'The jam in the middle': Liverpool fans laud Fabinho after Crystal Palace win
Liverpool crept into the Champions League places on the final day of the season as Sadio Mane set them on their way to a win over Crystal Palace.
Anfield welcomed fans back for the season finale and they were rewarded with a home win which sealed the Reds’ place in the top four as Chelsea struggled at Aston Villa.
Liverpool’s end of season run has been an exceptional one and they deserve their top four place. Remarkably, it’s come in the season where Jurgen Klopp has had to make do with a number of central defensive pairings, in the absence of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.
Gini Wijnaldum played what was his last game in the Liverpool shirt, while a number of other players also put in fine performances on the day to help see off Palace.
But it was the performance of Fabinho which really stood out to some Liverpool fans, who used Twitter to sing his praises.
Here, then, is a look at what was said about Fabinho’s latest Liverpool display against Crystal Palace today.
UP THE REDS, duno how we pulled that’s off but thiago and Fabinho in midfield dominated the last few weeks, get everyone back fit and there’s only two clubs in it next season

Liverpool winning is the best news of the day, sorry to Mo Salah for missing out on the top goal scorer contender 😢.

Coming 3rd this season is incredible, moving fabinho back into midfield saved our season. Shame the owners didn’t invest in 2 CBs on the first of Jan but we are not the type of team who keep spending hundreds of millions on defenders until it works out!

Managed to salvage something from this horrible season. We’ve fought really hard the last couple of months, Fabinho in midfield was vital. #LFC

Only those who know football realise that Fabinho is Liverpool’s most important player
