Klopp must turn to Fabinho to deal with Sigurdsson threat

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp needs to recall Fabinho to the starting XI for the Merseyside Derby.

They’re up to sixth in the Premier League table, and may be looking to pounce on a wounded Liverpool after they lost 2-1 to Paris Saint-Germain in midweek in the Champions League.

The Reds will be disappointed with that defeat, and Klopp will be looking for a response against their bitter rivals at Anfield.

One man who’ll be hoping for a start is Fabinho – and Klopp ought to consider it.

Fabinho needed to shackle Sigurdsson?

The Brazilian is being used very sparingly at the moment, which has led to speculation he could even leave in January.

The Iceland international has been one of Everton’s best players this term, scoring six goals and making two assists.

He could be a big danger on Sunday, and Fabinho is arguably the man best equipped to neutralise his attacking threat.

Fabinho, a £43.7 million summer signing from AS Monaco (Sky Sports), is probably the most defensive-minded of all Liverpool’s midfield options, and would surely pose Sigurdsson the biggest challenge.
