Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp delivered a positive update on Jordan Henderson’s condition following the Reds’ 2-1 win away at Fulham.
The Merseysiders secured a narrow win against relegation-threatened counterparts at Craven Cottage, as goals from Sadio Mane and James Milner helped the Reds back to the top of the table.
The west London club threatened to put the team’s title hopes in jeopardy when former Liverpool star Ryan Babel equalised after Virgil van Dijk and Alisson’s mutual error at the back, but the 18-times English champions ran out victorious eventually.
Jurgen Klopp did not have Jordan Henderson available for selection ahead of London trip, with the England midfielder having suffered an ankle injury in midweek.
The Englishman was forced off in the first half of the 3-1 win away at Bayern Munich on Wednesday, raising concerns that he could face an extended spell on the sidelines.
However, Jurgen Klopp was optimistic about the captain’s condition and insisted that he is set to join up with the Three Lions squad for their international break in the coming weeks.
As quoted by the Liverpool Echo, the 51-year-old said: “Yeah, it’s Hendo and Hendo will go to the national team. I think he will have two or three days at Melwood with his rehab.
“But it looks positive, and I think he is in contact with Gareth [Southgate] that when he can train, he goes to the national team. It was not that serious. And now in three or four days, he should be fine.”
