After being taken out of the pitch, Jurgen Klopp had no other choice than to bring on 19-year-old Rhys Williams as replacement for Fabinho.

Williams who played in the lower League did not disappoint as he made sure that Liverpool did not concede any goal against their opponents.

According to the report on UK Sun, Jurgen Klopp is not really sure of the type of injury Fabinho suffered against Midtjylland.

"It was the last thing we needed. I don't know, he felt his hamstring so that's not good.
"He didn't feel it that much he said he could've played on but not sprinting so that doesn't help. We will see, we will have to do a scan and see but clearly it's not good."

Fabinho has been playing for Liverpool since joining from Monaco in 2018 and has played 62 games so far scoring 3 goals.
