Most Liverpool fans express happiness at Fabinho’s centre-back display on Twitter

The Brazilian did a brilliant job at centre-back for Liverpool yesterday.

Liverpool picked up a hard-fought but deserved 1-0 win over Brighton in the Premier League yesterday. Mo Salah scored from the penalty spot and Liverpool stretched their lead at the top of the Premier League to seven points.

But it seems those were not the only strings to his bow. Fabinho is clearly more than capable at centre-back as well.

With Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez injured, and Joel Matip only just back from a collarbone fracture, the Brazilian was asked to slot in alongside Virgil van Dijk for Liverpool yesterday.

The Brazilian put in a great display and his ability on the ball actually gave Liverpool something of a different dimension. Occasionally, he was caught out, but very rarely. When he was, his partner VVD was there to have his back.

The pair looked like they had been playing together for years and Liverpool fans were very pleased with the Brazilian’s efforts…
