Fabinho has been on another level for Liverpool so far this season and has arguably been one of the most consistent players in the squad in the opening weeks of the new campaign. He was again on form against Newcastle United in Liverpool’s 3-1 win at Anfield on Saturday, marshalling the midfield well and showing a superb range of passing. According to stats by WhoScored, Fabinho completed 93 per cent of his passes against Newcastle, 76 completed in total, which was more than any other midfield or attacking player on the pitch. Some Liverpool fans on Twitter were understandably thrilled with what they saw from the Brazilian enforcer on Saturday. As good as he was, one fan claimed that Jurgen Klopp’s 2018 signing is “quickly becoming the second-best midfielder” he’s seen play for the club. That is quite an overstatement unless that fan never got to see Steven Gerrard and Xabi Alonso in the heart of the Reds midfield.
