Jordan Henderson will be walking a disciplinary tightrope in Liverpool’s Champions League quarter-final clash with Manchester City at Anfield on Wednesday night.
If the Reds skipper picks up a booking then he will be suspended for next Tuesday’s second leg at the Etihad.
Henderson has collected two yellow cards in the Champions League so far this season and a third triggers an automatic one-ban ban.Team-mate Alberto Moreno, who is likely to be on the bench, finds himself in the same situation.
Manchester City trio Danilo, Fernandinho and Ilkay Gundogan are all one yellow card away from missing the second leg.
With Adam Lallana sidelined by a hamstring injury and Emre Can still battling to overcome a back problem, Liverpool can ill afford to lose Henderson for next week’s return game against Pep Guardiola’s side.Wednesday night’s referee is Felix Brych. The German official took charge of Liverpool’s thrilling 3-3 draw with Sevilla in the group stage back in November.
