Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp needs to recall Fabinho to the starting XI for the Merseyside Derby.
Everton are in town on Sunday and the Toffees will be feeling confident going into the game, with Marco Silva’s side looking better and better as the weeks go by.
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.
Liverpool’s midfield was poor against PSG and surely Fabinho should be brought in – especially with Gylfi Sigurdsson in fine fettle for the visitors.
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.
