      You know,

      We're going to look back at the end of the season and commend this man's versatility. Can see him playing right back for us at the weekend against Palace.

      Testament to Klopp really, he could have thrown Fab in to the team to shut down all the talk about him being a flop, to please the fans who were questioning why he wasn’t playing. Now, he could well be one of our most important players alongside Alisson, Virgil, Robbo, Bobby and Mo. Give him a position to play and you can rely on him to make it look easy. I think the good forward play that Fab has done so far stands him in good stead to be able to fill in at RB, he can pick a pass that lad.

      Fabinho really made me humble concerning Keita. With Mourinho (and to some extent Pep) - both Fab and Keita - would be in a doghouse long time ago. But Jürgen can still make those "slow developers" into cornerstone players. Looking forward to see his magic on Keita. Jürgen can walk on water.

      Bang on.

      His positional awareness is what impresses me the most. His timing also, doesn't get too close, waits and then puts in a surgical tackle. It will be very interesting to see him up and down the flank in Trent's absence (should Klopp decide not to go with Milner, Camacho, Hoever).

      Arguably, no one's picked a ball like he has since a certain 'creative midfielder' left. Must be a Brazillian thing!

      Will he be our RB for the next 4 weeks now that Matip is back? Don't think I'd be too comfortable with Zaha running at Milner down that side.

      He's class.

      Pity Keita didn't settle in as quickly but I expect they will be a starting midfield pair in the next couple of seasons.

      Yeah I’m gutted too - he wasn’t great on Saturday when I felt that was his chance to shine. But I’m sure he’ll get there.

      I'd like to see Keita played more centrally at least until he finds his feet

      I think with a Fabinho-Henderson midfield we are seeing more balance than when we had Gini and Henderson playing together.

      Without doubt, but he has shown it works just as well, if not better with Wijnaldum, and I have no doubt he would work well with Keita or Milner in the 2. Fabinho for me should be a 100% starter in a double pivot setup.

      Still prefer the Wijnaldum and Fabinho combination, mainly because Wijnaldum is more tactically aware and more of a footballer.

      Anyway, I actually think Fabinho with Wijnaldum/Hendo is very much like an Alonso & Masch combination.

      Shame he wasn't 100% fit to start, made a difference when he came on. Our team is more fluid and attacking with him in the middle. 100% starter vs defensive/lesser teams.

      I wondered if there was a reason he didn't start tonight. Definitely a starter for me.

      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.
