Liverpool fans praise Fabinho’s performance in comeback victory over Tottenham

The holding midfielder helped the Reds boss the game throughout.

Liverpool suffered an early scare against Tottenham at Anfield yesterday but recovered to win 2-1 and maintain their outstanding home record.

The Reds remain six points ahead at the top of the Premier League, as Harry Kane’s first minute goal was cancelled out by Jordan Henderson before Mo Salah’s penalty clinched the win.

When Liverpool opened the scoring against Spurs in June’s Champions League final, they largely shut the game down with an iron fist.

But Mauricio Pochettino’s side were unable to do the same yesterday, with the Reds swarming forward at almost every opportunity and always looking likely to turn the scoreline around, even when they trailed 1-0 at half time.

But key to monopolising control of the midfield was Fabinho, who produced another commanding performance at the base of the engine room.

The supporters absolutely love the Brazilian, with some on Twitter feeling he is the best holding midfielder in world football right now.

There’s no doubt he had too much for Spurs’ options in the heart of the pitch, where Dele Alli in particular was just anonymous throughout.
