Fabinho was superb against Red Star on Wednesday evening – and he was pretty good today v Cardiff as well!
The Brazilian started alongside Gini Wijnaldum again and was heavily involved both defensively and offensively.

Fabinho gave away possession on a few occasions, but that’s because he plays incisive forward passes instead of always taking the easy option.
For the third goal, Fab found Mo Salah on the right after a clever shift of feet – and the Egyptian assisted Xherdan Shaqiri.
For the fourth, Fabinho won a tackle in the middle which fell to Sadio Mane, who combined with Salah to score.
It took a while for the 25-year-old to get in our side, but now he’s in, it looks like we’ll struggle without him.
Fabinho is extremely physical, brave and has technical skill.
Fans on Twitter lauded his role in our 4-1 victory, that sees us head to the top of the Premier League table for the time being.
You pay 40 million plus, you get #Fabinho. Money does buy you class! #LFC

Fabinho is the underrated player in the last two games. Doing his bit from the deep position, starting attacks. Massively improved our midfield. Let's hope he continues his form. Fabinho, Gini and Shaqiri is the best midfield. Perfect combination.

Great win. Top of the league. Can never complain about that. Shaqiri is really impressing. Fabinho impressive too. Long may it continue.
