Fabinho started the Merseyside Derby today, probably because Jordan Henderson was suspended and unavailable.
But we’re mighty glad the Brazilian did as he actually played very well in our midfield two alongside Gini Wijnaldum.
On Sunday, Fabinho played an especially excellent first-half, which was full of tackles, interceptions and quick forward passes.
The 25-year-old always looks up and is prepared to pass the ball off his first-touch, which speeds up our transitions.
For us, it’s a no-brainer that Fab should be in the team all of the time – but we’ll see if he keeps his spot in the lineup in two days’ time away at Burnley.
