Reds boss Jurgen Klopp believes that it is possible that both Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson will be available for Liverpool’s Champions League clash against Atletico Madrid this week.

Henderson, who has been terrific for Liverpool this season, was forced off the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium pitch against the Spanish giants in the first leg due to a hamstring injury.

Henderson has missed the last four matches Liverpool have played in as a result. Robertson has only missed Liverpool’s 2-1 Premier League victory over Bournemouth at Anfield yesterday.

The second leg, which takes places on March 11 at Anfield, is a big game for the Reds. Klopp’s side lost the first leg 1-0, which means there is plenty to do at Anfield.

The positive news is that Klopp believes that it is possible that both Henderson and Robertson will be available for the clash.

As quoted by LiverpoolFC.com, Klopp said: “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.”

This is a major boost for Klopp’s side. Liverpool have seriously missed Henderson in the last four matches.

Robertson is also a massive inclusion. Not playing against Bournemouth might do him some good, as he has appeared a bit tired as of late.
