The German manager is confident that Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson will be fit to face Wolves on Sunday. The Reds confirmed top spot in their UCL group with a 1-0 victory over Ajax at Anfield on Tuesday night thanks to a Curtis Jones goal.
Jurgen has forced into a string of changes for the match with Ajax and Klopp was clearly fearful his side had suffered another injury when Andrew pulled up midway through the first half. Robertson received medical attention on an ankle issue and he was sidelined five minutes later when it looked likely that the defender would be substituted.
However, Andrew managed to survive the 90 minutes while captain Jordan Henderson was suffering from a back issue throughout the win. With Wolves to come on the weekend, Reds can ill-afford to be without the pair but the German manager is confident that both footballers will prove their fitness in time.
‘Robbo had a proper, proper knock on his ankle but he played through,’ Jurgen said. ‘Hendo had a stiff back but he played on. The boys gave everything ‘They played through it so I would say but I don’t know. At the moment, I am positive. That is a problem for the next few days, not tonight.’
Reds victory means they can afford to rest footballers in their final group match, which could be invaluable given the hectic domestic schedule. Jurgen Klopp admitted he was delighted with both Williams and Jones, as the duo combined for the only goal of the game. ‘It was a good cross from Neco. For the goalkeeper, it was tricky’ said Klopp.
