‘Looks the business’ Fans gush over Fabinho’s opening Anfield 45

Posted by

Fabinho had a few nervy moments in the opening three or four minutes tonight…

But from that point onwards, bossed the midfield like a general.

The Brazilian is a real physical presence, but not only did he win tackles and interceptions, but consistently drove forward with the ball at his feet.

He’s been typecast as a no.6, a pure holding midfielder, but what we’ve seen against Red Star Belgrade is a traditional no.8 – a box-to-box enforcer!

Naturally, Reds on Twitter were delighted with Fabinho’s early performance and reckon it’ll allow him to keep his spot in the side.
