      Fab really got it together. It took quite some time, but I think he's now as good as Milner, Hendo or Gini and still has potential to be even better.

      He’s been better than all of them since he’s settled in. Playing different positions and slotting in seamlessly. Biggest threat going forward from the lot of them too.

      If Fabinho had been fit enough for the entire game yesterday I'm pretty sure we'd have won and won comfortably.

      I fully understand why he didn’t start. But coming back from a muscle injury, playing 90mins in the snow could easily have resulted in a set back.

      Absolutely and it's clear he could only play half hour or so. We'll see him back in the starting lineup come Monday night I'm sure.

      Getting away with a poor one for me last night. Presumably because he’s the Hendo antidote for many.

      Was wasteful and slow in possession I felt.

      Not ready for the more defensive role in his own yet for me. Much better with Hendo / Gini alongside.

      Smashing player and a vital part of squad now but defo not his finest hour in red so far......

      Klopp needs to go back to 4-3-3 quickly with Fab-Gini/Hendi-Keita in midfield.

      Drop Bobby for a couple of games and play either Shaq, Lallana, or Origi up top with Mane and Salah.

      No doubt his positioning will improve, but the way west ham players just coasted past him while he was on the wrong foot wasn't good.
      I counted 3 times, but it may have been more (haven't watched the game again yet)

      This goes back to my point weeks ago about why he has a "minder".

      He'll get there, but he needs someone next to him at the moment.

      We badly missed Henderson last night.
      He gives us more control in the middle, and allows Gini/Fabinho a bit more time and space.

      Looks like he could develop into a rolls Royce DM and dominate the league for years. Starting to remind me of Patrick Viera a lot.

      For me, he reminds me of Lucas, he is pretty much what Lucas should have been without the injures. Once he really settles and hit his peak, I think he could reach world class levels! He was my MOTM today.

      After what I thought was poor game very West Ham he did bounce back well yesterday. Won the tackles when needed and his passing was spot on, especially switching the play to either Milner/Robbo. Hoping for team sake Lovren will be back so we don't have to resort to playing Fabinho in CB for the 1st leg of the UCL

      When he wasn't playing well early on O don't think anyone suggested he wouldn't come good. Along with Naby and the other midfielders we now have the ability to do many things in a game against many different opponents

      ESPN: Summer signing Fabinho has helped with these tactical alterations. Just how much is he blossoming in a Liverpool shirt after a slow start?

      Lijnders: "To adapt to the intensity of our play, that takes time. Not many can do it, and in certain positions it is easier than others. If you are a front player and you come in, and you are used to playing in an attacking way, then it is easier, depending on the specific attributes you have as a player. For him, to play in a midfield three as we did at the start of the season, we knew from the first second, we knew from the videos that it would take time. His impulse of defending forward is absolutely of the highest level. The question as a No. 6 is that you are moving more side to side than forwards. Then of course you have to adapt, and then we find a good solution to change to 4-4-2. And from that moment it helped so much, and then you saw the real Fabinho. Inside the 'organised chaos' that we want, that we like, he is like a lighthouse, he controls it and for me, you can still have the style of the gaffer and how we want to identify ourselves. But with a player like Fabinho in the middle, the ball always goes out round. That's how they say it in Portuguese. His timing, his vision, his calmness, it gives another dimension to our midfield player."

      Typical how the source is reporting it different to how it’s actually being said. By putting he had a slow start is their way of getting a sly dig in there IMO, saying he was sh*t. Why is it deemed a slow start? It’s pretty much becoming the norm for players arriving at the club now that they won’t be going straight into the team, unless you’re Virgil and Alisson obviously. But of course, slow start probably gets them more clicks than if they had put “adapting” instead.

      Yeah it’s been a long day :D

      Very professional performance from this man, could be our 3rd choice CB at this rate.

      Loved how when a tackle needed to be made he was there to make it nice and cleanly.

      Although, would love to have him back in midfield with Gini and Naby, so let's hope we don't see him play CB anytime soon.
