Good evening, dear Liverpool fans Here are the latest headlines for Wednesday, October 28.
The latest news from Liverpool, views and transfer rumours from the Echo.
During yesterday’s post-match press conference, a Brazilian journalist asked the Liverpool manager for an update on Fabinho and asked if this would make him miss next month’s international break.
The 27-year-old, who limped away 2-0 last night in a 2-0 win over FC Midtjylland, has just completed 12 international matches and, despite being called up, did not make it onto the pitch for Brazil’s latest World Cup qualifiers against Bolivia and Peru.
The strategy of Brazil’s coach Tite to play rarely against Fabinho was questioned by Jurgen Klopp.
“Fab was not positive, but also not too negative, we will see, we have to wait for the scan tomorrow morning, then we will know more.
“I’m not sure if Tite is too worried because he never plays against him, so he will probably not be on the bench for the next three international matches,” Klopp replied.
“For us it is obviously a real blow, but at the moment we don’t know yet.
Here is what Klopp said in full.
The Brazilian international shouted “Hold the line, hold the line” and “Come on Rhys, push out, push out!” after the young Rhys Williams had been put in place of the injured substitute Fabinho.
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker was particularly vocal in difficult circumstances as he tried to make a click to the success of his makeshift partnership in last night’s central defense against Midtjylland.
However, Liverpool did well to keep a clean sheet and take a commanding place at the top of the table with their second successive Champions League win.
Here are the other moments you might have missed from last night’s game.
Fabinho was already played from his natural position, while Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip were both marginalized, making Joe Gomez the club’s only senior team.
