#UCL: Liverpool fans worst fears as Fabinho injury adds to defensive woes



Liverpool fans were sent into meltdown as Fabinho was forced off during the first half of their Champions League tie against FC Midtjylland through injury.

Fabinho, a holding midfielder by trade, has filled in at centre-back in the absence of Virgil Van Dijk, who tore his anterior cruciate ligament in a collision with Jordan Pickford during the Merseyside derby. Joel Matip is also sidelined at the moment.

The Brazilian has mostly looked comfortable playing in the back four alongside Joe Gomez, with a highlight of his brief stint at centre-back coming in last week’s Champions League game against Ajax, as he cleared a ball off the line with an acrobatic overhead kick.

But Liverpool’s already depleted defence just got even thinner, as Fabinho hobbled off after half an hour to be replaced by the 19-year-old Rhys Williams. Early speculation suggests it could be a hamstring injury but nothing has yet been confirmed.

Reds fans, understandably, are very worried.

Below are some of the fans’s reactions:
