Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson is in a race against time in order to be fit when his side come to the Emirates Stadium on Monday with the midfielder struggling due to a foot injury, the Mirror reports.
Henderson was withdrawn shortly after half-time in Liverpool’s narrow win against Bournemouth and the report suggests that he’s a ‘major’ doubt for our clash against the Merseyside club.
According to Brendan Rodgers, this problem has been troubling Henderson for some time and he required pain-killing injections in order to get through the game on Monday night.

“He was taking some painkillers with it, and did ever so well to even be out on the field,” Rodgers was quoted as saying.
Henderson has taken over from Steven Gerrard as Liverpool’s skipper and after James Milner’s arrival, Rodgers seems like he’s building his new-look team around the England duo.
Should Henderson miss the game, he will most likely be replaced by Emre Can and the Reds will certainly want revenge for what was a mauling the last time they visited N5.
Arsene Wenger will want us to kickstart our home form and with a big club visiting the home of football next, the players must be focused for the game.
