Jordan Henderson will play no part against Fulham on Sunday, while Naby Keita will be assessed late on.

Jurgen Klopp confirmed in his press conference today that the skipper has not recovered in time from an ankle injury sustained against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.

On a more positive note, however, the boss revealed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is on the brink of a return to the first team squad.

“With Hendo we know now it is serious enough to rule him out for the weekend,” Klopp said, according to Sky Sports.

“The international break will be long enough to bring him back. It was a little one with the ankle. It was the best scan we could get but still not good enough. Not good but OK.

“Naby we have to see if he can train today. Checks were positive but we have to see if it stays positive.”

On Oxlade-Chamberlain’s return, Klopp added: “For sure after the international break he will be 100 per cent fit.”
