Andy Robertson and Jordan Henderson injury updates given by Jurgen Klopp
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has provided an injury update on key pair Andy Robertson and Jordan Henderson after both missed the win over Bournemouth.
The Reds came from behind at Anfield thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane to win 2-1 and move a massive 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
Klopp’s side got back to winning ways despite missing Robertson and Henderson, with both being ruled out with injury.
But the boss is hoping to have both back in time for Wednesday’s Champions League last-16 second leg against Atletico Madrid.
Following the win, 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 after 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 decision.
“For sure [will be good to have him back] and some others as well.”

Callum Wilson had put the Cherries ahead on Saturday with Liverpool having gone into the clash having lost their last two matches in all competitions.
But Klopp was pleased with the way his team bounced back from that slight wobble.
He added: “I was in good spirits, let me say it like this.
“I was absolutely happy about the result, the three points and the performance because I knew it would be tricky for different reasons.

“I think the decisions of the ref around the goals made it even more tricky for us, obviously.
“We wanted to fight back before the game and after that we had to fight back. How we played after being 1-0 down was exceptional, to be honest.
"I don’t want to make it too big but in a moment when you have to fight back for the momentum and then you get a decision like that and a goal like this, there are other teams in the history of football which would then slip. The boys’ reaction today, I loved – I really loved."
