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.

And according to The Daily Mail, manager Jurgen Klopp will be without Fabinho for the whole of December, a month where rotation is key due to fixture congestion.

 

Here's how fans of the Anfield club reacted to a potentially big blow.

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.
