EPL: Key Liverpool Player To Miss Brighton Game For This Reason

Liverpool will be without one of their key players for the upcoming Premier League clash with Brighton and Hove Albion billed for this weekend.

The Premier League leaders play hosts to Brighton in one of the week 14 league games on Saturday and they won’t be able to call on the services of star midfielder Fabinho for the game.

Fabinho will miss the game after the Brazilian international accumulated five yellow cards thus leaving to the mandatory one-match ban.

The former AS Monaco star collected his fifth yellow card of the current Premier League season during the last league game, a 2-1 win at the home of Crystal Palace last weekend.

Roberto Firmino scored the winning goal for the Reds with five minutes left on the clock after Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha had cancelled out the opening goal from Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane.

Fabinho could be out for more games after picking up an injury during the Champions League game with Napoli on Wednesday night.

He went off injured in the first half of the game as Liverpool failed to wrap up qualification for the knockout stage of the Champions League.

Liverpool needed to win the Napoli game to qualify but were only able to draw 1-1 at home to the Italians.
