Liverpool fans desperate for Fabinho to start vs Crystal Palace

Loads of Liverpool fans have been calling for Fabinho to start against Crystal Palace as the Reds look to build on their dominant opening day win.

Liverpool got their season off to the perfect start last week, romping to a 4-0 win over West Ham.

While much of the focus was on Naby Keita’s superb debut, fans are now calling for Fabinho to follow suit, as the Brazilian had to settle for a spot on the bench against the Hammers.

The tough tackling midfielder was brought in to plug the gaps in the Reds’ midfield, and fans hope the extra height, power and defensive intelligence can help prevent a predictable meltdown at Selhurst Park.

A Monday night game against the Eagles has a Christian Benteke winner written all over it, especially with young Joe Gomez filling in at centre back in the absence of Dejan Lovren.

Fabinho’s height would be a huge help in preventing that threat, and fans are hoping he replaces Georginio Wijnaldum, who has a tendancy to go missing in away games.
