Liverpool supporters react to Fabinho celebration footage

Liverpool played out a 1-1 stalemate following a hard-fought contest with title rivals Manchester City on Sunday – and Reds supporters have reacted to recent footage released of midfielder Fabinho.

It was an excellent match between two English heavyweights as Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola enjoyed a share of the spoils following goals from Mohamed Salah and Gabriel Jesus.

Fabinho, 27, was forced to miss the encounter following a hamstring injury sustained against FC Midtjylland last month which is expected to keep the Brazil international out of action until after the international break.

He did not travel with the squad to Manchester and instead watched the action unfold from his home on Merseyside where Fabinho was filmed celebrating Liverpool’s opening goal at the Etihad Stadium.

The Reds were awarded a penalty inside 15 minutes after Sadio Mane was judged to have been fouled by City defender Kyle Walker. Salah took the spot-kick and dully converted to register his 10th goal of the season.

Fabinho – who signed for Liverpool in 2018 for a fee of £39 million [BBC] -was recorded celebrating Salah’s goal by his wife, Rebeca, who later posted the video on Twitter which received an outpour of positive responses from supporters.
