Liverpool midfielder, Fabinho suffered an ankle injury in the match against Napoli. The Brazilian is said to be out until next year.

Fabinho went off after 19 minutes of Wednesday’s Champions League group game which the Reds drew 1-1. He fell awkwardly raising a challenge.

The club made reports over his injury. They said, “the 26-year-old had suffered ankle ligament damage” and will be out until the new year.”

“Losing a player of the quality of Fabinho is big. Bad.” Said Klopp.

“It is bad news. Timeframe, we are not 100% sure 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. That is what we have to deal with and we will.”

Fabinho has started 12 games out of 13 League games this season and five European fixtures.

Liverpool has 11 games over the next 34 days in the Premier League, Champions League, Carabao Cup and Club World Cup.

Nonetheless, Liverpool is eight points clear at the top of the Premier League. The club will host Brighton on Saturday, a game Fabinho will have been suspended for anyway.
