Liverpool Vs Burnley: Klopp Confirms Double Fitness Boost

Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara should be available for Liverpool against Burnley on Saturday.

Boss Jurgen Klopp revealed Henderson and Thiago could return to action after playing in a behind-closed-doors game against Aston Villa this week.

Both midfielders missed out at Carrow Road last week having returned late to pre-season after their involvement at Euro 2020.

“They're much closer. They look fine. Now we have to make a decision,” Klopp said. “They looked really good in the game and this week in training. It's now up to me to make some decisions.”

Liverpool's 68-game unbeaten home run in the Premier League was ended in a 1-0 defeat to Burnley in January last season, but Klopp insisted it would have no bearing on Saturday's match.

Klopp said he was excited by the return of fans to Anfield and was not looking for “revenge” against Sean Dyche's side.
