UCL: Huge Fitness Boost For Liverpool Ahead Of Atletico Madrid Clash

Fitness Liverpool Atletico Madrid Clash

Jordan Henderson is most likely going to be fit for Liverpool's clash with Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

The England international hasn't played since suffering a grade two hamstring strain during the first leg meeting when Jurgen Klopp's European champions were beaten in the Spanish capital last month.

Henderson's absence coincided with Liverpool's worst run of form all season as they went on to lose back-to-back games against Watford in the league and Chelsea in the FA Cup.

The Reds captain came through a training session at Melwood on Sunday unscathed to give Klopp a major boost ahead of Wednesday's clash with Los Rojiblancos at Anfield.

Henderson will continue to be closely monitored by Liverpool ‘s medical staff and will be involved in Tuesday's open session if there are no negative reactions to the injury.

Should the  29-year-old skipper come through that workout without any issues, he will be under serious consideration for a return to the Reds team.

Andy Robertson is also expected to return after sitting out Saturday's visit from Bournemouth as a precaution.

The Scotland captain was replaced by James Milner at left-back but is likely to be involved when Diego Simeone's men visit Merseyside for the last-16 second leg.
