Jordan Henderson is edging closer to a return from injury as he looks to recover fully from the hamstring injury that has sidelined him for the last four weeks.

Liverpool have been without their skipper for just over a month after Jordan Henderson limped off at the Emirates with a hamstring injury. Emre Can has deputised efficiently in his stead ever since but Jurgen Klopp will be happy to see Hendo close to full fitness.

Chris Bascombe writes for the Telegraph: “Klopp is yet to decide if his skipper is ready to face West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup on Saturday. That will be determined over the next few training sessions.”

Klopp will be wary of throwing Henderson back into the deep end with hamstring injuries the type to be aggravated by high-intensity exercise but his return to training is certainly a welcome boost for the former Borussia Dortmund gaffer.

With three domestic games in the space of eight days, with two of them league games, Klopp will be weighing up whether or not he will start Henderson in the FA Cup or ease him back into action slowly.

While 27-year-old might not have had quite as bad luck as Daniel Sturridge has over the years, Henderson hasn’t had the cleanest fitness record at Liverpool and will be hoping to end the season without any further issues.

Liverpool are currently fourth in the Premier League and face Huddersfield on Tuesday after West Brom this weekend in the FA Cup. Following a trip to the Kirklees Stadium, the Reds will host Tottenham at Anfield as they look to both avenge their 4-1 defeat back in October and ensure they build a gap in the race to secure top four again.

There aren’t any fresh injury concerns and Klopp will go into the next few fixtures with a full-strength squad.
