Jordan Henderson Injury Update Has Emerged Ahead Of Aston Villa Clash

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was called-up into Gareth Southgate's England squad, despite missing the last two fixtures for his club.

And Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Henderson is injury free and in line for a Premier League return this weekend.

But it’s all eyes back on their push to retain the title, as they face Aston Villa on Sunday.

“He will be part of parts of training today,” Klopp confirmed.

“He has absolutely no muscle issues, he's not injured any more. Now we have to make sure he can make the next step. What that means for the weekend, I don't know.

“I was in close contact with Gareth Southgate and it is clear that he will use the time with national team for getting match fit.”

Whether he plays against Villa or not, Klopp has confirmed he will joined the England squad, as he continues to build up his match fitness.

“Hendo had four or five days normal pre-season before he played his first game for us because of the situation we were in,” Klopp explained.

“He played against Chelsea and got this little injury, which was not serious, but he has been working on his physical things already for a few days but now (it will be) more football specific with us and then the national team.
