Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said he was "not happy" to see midfielder and club captain Jordan Henderson play for England after the national team had already achieved World Cup qualification.

Henderson started for England in Sunday's match in Lithuania despite Gareth Southgate's side booking their place in Russia for next summer three days earlier by beating Slovenia at Wembley.

Klopp told a news conference on Friday ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash against Manchester United at Anfield: "I was not happy Hendo was on the pitch [against Lithuania] when they had already qualified."

Liverpool will be without forward Sadio Mane for around six weeks after the Senegal international suffered an injury while on international duty, but he is confident that Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino will be fit to face United in the lunchtime kick-off despite only returning from Brazil on Thursday.
