Liverpool fans react to performance of Fabinho in Chelsea win

The Brazilian was in fine form against Frank Lampard’s team.

Liverpool flexed their title credentials once again with a dominant display during their 2-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

A Sadio Mane double saw the champions home after Andreas Christensen was sent off just before half-time for the Blues.

Some intrigue had surrounded Liverpool prior to kick-off after it became apparent that Fabinho would start the game at centre-back.

Supporters needn’t have worried, however, with the Brazilian putting in a fine performance against Timo Werner.

Fabinho signed for the Reds in 2018 for £43.7 million from Monaco and has excelled in central midfield under Jurgen Klopp.

It would appear, however, that the 26-year-old is capable of playing in defence, giving Klopp some food for thought.

The £100,000-a-week performer is an integral member of Klopp’s team and his versatility looks like being useful too.

Certainly, Liverpool supporters were impressed with his performance at Stamford Bridge, taking to Twitter to react about the man with 12 caps for his country.

The Reds take on Arsenal next time around and after this display, it’d be no surprise to see Fabinho keep his place in defence.

Here is a selection of Tweets from Liverpool supporters regarding the performance of the makeshift defender.
