Many Liverpool fans were incensed after manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed that Fabinho will miss their Saturday lunchtime trip to Leicester City.
Speaking during his pre-match press conference (via Paul Joyce), the German tactician confirmed that the 27-year-old will not be making the journey to the King Power Stadium due to a muscle issue.
Fabinho has been turned into a makeshift centre-back due to the first team’s ongoing injury crisis that has disrupted the champions’ momentum this season.
All three of their defenders at the start of the 2020/21 campaign, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip, have all been ruled out with season-ending injuries. This led to the Merseysiders signing Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies on Deadline Day.
Who should start at CB for Liverpool in Fabinho's absence?
As a result, supporters were livid about the latest setback during a season that has been troublesome for them from almost the first kick, making their feeling clear towards Joyce on Twitter.
Fabinho absence causes Kop stir
“What a joke.”

“We really can’t catch a break”
“Sack the new medical staff. Embarrassing”
“This is a joke”
