Liverpool fans online were disappointed with the exclusion of Fabio Carvalho from the starting XI for their Premier League game against Bournemouth on August 27.Instead of Fabio Carvalho, Jurgen Klopp has named a midfield three comprising of Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, and Harvey Elliott. The only change made by Klopp from their defeat to Manchester United last weekend was to start Fabinho in place of James Milner.
Carvalho made a second-half substitute appearance at Old Trafford during the Reds’ defeat last time around, coming on for Milner.The former Fulham prodigy had a great showing and looked lively in attack. Carvalho’s shot rebounded off goalkeeper David de Gea for Mohamed Salah to head it home for the Reds’ solitary goal in the 2-1 defeat.
Following his great cameo against United, many Reds supporters on Twitter expected the Portuguese to start against Bournemouth. However, their wish hasn’t been granted by manager Klopp.A few fans have questioned the German tactician about the team he has decided to go with against the Cherries. Here are a few tweets from that regard:
Carvalho is one of three new summer signings made by the Reds in the ongoing transfer window. The other two are right-back Calvin Ramsay and forward Darwin Nunez.
