Jurgen Klopp provides Thiago & Jordan Henderson updates, quizzed on Englishman’s contract situation

Liverpool vs Burnley

Liverpool are set to play their first home game of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign later this week.

The Reds kicked off their seaosn with a 3-0 win over Premier League new boys Norwich City last Saturday.

Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah were all on target for Jurgen Klopp’s side, with the latter setting a Premier League record – becoming the first player to score on the opening weekend in five consecutive Premier League campaigns:

Salah and co. must now turn their attentions to Burnley, who they face at Anfield in Saturday’s early kick-off.

The Clarets are generally pretty awful against the traditional top-six sides, but they did beat an injury-hit Liverpool at Anfield during the second half of last season.

However, it is also worth noting that Burnley had a poor start to 2021/22, losing 2-1 against Brighton last Saturday.

Klopp on Thiago and Henderson

Ahead of the early kick-off, Jurgen Klopp has spoken to the media on Friday.

The German would discuss a number of topics in his press conference, including Jordan Henderson and Thiago.

Both missed Liverpool’s season opener but do look to be getting closer to a return:

“Much closer, they look fine and we have to make the decision. It was a good training week so it’s up to me to make the decisions.”

Klopp also provided an update on Jordan Henderson’s contract situation
