"Sensational": Liverpool fans drool over Fabinho performance at Ajax

Liverpool will have to make adjustments in the coming months. The Reds are down to two centre backs, not even that in fact, they’re down to one with Joel Matip also feeling tender at the minute. In the side’s first game after the Virgil van Dijk injury they bagged a clean sheet in Amsterdam. Liverpool fans have been drooling over the Fabinho show at Ajax.

Virgil van Dijk injury

The impossible happened last weekend: Virgil van Dijk picked up an injury – a serious one at that.

The Dutchman was scythed down by a reckless, thuggish Jordan Pickford.

The Everton goalkeeper somehow escaped a red card despite flying in at knee height with his studs up.

We learned on Sunday that Big Virg will likely be out for the season after tearing his ACL.

Fabinho fills in

Liverpool fans were anxious to see how the Reds fared without their first choice centre back.

The Reds journeyed to Ajax for their first game without the talismanic defender, a tough test if there ever was one.

Fabinho had to fill in at the back with Joel Matip also injured and the Brazilian put in a Man of the Match performance.

The defensive midfielder was a rock at the back, winning absolutely everything and even making an acrobatic goal line clearance.

Fans react to Fabinho show

He was called world class by a number of fans.

It was an utterly sensational performance from the Brazilian.

His ability to perform under pressure is remarkable.

Even WWE star Sheamus got involved.

He is actually a world leader in two positions.
