How Fabinho can help solve Jurgen Klopp’s defensive injury crisis for Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp rang the changes for Liverpool’s FA Cup clash with Wolves on Monday but still saw Liverpool’s injury list lengthen further.
Dejan Lovren limped off five minutes into thel 2-1 defeat at Molineux with a hamstring problem and the Croatian will now be unavailable for Saturday’s game against Brighton.
Of all the players Klopp would have wanted to come through that game unscathed, Lovren would have been near the top of his list given Liverpool’s paucity of options in defence at present.
Virgil Van Dijk is currently Klopp’s only fit senior central defender with Joe Gomez (fractured leg) and Joel Matip (broken collarbone) also unavailable for selection.

It is in instances such as this, when a club is hit by a spate of injuries all in the same area of the pitch, that versatile squad players come to the fore.
Fortunately for Klopp, summer signing Fabinho has the adaptability to fill in a variety of positions confidently and the Brazilian is likely to be key for Liverpool at the AMEX.
Here are two ways Klopp can configure his defence around the Brazilian for Liverpool’s weekend trip to the south coast. Another new partner for Van Dijk
Liverpool have gravitated towards a 4-2-3-1 system in recent weeks (Metro)
In recent weeks Klopp has deviated from his tried-and-trusted 4-3-3 formation to a 4-2-3-1, in part to create room for the in-form Xherdan Shaqiri to start and in part to redeploy Salah as a central striker with Roberto Firmino tucked in behind him.
Although he reverted to 4-3-3 against Manchester City in order to pack his midfield, Klopp is expected to return to the 4-2-3-1 against Brighton, particularly as Shaqiri, axed from the start against City, was one of Liverpool’s better performers against Wolves.
If that is the case, Liverpool’s front four picks itself while two of Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum, Naby Keita and James Milner will compete among themselves for starting positions.
Fabinho, of course, is regarded as a central midfielder too, but Liverpool’s lack of available central defenders means he is likely to be pressed into duty in the middle of the back four instead, alongside Van Dijk.

Similarly to Shaqiri, Fabinho delivered a solid individual display in a poor collective performance against Wolves, despite starting in an unfamiliar central defensive role and having to take 16-year-old debutant Ki-Jana Hoever under his wing for 85 minutes.
While Brighton might fancy their chances from set-piece situations against Liv...
