Liverpool boss Klopp confirms Henderson to face Tranmere Rovers

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says skipper Jordan Henderson will feature in tonight's friendly at Tranmere Rovers.

Henderson has been out of action since February with a foot injury.

But Klopp appears confident that the 27-year-old will be fit and ready for the new campaign.

When asked if he'll be playing at Prenton Park tonight, Klopp said: “Yes… nobody has told me anything else!

“I think he always played when he was fit.

“So unless the medical department comes to me and tells me to rest him a little bit [he might not play] but they first would have to explain this to Hendo… and if they pass him and he accepts this, they will come to me!

“I think nothing could avoid this – he is looking forward to it, I am looking forward to it and I expect him in the line-up."
