Just think, if Lovren used his head and didn’t dive into the challenge like a bull in a china shop then this Fabinho injury wouldn’t be an issue.
Luckily the run of games, whilst high in number of games, isn’t the toughest of opponents to be facing so it could be much worse but it’s still not ideal.
Hendo and Gini are going to have to find consistency in their performances now and this is a great chance for Keita and Ox to really step up. We lost Alisson and exceeded expectations with Adrian so who’s to say it won’t happen again with Fab and his replacement.
It was going to be a tough period of games anyway and he wouldn’t have played every single one of them. Blessing in disguise to take a slight edge off it is that he wouldn’t have been playing this week anyway. Plus, we might get lucky and he might recover sooner than expected like I think Kane did with a similar injury last season.
