Liverpool are ‘cautiously optimistic’ that Andy Robertson and Jordan Henderson will prove their fitness in time to face Leicester City on Saturday.

Henderson was taken off at half-time in England’s defeat to Belgium after suffering from ‘muscle tightness’ against Roberto Martinez’s side, while Robertson missed Scotland’s game against Slovakia after playing 120 minutes in their win against Serbia just three days earlier.

Henderson has since pulled out of the England squad, raising fears that his injury may keep him out of the game against the Foxes.

But the Mirror reports that the Reds are hopeful that Henderson and Robertson will both pass late fitness tests in order to face Brendan Rodgers’ side.

That will be a timely boost for Jurgen Klopp, who is already without the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah to face the high-flying Foxes.

Fabinho has missed the last fortnight with a hamstring injury but the Brazilian is expected to return to training this week.

Klopp is expected to play the former Monaco ace at centre half should he be fit enough to face Leicester, while Henderson will be given time to recover after being released from the Three Lions squad.

‘Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been released from the England squad and returned to the club for further assessment,’ a statement from the club read.

‘The midfielder was withdrawn at half-time of the Three Lions’ clash with Belgium on Sunday night after feeling “a bit of tightness” according to Gareth Southgate.

‘On Monday evening, the Football Association confirmed Henderson will therefore sit out Wednesday’s UEFA Nations League meeting with Iceland.

‘Liverpool are back in action on Sunday when they host Leicester City in the Premier League.’
