0 49

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho will miss the FA Cup final against Chelsea due to injury but Jurgen Klopp is hopeful of the Brazilian return for the Champions League final.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that the Reds will be without midfielder Fabinho against Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

The Brazilian was forced off in their last match against Aston Villa in the Premier League with a hamstring injury.

The injury will rule Fabinho out of the Reds clash against Chelsea and also their last two Premier League match against Southampton and Wolves.

Though Jurgen Klopp is hopeful that Fabinho will be available for the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

“There’s a good chance that he will be available,” said Klopp, who remains confident Liverpool can cope with Fabinho’s absence for the remainder of their domestic campaign.

“We have to. Because we can cope. 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]. We have a few players.”

With Jordan Henderson set to play against Chelsea in the anchorman role he has performed occasionally this season, Klopp is likely to rely on Thiago Alcantara and Naby Keita to make up his three in the midfield.
