Robertson and Henderson are doubtful for Liverpool’s match against Arsenal

Before the visit of Arsenal, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson and defender Andy Robertson will undergo late fitness tests.

The two have been confined to recuperation training apart from the main team after returning from international duty with minor concerns.

Forward Sadio Mane has recovered from rib bruises sustained while playing for Senegal, but Roberto Firmino (hamstring), Joe Gomez (calf), Curtis Jones (eye), and Harvey Elliott (ankle) remain on Jurgen Klopp’s longer-term injury list, with James Milner and Naby Keita (both hamstring) the most likely to return next week.

For the trip to Anfield, Arsenal might be without forwarding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and midfielder Thomas Partey.

Partey was unable to travel on international service and it is unclear whether he will be ready for the game. Aubameyang returned early from international duty and manager Mikel Arteta stated he would have to be examined before the encounter.

The Gunners will also be missing defender Sead Kolasinac and midfielder Granit Xhaka, who are both suffering from left ankle and knee ligament injuries.

Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas, Fabinho, Thiago, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Salah, Jota, Mane, Kelleher, Williams, Konate, Phillips, Morton, Minamino, Origi, Henderson, Robertson.
