The general consensus on Twitter last night was that Fabinho struggled, and we have to admit we didn’t think he was superb either.
But this compilation of his every touch shows the former AS Monaco man did pretty well, bar a few times when he held onto the ball slightly too long.
Fabinho is a real physical presence and after watching this a few times, we’re pleasantly pleased with his full debut.
He probably needs to be more proactive with his passing and time his tackles better, but this will come.
In the second-half he played in a slightly more advanced position, with Jurgen Klopp encouraging him not to drop between our centre-backs, as it makes our transition from defence to attack more difficult.
One of Fabinho’s great tackles from yesterday that seem to have gone under the radar. pic.twitter.com/6MwTupsYt3

Fabinho vs Chelsea.
Wasn't bad but he's still got a lot of work to do to reach his optimal level and to be ready, because competition in that Liverpool midfield is very strong at the moment. https://t.co/hspOf3KHhP
