Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp revealed that captain Jordan Henderson and midfielder Thiago are closing in on a return to action. the duo arrived late for training after they were involved in Euro 2020. Both players missed last weekend’s game against Norwich and are set to miss out against Burnley this weekend. He did say there was a chance they could feature this weekend.
“They are much closer, yes. They look fine, now we have to make the decision,” Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said about Jordan Henderson. “They looked really good in the game and looked good in the training week, so it’s up to me to make some decisions. “Usually when you sign for Liverpool one of the first two or three things you are waiting for is your first game at Anfield to feel and to experience that atmosphere.”
“Football is only possible to enjoy when you play in a positive way when you just go for it,” he added. “There are no guarantees out there, not at all, especially not against Burnley because they can make your life really uncomfortable. They defend well and have really good footballers on the team. Sean is doing a brilliant job there. He sets them up so they are not only annoying, good set pieces, all this kind of stuff. They have a clear way of playing, so that’s what we prepare for – not any kind of revenge or whatever.”
