Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed his side will be without midfielder Fabinho for Saturday’s English FA Cup final against Chelsea.
The Brazilian came off with a hamstring injury in last Tuesday’s win at Aston Villa.
Fabinho will also miss the final two league games of the season, but Klopp hopes he will be fit in time for the UEFA Champions League final on 28 May.
Jordan Henderson came off the bench to replace Fabinho in the comeback victory at Villa Park and Klopp hinted that Henderson will retain the defensive midfield position at Wembley.
A vital cog in the Liverpool machine, the Reds will be without Fabinho for the English Premier League games against Southampton and Wolves as they hope for a Manchester City slip-up.
Liverpool are second, three points behind defending champions City and with a significantly inferior goal difference with two games remaining.
