Speaking to Sky Sports after Liverpool secured a 3-0 win over Burnley on Saturday night, Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher heaped praise on Fabinho.
Carragher said: “Fernandinho looks like he’s fading out of the City team and Rodri is just coming in but I think since Christmas when he came in [to the team] you could argue he was Liverpool’s best player last season. Right now I think he’s the best in that position. I think Liverpool paid between £40-50m, it was a few quid, he had a difficult start but that’s where Liverpool have improved this season. If you think of the start of last season how well they were playing but they didn’t have Fabinho.”
It’s very hard to disagree with Jamie on this one! Fabinho has completely transformed this Liverpool side, this stat says it all…
