Fabinho might play in defense as Liverpool suffers a fresh injury blow ahead of some important fixtures.
Ibrahima Konate is out due to injury and is likely to miss the Champions League match against Real Madrid at Anfield. Frenchman will miss out for at least three weeks.
Liverpool are also missing Virgil Van Dijk due to injury and his absence can be hurtful. Club looks very fragile at Centre-Back.
Nat Phillips’ expected sale was put on hold, leaving him with Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, and Rhys Williams as Jurgen Klopp’s CB options.
Big games against Everton, Newcastle, and Real Madrid coming up and Klopp shouldn’t be all worried as he has another option in – Fabinho.
The 29-year-old has been out of form and his well-timed signature tackle has deserted him and often looked lost out on the pitch.
Fabinho played brilliantly in defence during the 2020/21 season as he excelled in his defensive duties and his future lies in the last line.
Fabinho future lies in the defense line
Liverpool’s defensive unit look’s horrid. Trent Alexander Arnold’s defensive qualities get heavily criticized by pundits, quite regularly.
Aging Joel Matip and inconsistent Joe Gomes rarely convince anymore. Injuries to Virgil Van and Ibrahima Konate have worsened the situation.
Fabinho is going through a tough phase which gives the opportunity to young Stefan Bajcetic in midfield.
Fabinho in defense can be a tactically genius move by Klopp and help the team in crises as moving deeper gives him the opportunity to coach Bajcetic through games in front of him. It could highlight all his best attributes without leaving him exposed
Bajcetic is a promising young player and won huge praise in recent times.
Moreover, Liverpool’s season has looked disastrous and this tactical move can be very crucial to get them out of misery.
