Addressing the  media ahead of Wednesday’s fixture, coach Brendan Rogers has given  the Super  Eagles’ forward a clean bill of health , revealing  that all the players who featured  against Everton  are available  for the game except Demarai Gray, who sat out Sunday’s victory as a precaution after showing flu symptoms over  the weekend.

“We had everyone in today recovering and a working group,” Rodgers said. “Demarai had flu over the course of the weekend so we’ll see how he is for Wednesday.”

With another seven fixtures to go in December, the Northern Irishman revealed he and his coaching team will evaluate the situation and the necessity to rotate over the festive period.

“Certainly, between now and then, we have to look at what is and isn’t possible,” he continued. “It helps when you’ve got one game a week, the team has rhythm.

“There’s no doubt that over these next few weeks, like every team, we have to consider how we want to play in order to bring energy and intensity in the games.”

Season over for Liverpool’s inspirational captain

Published

on

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson will play no further part in the champions’ bid for Premier League records with his knee injury ruling him out of the rest of the season.

Klopp confirmed that the skipper will not be able to feature again this campaign, but will not require surgery and should be fit again for next season.

He will also be there to lift the Premier League trophy against Chelsea on July 22 as the Reds finally end their 30-year wait to be crowned champions.

“Hendo is the best possible of all bad news: it is a knee injury but no surgery needed,” said Klopp. “He will not play any more in the latter stages of this season but I am pretty positive he will start with us the new season. It was an awful moment when he went down with injury. In Germany, we would call him an animal as he deals with pain so well.

“You saw he knew something happened which shouldn’t have happened. Everyone felt for him. It was a real mood killer.

“We were all concerned when we saw him going down and he left the pitch and when we got the news it was a big relief for all of us.

“It is not cool but it is the best we could get, Hendo is a quick healer and he will be back soon.

“But he deserves to lift the trophy and he will lift the trophy.”
