Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is out for the rest of the season due to a knee injury.
The England midfielder limped out of a 3-1 victory at Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday after damaging his left knee in a challenge with Yves Bissouma.
At a Friday news conference, Klopp revealed Henderson will play no further part in the champions' bid to break Manchester City's record Premier League points tally of 100.
The former Sunderland man will not require surgery, however and his manager is optimistic he will be fit for the start of the 2020-21 season.
Klopp said: "Best possible news. It's a knee injury, but no surgery is required.
