Liverpool have been handed a massive boost heading into their Premier League clash against Fulham at Anfield on Sunday with Jordan Henderson available for selection following a hamstring injury.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference, manager Jurgen Klopp told reporters and Liverpool’s official club website: “It’s good to have them [Henderson and Naby Keita] back, it’s probably the first time that all midfield players apart from Ox are available.
“When Jordan is not available we always miss him,” the Liverpool boss added.
After a shock defeat in the Champions League away at Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday night where the midfield played particularly poor, Klopp will be delighted to welcome Henderson and Keita back into the fold.
And while Henderson may not be the flashiest of midfielders, he still brings a lot to the team when he does play.
Have a look at what Liverpool supporters are saying on their club captain’s return from injury below…
What a relief Henderson will be back! Hendo may not be the best in the world, but certainly better right now than most @LFC midfielders. Those serial England call ups too, are not a fluke

Really good to have both of them back. We need a statement performance against the cottagers. #lfc

It's funny because when he's playing we say how bad he is yet we do worse when he isn't playing
