Liverpool might miss the services of captain Jordan Henderson and defender Joel Matip for their Premier League opener against Leeds.
Both players missed the club’s Community Shield loss to Arsenal on Saturday and according to manager Jurgen Klopp, the duo might not still be ready for the tie slated for September 12.
“For that, we have to see when he trains. I think Joel and Hendo will be in parts of team training next week and we will see. Of course, the longer they have the better the chance is, but I don’t know at this moment,” Klopp told the club’s official website.
Henderson and Matip have been rehabilitating the respective knee and foot issues that ruled them out of last season’s run-in and the 2020-21 preparations thus far.
