Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson will omit the Premier League game against Arsenal on Monday and Thiago Alcantara is in contention to make his full debut.

Henderson sustained a thigh problem in the first half of Sunday’s 2-0 league win at Chelsea, which led to Thiago coming off the bench to make his first appearance for the Reds, two days after signing from Bayern Munich.

Joel Matip has yet to return to training either, but the Premier League champions are boosted by Joe Gomez being involved again.

I think Joe should be back today in training, that’s what everybody told me – and nobody told me something different since,” said Klopp.

“Billy [Koumetio] is back in training. Joel not, pretty much. Hendo not yet, that was clear – this game is for sure too early. I think that’s it, pretty much.”
