Liverpool have received a big injury boost ahead of their Premier League clash with Arsenal.
The Premier League retuns this weekend following the international break, and Arsenal return with a bang, taking on last season’s champions and one of their top six rivals at the Emirates Stadium.
Just four points separate the Gunners in ninth and the Reds in seventh, making this one a potentially defining clash in the race for Europe.
Though, Jordan Henderson and Virgil van Dijk will remain out with Jurgen Klopp saying in his press conference: “Bobby is back. All the others not. I have no idea about the Euros.
“Nothing has changed. They are where they should be at the moment. If they are ready then they are ready. They are in rehab process.”
Speaking about Henderson in greater detail, Klopp added: “No, not really. He is not here at the moment, he cannot train. He will train in the next days or weeks, for sure.”
The midfielder had groin surgery in late February, and he has and will be sorely missed, being a crucial part of Liverpool’s midfield in recent years.

Firmino will be a boost, however, the Brazilian scoring six and assisting seven so far this season. The 29-year-old is the focal point of the Reds’ frontline and someone Arsenal will need to keep quiet.
Fortunately for the Gunners, Liverpool have won just once in their last five Premier League games, making this a good time to face last season’s champions.
