Fabinho’s injury comes as shock to Liverpool

Fabinho is set to be sidelined from football after suffering an injury on Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Midtjylland.

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has admitted that Fabinho’s injury is “exactly the last thing we needed”, after seeing the club’s defensive problems mount during the Champions League win over Midtjylland.

The Brazilian joined Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip on the sidelines after pulling up with a hamstring injury during the 2-0 Group D win at Anfield.

“He felt his hamstring, and that’s not good,” said Klopp when asked about Fabinho’s injury after the Reds went two points clear at the top of Group D.

“He said he could have played on but no sprints, which doesn’t help. We will see, we will know more after a scan but clearly it isn’t good.”

Klopp, however, added that: “we’re doing really well but it’s a shock for a team because now we have to sort that injury.”
