Jurgen Klopp says that Fabinho is still in contention to play against West Ham this weekend after his scan showed no significant injury.
The Brazilian missed training on Thursday after picking up a slight muscle issue during the 3-1 friendly win over Torino, but after getting the injury assessed, it seems like there is no significant issue.
However, the new arrival did miss an entire session as he was feeling unwell, so it is not yet guaranteed that he will be involved, but he will continue to be assessed.
Speaking about the midfielder at his pre-match press conference, Klopp said:
You all know he went for a scan. It came back clear. It was just a check-up. He was ill when he returned so we sent him home.
Although Klopp did say that Jordan Henderson was in good shape after his late arrival back with the squad, it seems like the manager has not yet decided if his captain is ready to play from the start. Ideally, he’ll want Fabinho fit and ready to play as the number six, but the option of using Henderson is still on the table.
