Premier League!! Henderson And Sturridge Out For Liverpool In Merseyside Derby On Saturday (Reasons)

Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge have been ruled out of Saturday’s Merseyside derby.
Sturridge has been out since February 4 with illness and a hip injury but was pictured at Melwood on Thursday, raising expectation he might return for Everton’s visit, live on Sky Sports.
But Klopp ruled out Sturridge at his Friday press conference and also revealed Henderson’s return to training, originally scheduled for this week, has been put back for the foreseeable future.
Asked about Sturridge, the Liverpool boss said: “No chance. I heard he was back to training but I don’t know who gave this information. He is working with the rehab coach. No chance this weekend.”
Henderson’s foot injury has kept him out for four games, and Klopp said: “Unfortunately he is not in team training right now. I can’t say for how long. Next week it doesn’t look like this too. So we have to wait.
“It’s only a question of time, unfortunately. There’s nothing we can do. Sometimes the issue isn’t big enough and if there was a little chance he could run he would.
“But we have to be careful and not take a risk. It’s always too long with injuries. There’s nothing else to do.”
Adam Lallana suffered a thigh injury while away with England, but Brazilians Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho are available after taking a private jet back from South America.
“Coutinho and Firmino are okay,” Klopp said. “How fresh? We will see on Saturday. Club did everything to bring them back as soon as possible.”
