On Friday, Jurgen Klopp confirmed that midfield duo Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita will be unavailable for tomorrow’s game at Anfield against Cardiff City. Both have minor hamstring injuries on which Klopp said: “[Henderson and Keita] will not work out for tomorrow, for sure not. Both are in a good way but will not be ready for then.” The other midfield absentee is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who has a long-term injury. This leaves James Milner, Adam Lallana, Gini Wijnaldum and Fabinho to fight it out to start in what is likely to be a three-man midfield. It’s safe to say one of the names has a lot of Liverpool fans talking.

Considering that, let’s look at some of the Liverpool fans’ reactions and how some of them have managed to find a major positive from it.
Many fans are keen to see Fabinho once again following a fine showing midweek.
