Brazil have confirmed Fabinho is out of their squad for next month’s World Cup qualifiers because of injury – and they have called up Everton’s Allan to replace him.
Fabinho suffered a knock in the Champions League win over FC Midtjylland earlier this week and his national team have confirmed he has a problem in his right thigh muscle.
The midfielder’s withdrawal from the games against Venezuela on November 13 and Uruguay on November 17 suggests he is doubtful for Liverpool’s upcoming games against West Ham and Manchester City, and the Champions League clash with Atalanta in between.
That would present yet more problems in defence for manager Jurgen Klopp, who has recently deployed Fabinho at centre-back as a replacement for injured duo Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip.— Skysports.com
