Klopp Confirms Fabinho Blow
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Fabinho will be out until the New Year after picking up an injury in the 1-1 draw with Napoli on Tuesday.
The Brazilian will miss the Club World Cup and the festive schedule, which is particularly packed for the Reds this year.
"Losing a player of the quality of Fabinho is big. Really bad," said Reds manager Jurgen Klopp. "It is bad news.
“Timeframe - we are not sure 100% but looks pretty sure he will not be involved in Christmas fixtures.
"We have to replace him and we can replace him. Now it's important that he does the right things and is back as soon as possible.
"Until then, we have to find solutions. We are not the only team with injured players and that's what we have to deal with, and we will."
Liverpool have 11 games in the next 34 days in the Premier League, Carabao Cup, Champions League and the Club World Cup.
