The Brazilian left the field after just 19 minutes holding his left ankle in the process in a game that could have seen the Reds advance to the last 16 of the Champions League for the third season in a row.
Fabinho was a key asset in Liverpool’s Champions League charge last season as they lifted the elusive trophy in Madrid after a 2-0 win against Tottenham at the Wanda Metropolitano.
To add to the fears of fans, the Brazil international was pictured wearing a protective boot alongside former Barcelona and Chelsea star Deco.
We must wait to discover the extent of the injury sustained by Fabinho during tonight’s 1-1 draw with Napoli.

Supporters were anxious to find the fate of Fabinho and made their feelings clear on social media.
Here you will find some of the worried words from Liverpool fans:
