Andy Robertson and Jordan Henderson should be fit for Liverpool's clash with Leicester City, according to the Mirror's David Maddock.

Jordan Henderson and Raheem Sterling will miss England's Nations League fixture against Iceland on Wednesday, the Football Association has announced.

"Henderson was withdrawn at half time of the Three Lions' defeat to Belgium on Sunday evening, while Sterling was ruled out of the game completely". That would be good as we'd like our captain on the pitch'.

Henderson's problem is particularly worrisome to Reds manager Jurgen Klopp, who has been beset by injuries in recent weeks.

The Reds have lost central defensive duo Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez to potentially season-ending knee injuries, with the latter sustaining the blow on England duty last week.

Manchester City attacker Sterling played no part against Belgium because of a "small niggle" picked up in training. The extent of Robertson's injury is still not known and he may be available for the next game against Leicester.

This is assuming Thiago and Fabinho are fit, although that is unknown now.

The 28-year-old has already tested positive in two separate tests over the past week and has missed his country African Nations Cup qualifiers.

The Foxes now lead the way in the Premier League, and could move four points clear of Liverpool if they are able to beat them on Sunday evening.
