Injury update: Gini and Hendo likely not fit for Bournemouth visit

So that's more great news you can add to the growing list of things currently depressing Reds fans.

It was apparently a couple of last-minute injuries that ruled both Gini Wijnaldum and captain Jordan Henderson last night, with Adam Lallana and Naby Keita being drafted in to replace them at London Stadium. It did not go well in their absence.

Speaking to following last night's match, Jurgen said: "Gini and Hendo, both would’ve played and then they cannot play. That’s not too cool, I don’t know how long it will take.

"That’s the situation, that was always clear. It’s a long season and you have to deal with the situation.

"When players are in, all the players are there, then you maybe have a bit of a headache making the line-up, who wants to start, who you leave out. If you don’t have them that makes line-ups easier, but it leaves you short of options.

"We had a pretty young bench tonight and two strikers, a left-back - that doesn’t help in a game like this now. So it’s like it is. We have to deal with situations like that.

"We got a point and it’s a very positive sign, I would say, if you are disappointed about a point at West Ham. But it’s still a point, and let’s carry on."

Doesn't sound too positive, with regards them being available, does it? Hopefully, at least one of them will be fit to line-up against Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

Gini may still be out for the weekend game
