Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has provided fitness updates on Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum.

Both players missed yesterday’s match against West Ham United at London Stadium, as Liverpool felt big problems in the center with Fabinho and Naby Keita. The latest has become one of the most criticized players alongside with another midfielder Adam Lallana.

Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com (via LiverpoolECHO): “Gini and Hendo, both would’ve played and then they cannot play. That’s not too cool, I don’t know how long it will take,”

“That’s the situation, that was always clear. It’s a long season and you have to deal with the situation.

“When players are in, all the players are there, then you maybe have a bit of a headache making the line-up, who wants to start, who you leave out. If you don’t have them that makes line-ups easier, but it leaves you short of options.

“We had a pretty young bench tonight and two strikers, a left-back – that doesn’t help in a game like this now. So it’s like it is. We have to deal with situations like that.

Boss has also spoken out on Joe Gomez, who underwent surgery days ago.

“Yes [it’s a blow for him] but now he had the surgery already and now he is on the way back, that’s how it is.

“It was an important one and a good one [and] all the signs now are positive, so now we know round about when he will be back, but that’s not for the moment.”
