Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp faces an anxious wait to discover the extent of the injury suffered by his key midfielder Fabinho in Wednesday’s 1-1 Champions League draw with Napoli.

The Brazilian holding midfielder hobbled off in the 19th minute with an ankle injury, being replaced by Dutchman Georgino Wijnaldum.

“The biggest thing is the Fabinho injury, that’s massive,” said Klopp.

“It’s early and we all hope it’s not too serious but it’s pretty painful and in an area you don’t want to have pain, around the ankle,” added the German.
