How many better defensive midfielders in the Premier League are there than Fabinho?
Or perhaps we should be now be asking how many better there are on the planet…?
The Brazilian enjoyed another faultless performance on Saturday against Burnley, helping Liverpool to a 3-0 win at Turf Moor.
Fabinho bullied Burnley’s combative midfielders, passed the ball crisply and with purpose and showed composure every time he was being harried while in possession.
He’s 100% one of the first names on the team-sheet. To think at this same stage last season, he hadn’t played a minute of football for us.
Those who prematurely called him a flop are looking sillier by the day. What a footballer!
