Cape Town - Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson will miss this weekend’s Merseyside derby after failing to recover from his troublesome foot injury.

Henderson has been sidelined for the last five weeks after sustaining the problem in training last month.

Jurgen Klopp had hoped that the England international would be fit for Saturday’s clash with Everton, but he is yet to return to training and will remain on the treatment table.

It leaves Klopp facing a headache in midfield for the derby, with Adam Lallana sidelined by a thigh problem picked up on international duty.

However, Daniel Sturridge has returned to training after recovering from the hip problem sustained last month.

Sturridge hasn’t played since Liverpool’s defeat at relegation-threatened Hull City, but could be on the bench at Anfield.

Brazilian pair Coutinho and Roberto Firminho are both expected to be involved too after returning to full training following their appearances in the World Cup qualifiers.

Meanwhile Everton have injury problems of their own as they make the short trip to Anfield without defender Seamus Coleman, who broke his leg in horrific circumstances while playing for the Republic of Ireland last week.

Coleman is likely to be out for between nine and 12 months after his tibia and fibula bones were broken in an awful challenge by Wales defender Neil Taylor during the 0-0 draw in Dublin.

Kick off is at 13:30.
