Henderson and Origi have final hope


Jordan Henderson and Divock Origi could be fit for the Europa League final, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed.

Club captain Henderson suffered a knee ligament injury in the Europa League quarter-final first leg draw against Borussia Dortmund and, although he did not require surgery, the 25-year-old was ruled out for up to eight weeks.

Origi, meanwhile, is recovering from a serious ankle injury sustained in a challenge from Ramiro Funes Morii during last month's Merseyside derby.

Having watched their side qualify for the May 18 final, Klopp knows they would love nothing more than to feature in the Basel showpiece but he has warned that will only be considered if they are fit for the final Premier League game of the season at West Brom.

“He (Henderson) was really celebrating. I saw in his eyes that he believes he has a chance (for the final). Same for Divock Origi," Klopp told reporters on Friday.

“If they are available for the Sunday before then there’s a chance.

“Otherwise we can’t take the risk.”
