Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says captain Jordan Henderson will miss the game against Leicester City on Sunday.

Klopp gave an update on his squad's injury situation following the international break, and has excluded Henderson from playing against The Foxes.

Speaking in his pre-game press conference, Klopp said: "We will see, [but] Hendo not and Trent [Alexander-Arnold] not, that’s clear. All the rest we will see.

“They are in a good way, Alex [Oxlade-Chamberlain] is in a good way. They are all closer but we will see if it is close enough for the weekend.”

When asked about the return of Mohamed Salah, Klopp replied: "He is probably back today, that’s all I’ve heard.

“We are obviously in close contact with him all of the time and, how it always is in these cases, in the moment when you have a negative test then the process really starts. He’s in a good place, he feels well, no symptoms, so that is all fine.”

Klopp then gave an update on defender Joe Gomez, who will miss the remainder of the season due to picking up a serious knee injury.

Klopp said: “It is a tough one but the surgery was successful, so he is now already recovering first from the surgery and then starting the rehabilitation.

“He is with his family, so he is in the best possible place I would say. That’s it, pretty much. Rehab has started now. After surgery you count from that moment backwards and we help as much as we can, but for the first few days all of the boys after surgery probably feel pretty alone. But when you have your family around – and that’s the case for him – then it’s as good as possible, that’s it.”

Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho will also be monitored ahead of the game on Sunday.
