JORDAN HENDERSON will discover today if he will need surgery on his groin.
If so, it would end his Liverpool season and put his Euro hopes in jeopardy.
Reds captain Henderson had scans on Monday on the injury suffered in the derby defeat to Everton.
There are genuine concerns that when the results come back today, an operation may be the only option.
And that could sideline him for 12 weeks.
That would be a hammer blow to injury-hit Liverpool.
It would also be a major worry for England boss Gareth Southgate.
It would mean Henderson, 30, will likely be unable to train fully until late May at the earliest.
