Liverpool fans have responded to accusations that Fabinho cleared his nose on to Eden Hazard while he was receiving treatment.

The Brazilian, according to a skewed TV angle, appeared to block his right nostril and clear his left right next to an injured Eden Hazard.

Naturally, opposition fans reacted with shock and disgust but despite the fact he does clear his nose, it was not as close to the Chelsea forward as some believed.

The depth of TV broadcasts is often skewed and Liverpool fans on Twitter have cleared the matter up.

The fact that neither Hazard, Chelsea’s medical staff or referee Michael Oliver reacted to the incident says a lot.

The Brazilian clearly didn’t get any of his phlegm on Hazard and the whole uproar was more down to opposition fans wanting to paint Liverpool a certain way.

Here is how fans on Twitter reacted.

There are a lot of non-Liverpool fans that are desperate to see them fail and instances like this are just attempts to slur the Merseysiders when there is really nothing to talk about.

If Fabinho had spat or cleared his nose on Hazard, most Reds would have been just as disgusted as opposition fans but it’s a moot point.
