Jürgen Klopp has confirmed Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson will be available for this weekend's Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

Henderson missed the 2-0 midweek win over Napoli in Champions League action but is available for selection once again after making a swift recovery.

James Milner, however, will miss Sunday's visit to the capital after being placed in a concussion protocol having departed the game on Tuesday following the half-time interval.

"So, Hendo, yes, he's available," Klopp told his pre-match press conference.

"He trained yesterday completely normal so should be fine. He had a little thing but serious enough to not be involved in the last game."

On Milner, the boss said: "When you go through a concussion protocol you are not available for the next game because you have to go through different stages.

"So, he is fine but still that's how it is [and] rightly so. We have to go to different stages and that means he is available for non-contact training on Monday and full contact training on Tuesday if everything goes well.

"Until then that's what we expect because he was yesterday already good."
