Thankfully, Jürgen Klopp has declared that everything is fine with Fabinho after he was involved in a head collision in our win over Cardiff on Sunday.
“It was very unlucky. Fabinho is OK but he had a bit of shaky legs and that’s of course not a good sign in the moment,” Klopp revealed to Liverpoolfc.com.
“It’s a 100 per cent ‘yes’ or go off; if it’s 95 per cent in that game in that position, we cannot make that decision [to stay on]. It’s all good.”
Obrigado por todas as mensagens e preocupação. Está tudo bem comigo e estou muito feliz pela nossa vitória. Vamos continuar nossa luta até o fim!
Thanks for all the messages and concern. Everything’s good and I’m very happy with our win. We’ll keep fighting until the end!

The Brazilian came on as a second-half subsitute for Naby Keïta but had to be substituted himself after four minutes in what was probably one of the shortest Premier League cameos.
Our club medics must have feared the midfielder had sustained concussion in the clash of heads and took the right decision in bringing him off just in case.
His replacement, James Milner, sealed the deal by scoring a penalty. With the game won and Fabinho now back on his feet, everything is looking good for our next game against Huddersfield on Friday.
