Jurgen Klopp has said that Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita are both fit to play against Fulham on Sunday. Henderson missed Liverpool’s last four matches due to an Achilles injury while Keita missed the last four matches due to a muscular improvement.
However, Klopp has said that all his midfielders except Alex-Oxlaide Chamberlain are fit. With almost all of Liverpool’s midfielders fit, Klopp will have a major selection dilemma.
Klopp said, “When Jordan is not available we always miss him. It’s good to have them back, it’s probably the first time all the midfielders, apart from Ox are available. That means it’s another thing to do, who starts with who. It’s about form, fitness, shape.”
Defender Joe Gomez also had issues with his Achilles tendon but both him and Henderson are in England’s squad for their matches against USA and Croatia. When asked if Klopp would talk with England manager Gareth Southgate about Gomez and Henderson, he replied, “That’s nothing to discuss in public to be honest. We’ll see how we deal with that, it’s different with the two boys. If there is something to talk about I would talk to Gareth.”
Liverpool are currently third in the Premier League table behind Manchester City and Chelsea. They will hope to continue their unbeaten run in the Premier League tomorrow when they play Fulham.
