Latest Update on Fabinho’s injury – doubtful for Champions League final

Liverpool’s star midfielder Fabinho suffered a suspected hamstring injury in their Premier League match against Aston Villa on Wednesday.

The Brazilian had to be replaced by Jordan Henderson at the half hour mark of  the game after suffering a knock.

It has been revealed that Fabinho has suffered a hamstring injury which could be a big blow for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

The defensive midfielder could end up missing the FA Cup final against Chelsea and the key Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp offered a cautiously optimistic fitness update when asked if Fabinho would be available for Wembley.

“I don’t know,” said the Reds boss. “He felt a muscle, not too much. It was not the thigh, but the other side (hamstring). He is quite positive but I’m not sure what I can take of that, to be honest. We will see.

“I can’t say when he’ll be ready. Nobody has an answer for that. He has a good feeling and that gives me a better feeling than I had when I took him off.

“If you ask me now, I’d say leave Fabinho out (for this game) but I can’t turn that back. He was completely fine before the game.”

Liverpool are, although, yet to give any confirmation over his injury situation.
