Liverpool look like an unstoppable juggernaut at the minute. The Reds have been irresistible in the league, dropping just two points this season when they drew controversially with Manchester United. It seems as though nothing can derail the title challenge, however, the Fabinho injury could prove a problem. The Mirror have reported that Liverpool may bring forward their move for Sander Berge to provide cover for Fabinho.
This is a transfer saga that will drag on and on. The Reds are not the only team linked with the Norwegian midfielder, Goal have reported that Chelsea and Napoli are also tracking the Genk man.
The Daily Mirror have suggested that the Reds may look to bring in the 21-year-old sooner rather than later because of the injury to Fabinho. Jürgen Klopp will be without the lanky Brazilian until at least the New Year.
What RTK has to say
Well, well, well. We suggested last week that Liverpool may bring Sander Berge in as soon as possible to cover the Fabinho injury. It appears this school of thought is gaining pupils.

It is no surprise that the absence of our defensive midfielder has added fuel to the Berge fire. When Fabby went down against Napoli it seemed like a nightmare. He has become undroppable in the last six months.
In the long term the injury could serve to benefit us as it has given a stern reminder to the Liverpool coaching staff that we need more depth in the squad. We cannot just expect our best players to live a charmed life for the entire season.
