The three players who are now out of the injury room are Naby Keita, Jordan Henderson and Joe Gomez and will all be available for Liverpool’s weekend meeting with Fulham at An field.
Although Jurgen Klopp refused to be drawn on Gareth Southgate’s decision to include the latter pair in his most recent England squad, despite their recent fitness concerns.
According to standard.co.uk, Henderson has been sidelined since sustaining a hamstring injury during last month’s 1-0 win at Huddersfield, while Gomez has been managing an Achilles issue during recent games.
Asked about their latest call-up to the Three Lions squad, Klopp said:
On the ground of defeat in the Champions League just few days ago Henderson’s return appears to be a timely one in the aftermath of a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League on Tuesday.“It’s actually nothing to discuss in public, to be honest.
“We’ll see how we deal with that. If there’s something to talk about then I’ll talk with Gareth - it’s better than telling you and he has to read it.
“For the weekend, they are all available.”
The Reds coach was optimistic that things would have been to their favour if his captain was available for selection in the Serbian capital
“When Jordan is not available, we always miss him. I would love to say that Hendo would have changed the whole game [against Red Star] but I’m not really sure about that.
“The whole game was strange and not us. And the game before that, Arsenal, was an absolutely OK game.
“We only have to admit that Arsenal - and maybe a few people were surprised - are a good football team and can cause you problems.
“We caused them problems, we were 1-0 up, we had big chances and didn’t score and so 1-1, that’s all. But nothing to do with players in or out, it’s just like it was.
“It’s good to have them back; it’s probably the first time that all midfield players apart from Ox are available.
“It’s another thing to do, making decisions who starts with who and stuff like that, but then it’s all about fitness level, form, shape, whatever.”
