Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had some good news for Reds fans when it came to the recovery of two of their star players this season.
Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana have missed a number of games in the past few weeks but Klopp stated that the pair are doing pretty well in their recovery and could face Watford on May 1.
The game against West Bromwich Albion might come a little early but the pair returning would be great news for a side that is looking to make it to the Champions League next season.
“[They are] better, but not good enough for the weekend,” Klopp said in the press conference. “With Jordan, it was clear from the beginning that it’s not a fixed time until he is back. We have to wait until he feels absolutely nothing, that’s how it is. That’s what we are still waiting for. In all of what he is doing at the moment, he feels nothing, but we have to make steps still, steps to go [so] that he can be part of team training.”
“With Adam, it is a little bit easier to say. I am pretty sure after the Crystal Palace game, he will probably be in normal training and that means then [for Watford] he is in the squad or we can think about him then,” the German added.
“For the Watford game again, with Jordan it could be next week in training, could be the week after, but I think we are in a good way with him also. Everything will be good and I am pretty sure he will have a few games in this season.”
Liverpool do need their star performers back quickly and more so ever since Sadio Mane has been ruled out for the season with a knee injury. The game against West Brom would not be an easy one but should they claim all three points, the top four should become a certainty for the Merseyside club.
