Jordan Henderson and Jon Flanagan work on their rehabilitation from injuries
Jordan Henderson and Jon Flanagan hit the gym on Thursday morning as the Liverpool pair work on their fitness.
The Reds captain is currently sidelined after the midfielder had to undergo an operation following a fractured bone in his foot.
Flanagan, meanwhile, has been working on his recovery from a knee problem which kept the right-back sidelined throughout the 2014/15 campaign.
And the Reds duo were all smiles as they posed for a snap in the gym while their team-mates prepared for the visit of Sion on Thursday night.
Henderson wrote on his Instagram page: “Gym buddies @jonflan38 💪”
Liverpool’s 12 matches against Swiss sides have ended W6 D4 L2 (W3 D3 L0 at Anfield – W3 D1 L2 in Switzerland). Their last three home games against Swiss outfits ended in draws, most recently 1-1 against Basel in last season’s UEFA Champions League group stage.
Sion are without a win in six European away trips (D3 L3 – including a 3-0 default defeat at Celtic FC) – a run which stretches back to a 1-0 triumph at TPS Turku in the Intertoto Cup in June 1998.
Liverpool made it through to the knockout phase in both of their previous Europa League group stage campaigns – 2010/11 and 2012/13.
