(Instagram) Liverpool injury news: Midfield star issues fitness update ahead of Man City clash

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has taken to Instagram to update fans of his injury situation, and it’s good news for Reds followers.

“Feeling better everyday,” revealed the England man on his jhenderson handle. “Thanks to all the medical/fitness staff! And thanks for all your support. Hopefully not too [sic] now.”

The versatile midfield star hasn’t featured yet under Jurgen Klopp following the German coach’s arrival at Anfield, with the ex-Borussia Dortmund man having replaced Brendan Rodgers last month.

Without Henderson, Klopp has enjoyed a steady start to life on Merseyside; he went unbeaten in his first six matches as Reds coach, before succumbing to a 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace before the international break.

Henderson reported back to training earlier this week, and based on his latest social media post, it’s becoming easy to sense optimism that the midfielder will be back in action before too long.

While the midfielder should have little trouble retaking his place at Liverpool, he possibly faces a fight on his hands to keep hold of his place in the England lineup.

Dele Alli as made an outstanding start to life as an international player and bagged a fine goal on his first start against France on Tuesday, while the likes of James Milner, Jack Wilshere, Michael Carrick, Eric Dier and Ryan Mason provide stiff competition for the central-midfield berths.
