Jurgen Klopp confirms duo will be fit to face Tottenham

Liverpool will be desperate to climb back to the top of the table with a win when they take on Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday afternoon.

Ahead of the game, the Red’s boss Jurgen Klopp has provided full team news and injury update including the latest on the fitness of Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com:

“With Hendo, we made a further assessment and we know now that it’s serious enough probably to rule him out for the weekend and the international break will be long enough hopefully to bring him back. It’s a little one with the ankle, how it looked in the first place. It was the best scan we could get, I would say, but still not good enough. It’s not good but OK,”

“Naby, we have to see if he can train today. The boys come in a bit later today. [He had] a couple of checks – it was positive until now but we have to see if it stays positive when he goes outside.

“Oxlade, I heard nothing new about it so there’s no rush now. Of course not for the weekend anyway, but in general after the international break, he will be 100 per cent fit.”
