he said.
In the remainder of the month of February, Liverpool will face Crystal Palace in the FA Cup, face Besiktas in two Europa League games, as well as against Southampton in the Premier League. While on the first day of March, Anfield Gank will host Manchester City are also in the Premier League event.
