It is up to Jordan Henderson whether he wants to face his former club Sunderland on Wednesday, according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

Henderson has been slowly regaining match fitness after a foot injury kept him out of action for over three months. 

The Liverpool skipper made his return in the side’s 1-0 win over Swansea City at the end of November, and has played 90 minutes in each of their last three Premier League fixtures.

However, Henderson is still feeling soreness from a troublesome heel injury, and Klopp is wary of playing him regularly throughout a busy schedule.

“We always talk and always speak to Hendo and it’s up to him. Together we will decide,” Klopp said.

“I know he is a player where pain up to seven – no problem.

“But we have to work together with Andy [Massey, doctor] and Chris [Morgan, physio].

“We try to give him time but he’s also a player who needs rhythm.

“While everything is OK we say, ‘Yes, it’s OK’ and I think we should give him time to play.

“How much we shall see but we are very interested in having him in the team but it’s not a problem to change some positions for some games.”

Following their trip to Sunderland, Liverpool take on West Ham three days later.
