Fabinho was left out of the matchday squad for Liverpool's win over Brighton.
Afterwards, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp argued the midfielder was recovering from a heavy preseason.
He said: "We had a pre-season and he could play a lot of games. I have had it plenty of times, these talks in the 18 years or so of doing the job. I think I had talks like this 30 or 40 times. We are 100 per cent convinced, so everything will be fine – but sometimes it needs a bit longer.
"Is it then nice for the player not to be in the squad? No, but I have to make a squad for the matchday and not for matchday 15. That's it, it's all good. He had a really good training week – not that it was the first one but it was a really good one – and so, everything will be fine."
