Jordan Henderson fit for clash against Inter Milan

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is fit to travel to Inter Milan for the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

The midfielder sustained a gashed knee in Sunday’s win at Burnley but is set to fly out with the rest of the team.

January signing Luis Diaz has been added to the squad and could make his European debut for the club.

“Jordan Henderson is fine. Apart from that, there are no issues really,” said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

“He got a knock on his knee and today was second-day recovery for a lot of players like for him as well, so it was not the longest session for him.

“The knee in the game was definitely not comfortable, it’s a proper wound, you can really see it – it should not be there. Apart from that, he is fine.”

Klopp takes his squad to Italy on the back of six successive victories, having in December become the first English side to win all of their Champions League group matches.

They are currently second in the Premier League, nine points behind leaders Manchester City with a game in hand, are into the FA Cup fifth round and face Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final later this month.
