JORDAN HENDERSON and Naby Keita have handed boss Jurgen Klopp a fitness boost after returning to training.

Club captain Henderson has missed the last four matches with a hamstring strain he picked up against Huddersfield last month.

Keita, Hendo’s midfield partner, is also fit and raring to go after he was hurt playing for Guinea on international duty.

The former RB Leipzig man hasn’t played for the Reds since their 0-0 draw with Manchester City early in October.

Keita, 23, has struggled to cement a spot in Liverpool’s first-team in recent weeks but Klopp may be tempted to give him a run out against struggling Fulham.

He teased Liverpool fans that he is ready to return to action by uploading a video to Instagram of him taking part in a full training session.

Klopp is set to call in the changes as Liverpool hope to bounce back from a disappointing defeat against Red Star in the Champions League.

Xherdan Shaqiri, who was left out of the European tie, could feature along with Brazilian ace Fabinho.

They head into the clash with rock bottom Fulham as hot favourites after Klopp held a crisis meeting with his faltering stars. 

And left-back Andrew Robertson had some harsh words after they lost three European away games in a row for the first time in 39 years.

Robertson, 24, said: “I think it’s one of those periods we need to get through.

“You don’t forget about these results quickly.

“The gaffer, win or lose, always speaks more the day after because that’s when he can clear his head and that’s where he gets the best out of us.

“We need to come together as a team and try to give what the gaffer wants, try to get the spark and try to win games more comfortably.”
