Captain Jordan Henderson is fit for Liverpool's crucial Champions League last-16 second leg tie at home to Atletico Madrid.

The England midfielder has been out since injuring a hamstring in the first leg three weeks ago but trained on Sunday and Monday and is available to take his place in the squad as the Reds seek to overcome a 1-0 deficit.

"Hendo is ready but if we do that, I don't know... or maybe I know and I don't say!" said manager Jurgen Klopp.

There was less positive news on goalkeeper Alisson Becker, however, who will miss not only this game but Monday's Merseyside derby at Everton with a hip injury which has already sidelined him for two matches.

"Ali will not be ready for Monday," added Klopp.
