There are very few in world football that can do the job he does in the middle of the park as well as him and when he is in the side Liverpool look a hell of a lot more stable and balanced.
Indeed, it was another fine performance from him as he helped stifle Arsenal over the course of the game on Thursday, and that did not go unnoticed by his manager:
Jurgen Klopp on Fabinho:
"He was outstanding last night. The amount of balls he won, the areas he played. That's absolutely helpful." #awlive [lfc]
Anfield Watch Verdict
Fabinho was immense last night with the way he snuffed out attacks, with him also pulling off a particularly impressive tackle in the box to stop what could have been a real chance for Arsenal.
His reading of the game is exemplary, and in big matches like that you really appreciate his quality.
With him in that midfield, Liverpool look such a better side than without him.
