Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference today ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash with Watford and he’s offered some positive news on the injury front.

Fresh from last night’s Europa League semi final victory over Villarreal, the Reds boss was pleased to offer updates on the fitness of Jordan Henderson, Divock Origi and Danny Ings with all three still in with a chance of playing again this season.

Henderson was ruled out after suffering knee ligament damage against Borussia Dortmund a month ago and the midfielder was initially expected to miss the rest of the campaign.

Origi on the other hand was forced off during Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Everton last month after suffering an ankle injury and he too was expected to miss the remainder of the season.

However, both players have been making good progress in their recoveries in recent weeks and Klopp has now suggested that the duo are eyeing comebacks in the Europa League final against Sevilla on May 18th.

We’ll have to wait and see whether Henderson and Origi manage to prove their fitness ahead of the final later this month but they could yet be joined back in the Liverpool squad by Danny Ings.

The striker only moved to Anfield last summer and was cruelly sidelined after suffering a serious knee ligament injury in training back in October which was expected to keep him out until the end of the season.

However, the 23-year-old has been back in full training in recent weeks and Klopp says the striker is eager to get back on the pitch as soon as possible, but the Reds boss is reluctant to rush him back too soon as he’s got plenty of attacking options at his disposal.

Klopp also confirmed that he will make some changes to his line-up against Watford this weekend as Liverpool look to protect their key men ahead of the huge Europa League final.
