The Liverpool midfielder is reportedly going to miss the whole of December.
If rumours are believed, Liverpool fans have seen the last of Fabinho until 2020.
The all-action Reds midfielder picked up an ankle injury in the first half of Wednesday's 1-1 draw with Napoli in the Champions League, substituted for Gini Wijnaldum.
Portugal legend Deco posted a photograph on Instagram of the Liverpool star wearing a protective boot after the game.
Here's how fans of the Anfield club reacted to a potentially big blow.

Big loss that! Probably the toughest 4-6 weeks we’ve got going ahead! Need to sign one or two players in Jan to help boost the squad.— Sam Brierley (@brierley_sam) November 28, 2019

Liverpool are eight points clear at the top of the Premier League table and now is not the time to be losing such a big player.
Fabinho has been a monster for Klopp this season and although the German manager has a big squad, the Brazil international will certainly be missed.
Klopp's side have at least 10 games across all competitions - including the Club World Cup - between now and January 2.
