London - Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson faces up to eight weeks on the sidelines after suffering a broken foot in training.

The 25-year-old was injured in one of his first training sessions since returning from the United States, where he had undergone a specialist procedure in an attempt to cure an ongoing heel problem.

Henderson is now expected to have surgery on Monday and will be unavailable for England's final Euro 2016 qualifiers against Estonia and Lithuania next month.

"Very disappointed and frustrated with the injury setback but will work hard to be back as quickly as possible," Henderson wrote on Twitter.

"Will be supporting the team in every way I can while I'm unable to play. Thanks for all of your support."

Liverpool host Norwich City on Sunday.

The match at Anfield gets underway at 17:00.
