The Liverpool captain pulled up lame after trying to run down Mesut Ozil and was substituted off moments later

Jordan Henderson was forced off due to injury after just 10 minutes of Liverpool's Friday evening clash with Arsenal.

With the game scoreless at the time, the Liverpool captain attempted to chase down Mesut Ozil on an Arsenal counterattack only to pull up lame as he closed the attacker down.

Henderson limped on as play continued. He went down on the next stoppage and looked to be grabbing his hamstring.

He was replaced by James Milner.

Henderson has started 14 of Liverpool's Premier League games this season, scoring a goal and adding an assist.

The Reds captain had been restored to the starting line-up after being rested for Liverpool's 4-0 win over Bournemouth.

Liverpool, who entered the contest in fourth place in the Premier League, have a busy slate of fixtures upcoming.

Including the Arsenal constest, the Reds have four games between December 22 and January 1, with dates against Swansea City, Leicester City and Burnley over that span.

Jurgen Klopp should have Adam Lallana to call upon, though, after the midfielder made his latest comeback off the bench against Bournemouth.
