Jürgen Klopp expects Jordan Henderson to return to full training on Sunday, meaning the captain could come into contention for the midweek Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid.
A hamstring injury sustained during the first leg of the last-16 tie at Estadio Metropolitano on February 18 has kept him out of Liverpool’s last four fixtures.
However, Henderson is closing in on a comeback and is set to step up his rehabilitation programme at Melwood tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Klopp is confident Andy Robertson will be available for the meeting with Atletico on Wednesday after he missed the victory over Bournemouth as a precaution.
The manager told his post-match press conference: “What I hear, it should be possible [for them to be available for Atletico]. If we then do it, I don’t know.
“Robbo should not be a problem; he only missed today pretty much.
“He finished the session yesterday and afterwards felt something, but it was then nothing in the end.
“Hendo was out, I don’t know exactly in this moment, but I think he will train tomorrow. If that looks good, I have to make a decision.
“For sure [it will be good to have him back] and some others as well.”
