An untimely series of injuries to defenders has left Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp short-handed at the back as he tries to keep the Premier League leaders on track for a first title in 29 years at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Brazil midfielder Fabinho impressed Jurgen Klopp enough in central defence in Saturday's 1-0 win over Brighton to reassure the Liverpool manager he can be a reliable stop-gap partner for Virgil van Dijk.
The Brazilian has insisted that he is happy with his decision to move to the Premier League with Liverpool, while also claiming that he turned down the advances of French champions PSG this past summer.
AC Milan's status as one of the fallen giants of European football remains, having endured another frustrating start to the Serie A season this term. However, with the January transfer window on the horizon, there is still a chance that they can save their season with some shrewd moves in the transfer market.
