Europa League final: Liverpool v Sevilla team news

Date published: Wednesday 18th May 2016 12:20

Liverpool have been boosted by availability of Jordan Henderson and Divock Origi ahead of the Europa League final against Sevilla.

Captain Henderson returned from a knee injury when he came off the bench during Sunday’s Premier League draw at West Brom.

The England midfielder, though, does not expect to be handed a start in Basel.

“I don’t expect to start,” said Henderson. “I know I’ve been out a long time and I’ve only played 25-30 minutes.

“When I’ve been injured the team has done very well and played in some big games to get to the final.

“I’m ready to play as long or as little as the manager wants me to.”

Divock Origi

Origi has won his race to be fit for the final following an ankle injury sustained during the 4-0 Merseyside derby victory against Everton last month.

Asked about the striker ahead of the Reds’ final training session on Tuesday, Jurgen Klopp said: “We will see.

“We had another session and he did well in the last two sessions.

“The training is after the press conference, you can watch it – unfortunately, so that means we can do nothing – and we will see how it feels and make a decision about this.”

Klopp is without Mamadou Sakho, with the central defender still banned after failing a drugs test.

Sevilla have no new injury concerns after resting most of his first-team players against Athletic Bilbao last weekend.

Of the likely starters in Switzerland, only Adil Rami, Timothee Kolodziejczak and Yevhen Konoplyanka started the 3-1 defeat.

Marco Andreolli and Michael Krohn-Dehliremain remain sidelined.
