Liverpool receive double injury boost ahead of Atletico Madrid return leg

Liverpool have received a double injury boost with the news that Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson should be available for the Champions League showdown against Atletico Madrid.

Henderson is set to return to training on Sunday as he looks to get himself on the team sheet for Wednesday's Anfield clash against Atletico, who lead 1-0 from the first leg.

The Liverpool skipper has been sidelined since suffering a hamstring injury in the first leg of the last-16 tie last month.

And Robertson should be available to return after being kept out of Liverpool's 2-1 Premier League win over Bournemouth on Saturday, according to manager Jurgen Klopp.

"What I hear, it should be possible," said Klopp in quotes reported by the Evening Standard , when asked whether Henderson and Robertson would play on Wednesday. "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.”
