Klopp Perturbed As Fabinho Suffers Muscle Injury

Liverpool are waiting to learn the extent of Fabinho’s injury suffered against Aston Villa on Tuesday.

After pulling up with a muscle injury after 30 minutes of play in the 2-1 triumph at Villa Park, the midfielder was forced off the field.

Jürgen Klopp conceded the Reds would have to wait for more information, but Fabinho expressed optimism about the situation.

In his post-match press conference, the manager said: “I don’t know [how bad it is]. He felt the muscle, not too much.

“He is quite positive but I’m not sure what I can make of that, to be honest. We will see.

“I think the rest came through without problems.

“Robbo was not in the squad today because I wanted to give him just a rest at home and bring another striker into the squad if we needed, that’s it.

“Apart from that, we should be fine.”

On Fabinho, Klopp added: “He has a good feeling and that gives me a better feeling than I had and I took him off. What that means, I don’t know yet.”

The injury could rule out the Brazilian ahead of the FA Cup final against Chelsea.
