Liverpool receive boost over Fabinho injury

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has received a boost over the extent of Fabinho's hamstring injury.

The Mirror says the versatile Brazil international underwent a scan on Wednesday morning after limping out of the Champions League game against Midtjylland with what appeared a serious hamstring injury.

A grade-three tear would rule the midfielder out for up to six months and be a hammer blow for Klopp who is already without Virgil van Dijk.

But scans show it is not as serious, and only a grade one or two, which means he could well be back straight after the upcoming international break.

Such is the congestion of the fixture list, it would mean the Brazilian could still miss at least three matches - and big ones, too - with the Reds facing West Ham and Manchester City in the Premier League and a Champions League visit to Atalanta in between.
