Episode details

Liverpool escaped their visit to Villa Park with perhaps more bad news than good after an injury to Fabinho ruled the Brazilian out of the FA Cup final.

We’ll be waiting with bated breath ahead of our clash with Real Madrid in the Champions League final, though there’s at least some hope of having our midfield enforcer back in the squad for the potentially season-defining fixture.

Our No.3 was one of several topics on the table for us here at the Empire of the Kop:

  • Is Sadio Mane criminally underrated?

  • How should Jurgen Klopp handle Fabinho’s hamstring injury?

  • Do Liverpool need to react Manchester City’s purchase of Erling Haaland? Stan Collymore shares his thoughts…


Frightening thought as it might be, Liverpool could conceivably end the 2021/22 campaign with only the Carabao Cup to our name…

On the other hand, of course, a treble seems a perfectly realistic aim, as untimely as Fabinho’s injury is.

Jurgen Klopp won’t allow a smidge of defeatism within the squad, however, not with so much left to play for, and we’ll continue flying the flag high for every remaining game.

Bring it on, Reds!
