Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is due up to face the media at 1pm on Friday ahead of his side's trip to Sheffield United on Sunday.

The Reds boss is expected to face questions about the injury situation at Anfield, particularly the loss of captain Jordan Henderson and potential return of Diogo Jota.

Klopp is also likely to be asked about how his squad has responded to a fourth consecutive home defeat following the 2-0 defeat to Everton and whether Alisson will be available for selection after the tragic death of his father this week.

Henderson speaks for first time after surgery confirmed

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson

Jordan Henderson has spoken for the first time after undergoing surgery on a groin injury, writes Theo Squires.

The Liverpool captain limped off in the first half in last weekend's Merseyside derby defeat to Everton, and has been ruled out by the Reds until at least after the March international break.

Now set to undergo rehabilitation, April is looking the best-case scenario for a return at this time with the 30-year-old set to return in time for the final weeks of the season.

Henderson said:

"Obviously gutted to have picked up an injury.

"But will do everything I can to support the team while working on my rehab."
