Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that captain Jordan Henderson is “fine” after picking up a knee injury against Burnley on Sunday.
The midfielder struggled at times during the 1-0 win at Turf Moor and suffered a cut to his knee before eventually being taken off before the hour mark.
However, Klopp suggested that his skipper should be in contention to take part in Wednesday’s Champions League last-16 first leg against Inter Milan at San Siro.
“Hendo is fine. He got a knock on his knee and today was second-day recovery for a lot of players like for him as well, so it was not the longest session for him,” he told reporters.
“But apart from that, there are no issues really. He was back last week and the knee in the game was definitely not comfortable, it’s a proper wound, you can really see it – it looks like lips, it should not be there. Apart from that, he is fine.”
Liverpool have won their last six games across all competitions and are unbeaten in nine outings so far this calendar year.
