He is as good as it gets. He can stop any pass and play any pass. He is the best defensive midfielder in the word. He is, of course, Fabinho. Kopites were treated to another world beating performance from Jürgen Klopp’s Brazilian number six (well, number three but you know…football terms). He was immense throughout the game as he thwarted the Spurs attack and sprayed passes throughout the Reds attack. Twitter has reacted to the monstrous Fabinho display.
The Brazilian has already been proclaimed to be the best in the world by pundits and players alike. Speaking at the FIFA20 launch Declan Rice professed his belief that the Brazilian is the best around. His performance against Spurs has only served to further his claim to the throne.
This Liverpool fan highlighted just how many strings to his bow Fabinho has, he can do just about anything you’d want a defensive midfielder to do.
Fabinho is world class through and through. Monsterous at winning back the ball, superb playmaker, always an option to pass and is sublime at breaking the lines with high passes over and in-behind the opposition’s defense. One of the best defensive midfielders in the world.

One Kopite outlined the stats behind the dominating performance from Fabinho, drawing attention to just how good he was at winning the ball and playing it on.
What a performance from Fabinho today. Absolutely top draw, controlled the midfield despite chasing the game early on and supplied our forwards. 3 tackles, 3 interceptions, 2 key passes, 5/7 long passes completed, 6/8 ground duels and 86% passing accuracy.

Respected Liverpool journalist, James Pearce, believes that the Brazilian just won’t stop improving. It’s hard to argue with him.

Kloppholic didn’t mince his words, he believes that Jürgen’s signing from AS Monaco is the best there is.
Fabinho, right now, on this form, is the best defensive midfielder in the world.

The man just stops everything. You can’t even follow him on Twitter.
Just tried to follow Fabinho on Twitter but he blocked me.

Fabinho is that good, he might be able to block the biggest of them all…
Don’t want to get political but reckon Fabinho could block Brexit.
