It’s since been confirmed that the 28-year-old will miss Saturday’s FA Cup final against Chelsea, as well as the Reds’ remaining league games against Southampton and Wolves.
That means that the no. 3 faces a race to be fit for the meeting with Real Madrid in Paris at the end of the month.
Maddock, northern football correspondent for the paper, shared the ‘big news‘ on Fabinho on Thursday evening.
This would be a significant boost for Klopp and Liverpool. Fabinho is typically one of the first names on the team-sheet, starting 26 of the 30 Premier League games for which he’s been available.
What’s more, Klopp has previously hailed him as ‘the best‘ defensive midfielder on the planet.
And with Fabinho on the pitch, Liverpool are outscoring the opposition by an average of 1.7 goals per 90 minutes.
Injury played a part last time Liverpool faced Real Madrid in the UCL showpiece, with top goalscorer Mohamed Salah forced off in the first half, and they won’t want it to be a factor this time around.
