Jordan Henderson in the mix to play against West Ham United - Jurgen Klopp

With the start of the Premier League just around the corner, the ESPN FC crew assess Liverpool's chances of besting Manchester City this season.

Liverpool will give skipper Jordan Henderson every chance to be ready for Sunday's Premier League opener against West Ham United despite the midfielder only returning to preseason training on Sunday, manager has Jurgen Klopp said.

Henderson, who helped England to a fourth-placed finish at the World Cup, impressed his manager with his fitness levels and played 20 minutes in Tuesday's 3-1 pre-season win over Torino.

"We have to see how he reacts. But it is Hendo, so to be honest in the first session it looked like he trained for the whole three weeks," Klopp told the club's official website.

"He's experienced enough not to bring himself in difficult situations where he has to run two or three miles in two minutes.

"I have no clue what we will do at the weekend."
