Liverpool injury news: Official website posts latest details on four key players | Football | Sport

Liverpool take on Fulham on Sunday looking to get back to winning ways after Tuesday’s Champions League horror show against Red Star Belgrade.

The Reds were stunned 2-0 in Serbia as Milan Pavkov fired a first half double.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were held to a 1-1 draw last time out against Arsenal in the Premier League.

The German has confirmed that Jordan and Henderson will both return to the squad to bolster his midfield options ahead of Sunday.

Joe Gomez has also passed a fitness test and will be available.

“It’s good to have them back, it’s probably the first time that all midfield players apart from Ox are available,” said Klopp in his pre-match press conference.

Dejan Lovren is also expected to be a part of the squad as he recovers from illness that ruled him out of the midweek Champions League defeat.

“That’s another thing to do, making decisions, who starts with who, stuff like that,” Klopp added.

“It’s all about then fitness level, form, shape, whatever and then we will see.”

Xherdan Shaqiri is expected to start the game after he was left at home for the trip to Serbia following fears of the reception he would receive.

In recent weeks Liverpool have lacked creativity in midfield meaning the £13.5m is likely to be called upon against Fulham.

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic is in severe danger of losing his job after his side slumped to a 1-0 defeat at Huddersfield on Monday night meaning they’re now bottom of the table.

They come into the match on the back of six straight defeats and there is a real concern they face an uphill battle to beat the drop.

But Jokanovic will be keen to try and inflict more misery on Liverpool, who have won three of their last nine matches.

“Liverpool are coming off a defeat and they are hurt, but we are more than triple hurt than they are,” Jokanovic said in his pre-match press conference.

“They will show a different image than the one they showed in Belgrade.

“We must put in triple effort and I expect my players are going to fight to make our supporters proud. If we’re confused, scared and play like kids, it won’t be easy.”
