Liverpool's Henderson, Mane could be back for Burnley clash

Captain Jordan Henderson is set to return to the side for Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday. The England midfielder missed Thursday’s 2-0 win over Leicester City due to a minor back problem.

“Hendo, yes, definitely will be back,” said Jurgen Klopp. “That's the plan. It was the plan before the game and is still the plan now. If nothing happens, he will play on Sunday.”

Sadio Mane is back at Kirkby following his Africa Cup of Nations celebrations with Senegal. The winger will train on Friday before Klopp decides whether he will start against Burnley.

“I assume Sadio will be in full training today and then we’ll make a decision after that on how he feels and all that stuff,” added Klopp.

"He will probably still be emotionally high-flying, but physically we have to see how intense the last few days were for him.”

Klopp confirmed that Joe Gomez and Divock Origi are fit and available after they didn't make the matchday squad against Leicester.

He said: “For Joe, it was the situation, do we want to have a second centre-half on the bench or not? Div is not too long back in training after his injury so that was the decision there. But both will train fully.”
