Sadio Mané and Thiago Alcântara put in impressive performances at Stamford Bridge, but it was the Brazilian who shone the brightest in the win over Chelsea.

On May 28, 2018, rumours of Liverpool’s interest in Fabinho started circulating on Twitter. Just a couple of hours later he was announced as the club’s latest signing.
With Fabinho having made his return to first team training this week, Reds around the world are wondering whether or not Klopp will start his Brazilian destroyer against a lacklustre Manchester United side. Matt Ramirez tells us why he thinks Fabi should start… on the bench.
Following news of Fabinho’s month-long injury layoff, midfield concern has been the topic of conversation amongst Liverpool fans. Having scraped past Brighton and blown away the Blues all seems good however, as Cameron Rimmer gives his thoughts on the midfield ‘situation’.
It’s undeniably something we could have done without. Having been a domineering, composed lynchpin in the Reds midfield thus far this season and, in truth, since around this time last year, the Brazilian’s expected eight-week absence was far from ideal news going into the season’s busiest spell. It’s quite possible that as one door closes, a number of others may open.
The Brazilian showed just how good he is as he netted his second Liverpool goal in a dominant performance against Manchester City.
