Liverpool fans kept the title race alive with a 2-0 win away at Cardiff yesterday and it was a win that they had to work hard for. Goals from Gerginio Wijnaldum and James Milner secured it, and they had their scares along the way. One of those scares saw Fabinho withdrawn with a head injury, and the fans are desperate for him to be okay.
Obrigado por todas as mensagens e preocupação. Está tudo bem comigo e estou muito feliz pela nossa vitória. Vamos continuar nossa luta até o fim!

The Brazilian defensive midfielder was rested from the start by Jurgen Klopp, as the German gaffer obviously has one eye on the Champions League clash against Barcelona next week. It looked to be a clever decision, but when Fabinho did enter the fray in the second half he lasted just four minutes, clashing heads with Kenneth Zohore and going off in the 75th after entering in the 71st minute.
The fears will be that the ex-Monaco man has suffered a concussion, and if he has then Jurgen Klopp made the correct decision by bringing him off. If he has to miss a couple of days then so be it, but given the research going into head injuries and the recent publicity it’s had, there’s no way the German tactician could justify leaving his midfield enforcer on, especially in a game that they were already winning.

The Kopites are desperate to see Fabinho recover properly and will be desperate for him to make it for Barcelona next Wednesday should he miss the Friday night clash with Huddersfield.
