Liverpool midfielder Fabinho was in outstanding form last night as the Reds hammered Crystal Palace 4-0 at Anfield to put them within two points of the Premier League title.
The Brazilian provided the assist for Liverpool’s second, chipping a superb pass for Mo Salah to score in the first half, before scoring himself with a piledriver from 30 yards out on 55 minutes.
Supporters were waxing lyrical about Fabinho after his superb display:
What a signing

The 26-year-old seems to have fully recovered from the ankle injury he sustained in the first half of the season. Before lockdown, he had been struggling for form, leading to manager Jurgen Klopp dropping him for the 3-2 defeat to Atletico Madrid.
However, Fabinho has looked very fresh and sharp in both games against Everton and Palace since the Premier League returned earlier this month. He will now be very keen to continue in this vein for the remaining seven league fixtures.
