Fabinho to miss FA Cup Final Battle

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has confirmed his side will be without Brazilian midfielder Fabinho for Saturday’s FA Cup final against Chelsea. The Brazilian came off with a hamstring injury in Tuesday’s 2-1 win at Aston Villa. Fabinho will also miss the final two league games of the season, but Klopp hopes he will be fit in time for the Champions League final on 28 May.

The manager said: “We can cope,” Klopp said when asked how the 28-year-old’s absence would impact Liverpool’s title hopes.” “We have to. Having him or not having him is a difference but it is all fine. That’s normal stuff that happens. It’s never in a position where you have 12 options, it’s always in a position where you don’t.”

Jurgen Klopp said there’s a good chance that he will be available for the Champions League final. Jordan Henderson came off the bench to replace Fabinho in the comeback victory at Villa Park and Klopp hinted that Henderson will retain the defensive midfield position at Wembley.

A vital cog in the Liverpool machine, the Reds will be without Fabinho for the Premier League games against Southampton and Wolves as they hope for a Manchester City slip-up. Liverpool is second, three points behind defending champions City and with a significantly inferior goal difference with two games remaining.
