Liverpool fans take to Twitter to demand Fabinho at centre-back ahead of Bayern

Liverpool fans take to Twitter to demand Fabinho at centre-back ahead of Bayern

Next week sees one of Liverpool’s biggest games of the season taking place at Anfield. The Reds may be flying high in the Premier League, but the Champions League provides a tantalising prospect, and with Bayern travelling to Anfield on Wednesday, the Reds have been calling for Fabinho to be slotted in at the heart of their defence.

If you haven’t heard by now, the Reds are having more than a few problems at centre-back at the moment. Virgil van Dijk will miss the Bayern clash through suspension due to the fact he picked up three bookings in the group stages whilst both Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren miss the clash through injury. That leaves Jurgen Klopp with just Joel Matip as his lone sit centre-half.

Those issues at the back mean that Klopp will be forced to go into the clash with a makeshift backline, and with Jordan Henderson and Fabinho the two options being looked at to fill in, the fans are desperate for Fabinho to be picked. The last thing the fans want is Robert Lewandowski going up against Henderson, so the Brazilian is the one who the Kopites are all calling for.

You can read the Reds’ verdict on who they want to partner Matip here:

The Kopites hate the idea of seeing Henderson slotting in at centre-back and whilst Fabinho will be a loss in midfield it simply has to be the ex-Monaco man who slots in there.
