Liverpool team news: Jurgen Klopp gives injury update ahead of Arsenal clash

Liverpool will be hoping to bounce back from their 3-1 defeat against Leicester City when they take on Arsenal on Saturday.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp was without team captain Jordan Henderson against Leicester City due to a foot injury he suffered during training.

Klopp has revealed that Henderson is unlikely to return in time for the Arsenal clash.

“It looks like he will not be ready for Arsenal,” Klopp was quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo

“That’s how it looks but I’m not sure, we will see.”

Emre Can was dropped in the 2-0 defeat against Tottenham for Gini Wijnaldum but he returned to the starting line-up against the Foxes, replacing Henderson.

The Germany international of Turkish origin provided Coutinho with the assist in the Reds only goal of the game.

The assist was Can’s first of the season and he put on a decent display outperforming fellow central midfielder Gini Wijnaldum in almost every area.

Liverpool have picked up just one point from the two league games Henderson has not started this season.

Daniel Sturridge also missed the Leicester game after coming down with the flu but he could return to the bench against the Gunners.

Meanwhile makeshift centre-back Lucas Leiva could keep his place in the side if Dejan Lovren fails to recover in time from his knee problem.
