UCL: Henderson, Robertson boost for Liverpool against Atletico Madrid

Jurgen Klopp has indicated that he expects Jordan Henderson and Andrew Robertson to be at his disposal for Liverpool’s Champions League second leg against Atletico Madrid.

Both players missed Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Bournemouth on Saturday, but they may return to action for Wednesday’s last-16 tie with Los Rojiblancos.

“What I hear, it should be possible [for both to return against Atletico],” Klopp told the press after the Bournemouth victory.

“Robbo should not be a problem; he only missed [Saturday] pretty much.

“He finished the session [on Friday] and afterwards felt something, but it was then nothing in the end.

“[Henderson] was out, I don’t know exactly in this moment, but I think he will train [on Sunday].

“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.”

Meanwhile, Alisson Becker is not expected to make the squad for the midweek encounter due to a hip injury.
