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.
