Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is confident that Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson will be fit to face Wolves on Sunday.

The Reds confirmed top spot in their Champions League group with a 1-0 win against Ajax at Anfield on Tuesday night thanks to a Curtis Jones goal.

Klopp was forced into a string of changes for the game against the Dutch giants and the German was clearly fearful his side had suffered another injury when Roberton pulled up midway through the first half.

The Scot received medical attention on an ankle issue and he was sidelined five minutes later, when it looked likely that the left-back would be substituted.

However, the defender managed to survive the 90 minutes while captain Henderson was suffering from a back issue throughout the win.

With Wolves to come on Sunday, Liverpool can ill-afford to be without the pair but Klopp is confident that both players will prove their fitness in time.

‘Robbo had a proper, proper knock on his ankle but he played through,’ Klopp told BT Sport.

‘Hendo had a stiff back but he played on. The boys gave everything

‘They played through it so I would say [they are OK] but I don’t know. In the moment, I am positive. That is a problem for the next few days, not tonight.’

Liverpool’s win means they can afford to rest players in their final group match, which could be invaluable given the hectic domestic schedule.

Klopp admitted he was delighted with both Williams and Jones, as the pair combined for the only goal of the game.

‘It was a good cross from Neco. For the goalkeeper it was tricky. No player reacts usually but Curtis gambled – I have to watch it back,’ said Klopp.

‘I am very, very happy with the result and performance in the circumstances.’
