Liverpool midfielder Fabinho dropped a 10/10 performance against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night – a welcome return to form for the Brazilian.
In truth he hasn’t been at his best since an ankle injury in November earlier this season, but it now seems those tough days are behind him.
Fab helped control the game, with Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum alongside him, as the Reds steamrolled the Londoners to take one step closer to the Premier League title.
Now, only two points are required to declare Liverpool the 2019/20 Champions of England. We could actually win it without kicking a ball, should Chelsea take points off Manchester City tomorrow.
Even though Anfield was empty, supporters were in full voice on social media over Fabinho’s stellar performance against Roy Hogdson’s Palace.
The midfielder capped off a memorable night with an incredible goal. The Brazilian picked up the ball 35 yards from home and fired a rocket into the back of the net, giving the goalkeeper next-to-no chance.
Even before his thunderbolt, Liverpool fans were all over Twitter gushing over Fabinho’s performance. Take a look at some selected tweets below:
Fabinho well and truly back to being the player he was before the ankle injury he suffered back in November. #LFC

First half thoughts…
🛑 Fabinho, immense. What an assist for Salah’s goal.
💥 Trent’s is a free kick mastermind. Please don’t take any free kicks off him again.
🇧🇷 Bobby quiet, Hopefully he can finally get his first PL home goal of the season.
So far, so good 🙌

Fabinho has been absolutely incredible in that first half. Positioning, movement, control and awareness all superb. Not to mention the assist. His only bad moment was the free kick! #LFC
