Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has provided a positive update on the ankle injury he sustained back in November last year.

Fabinho sustained an ankle injury during Liverpool’s Champions League clash against Napoli at Anfield. The Brazilian has not played for the Reds since.

However, things are starting to look up for the midfielder, as he has stated that everything should resume back to normal soon.

“My ankle is getting better, I trained by myself this week,” Fabinho told Telefoot this weekend, as quoted by The Liverpool Offside.

“I was working with the ball again. I feel good and confident. For example, I make changes in direction, but also exercises with the ball. I am very confident [about a quick comeback].”

“I think I can resume soon, but we will see with the medical staff.”

This is great news for Liverpool. Despite the fact the likes of Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum have been able to cover Fabinho’s absence, it is still great news to hear he is on the mend.

There is no denying Liverpool are a better side when he is playing. The stability he gives the defence is something many in world football can’t do from midfield.

Liverpool’s next clash is against Manchester United this weekend in the Premier League at Anfield. It does sound as if Fabinho will not feature against United, but he is not too far away.
