Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw on Saturday in the Premier League against Burnley, with some of the Reds supporters on Twitter picking out midfielder Fabinho as a real positive from the game.
Jurgen Klopp’s team had to settle for a point at Anfield in the weekend fixture, despite dominating the contest for the majority and creating plenty of goalscoring chances.
Andy Robertson scored a sublime header in the first-half for this season’s Premier League champions, but they ran into an inspired goalkeeper Nick Pope in net who made a string of top-class saves.
Jay Rodriguez fired in a surprise equaliser to the bottom corner in the second-half and it keeps Burnley’s European ambitions still alive.
Liverpool, who have steamrolled to the title this season, will now need seven points from their remaining three games if they are to reach the 100-point mark.
A selection of Liverpool supporters on social media felt that Fabinho caught the eye in the weekend’s fixture, with one even comparing him to the club’s former midfield maestro Xabi Alonso.
The 26-year-old lifted an intricate through ball to Robertson for his goal, plus sprayed several threatening forward passes towards his teammates.
He is a Brazilian enforcer that has played a key role this season in breaking up play, but the offensive side of his game is quite often overlooked and he reminded everyone of that against Burnley.
Here are some Reds fans discussing the impressive Fabinho:
Fabinho like a prime Xabi Alonso

Fabinho’s passing range is levels. Easily the best holding player in the league. #lfc

One of the most encouraging things for #LFC since the restart has been Fabinho’s return to playing really well. Form had dipped for a while before the stoppage.

Fabinho’s creativity is underrated. Obviously he doesn’t get to show it often. But if keeps doing this , it can be another weapon in our arsenal.
