Jordan Henderson remains in contention for Liverpool’s visit from Genk in the Champions League, despite missing training on Monday.

The Reds captain was not part of the pack as Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff put the players through their paces at Melwood in front of the cameras ahead of Tuesday’s game against the Belgians in Group E.

The Liverpool squad were given a light workout at their West Derby training base on Monday afternoon, a couple of hours after Klopp had addressed the media at Anfield in his pre-match press conference.

Henderson, however, was taking part in a bespoke training session inside as he went through some final preparations ahead of the European champions’ meeting with Felice Mazzu’s side.

Henderson has started 12 of 16 games in all competitions this term but remained on the bench as Klopp switched up his midfield trio against Genk in Belgium last month.

The Reds manager opted for Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on October 23 alongside Fabinho as they ran out 4-1 winners at Luminus Arena.

And although Henderson is available for the return fixture, Klopp hinted in his press conference that he could rotate as they get set for Sunday’s showdown with Manchester City at Anfield.

“The problem is not now the game on Sunday because between Tuesday and Sunday is a lot of time, but of course we have to think a little bit about Saturday to Tuesday – that’s the shorter break between the games, so we have to think,” Klopp said.
