(Video) Fabinho’s shoulder pass in lead up to Mane’s goal largely ignored

Because of how brilliant it was that we had scored a goal, there were some elements of our opener v Chelsea that were largely ignored.

Roberto Firmino delivered a back-heel nutmeg to send Mo Salah through, before Jordan Henderson chipped a delightful ball onto Sadio Mane’s head.

But we actually had the ball for some time before these moments of skill, including Fabinho winning it back via a shoulder pass to Bobby!

Look at the way in which he steps in front of Willian and picks out our no.9. Beautiful!

Luckily, a Liverpool fan on Twitter has cropped the moment and shared it – as it went ignored by Sky Sports at the time – which is fair considering what followed.

Fabinho will anchor the side tonight v FC Porto, and we reckon Jordan Henderson may be allowed a rest following his superb box-to-box exploits – which he’s expertly demonstrated in our past two fixtures.
