A selection of the latest stories involving Liverpool Football Club this Monday morning.

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has added to the injury worries the club has after limping out of training for England ahead of the national side's qualifier with Switzerland this evening.

Henderson hurt his right ankle and is now a doubt for tonight's game in Basel - but what will be a more pressing concern for the Reds is that he is the second player to have suffered an injury during England duty.

Daniel Sturridge limped out of training following England's 1-0 win over Norway with a thigh injury and has since returned to Melwood for scans and treatment - which could keep him out for the Reds' Champions League opener against Ludogorets at Anfield in eight days time - with some reports suggesting a three week spell on the sidelines.

One Liverpool player who will be taking part in tonight's game is Raheem Sterling - who seems to be a key part of both his club and national side.

The teenager is likely to line up in the number 10 role for the Three Lions according to the Daily Mirror in the absence of Sturridge.

England manager Roy Hodgson spoke of the unfortunate situation of losing Sturridge, saying: “Daniel was unbelievably devastated by it, so it was a tough pill... so I’m disappointed, but we still have the players there."

Lazar Markovic was part of the Serbia side that drew 1-1 against France last night - with the 20-year-old playing 86 minutes of their qualifier.
