Jurgen Klopp has played down fears about the fitness of midfielder Fabinho after the Liverpool man was forced off injured in the first half of Tuesday's 2-1 win over Aston Villa.

While further tests will need to be done to determine the severity of the injury, Klopp revealed after the game that the 28-year-old doesn't think his issue is anything too serious.

The Brazil international was not given a rest for the game, unlike Thiago or Mohamed Salah, but looked off the pace before pulling up with what appeared to be a hamstring injury inside half an hour.

On top of that, Liverpool also have the small matter of the Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 28 to look forward to, and Klopp will be sweating over Fabinho's involvement in that until the tests come back.

He had to be replaced by Jordan Henderson and now Fabinho's involvement in Saturday's FA Cup final against Chelsea is obviously up in the air.

The boss - who also confirmed that left-back Andy Robertson's omission from the matchday squad was purely down to rest and not related to an injury - admitted losing Fabinho at such a crucial point of the season could be a 'big blow'.

“He felt a muscle, not too much," Klopp said.
