Liverpool face Sheffield United at Bramall Lane this coming Sunday.

Fabinho, who has not played for Liverpool since the beginning of February, could return for the Premier League clash.

That is according to the Times. Fabinho recently suffered a muscle injury, which is why he has not been in action for the Reds recently.

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

At Anfield Watch, we would love to see Fabinho return for the Reds this weekend.

The Brazilian has been averaging a WhoScored player rating of 6.91 across the 2020-21 season, which highlights that he has been playing reasonably well.

Fabinho has been integral to Liverpool’s recent success. The Brazilian has made 107 appearances for Liverpool since 2018.

During Fabinho’s time at the club, Liverpool have won the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and Premier League.

The aforementioned numbers and achievements highlight that Fabinho is an important cog in Jurgen Klopp’s side.

That is why we hate seeing the Brazilian injured.
