Liverpool fans excited by prospect of Fabinho making debut against Tottenham Hotspur

Liverpool will be very happy with how the Premier League table is looking heading into the international break.

Jurgen Klopp’s side currently sit at the top of the standings after taking maximum points from their first four games.

Chelsea and Watford share the same number of points, but their goal difference is slightly inferior to the Reds.

Despite getting the results that they need, Liverpool have not set the world alight with regards to their performances.

In fact, the Merseyside outfit were lucky to come away from the King Power Stadium with a 2-1 victory over Leicester City on Saturday.

Liverpool have not quite found their rhythm yet, but summer signings Naby Keita and goalkeeper Alisson have swiftly become fan favourites.

Fabinho was the club’s first signing of the summer but he is yet to make his competitive debut.

The midfielder has not even made the bench in the last three league matches, but while speaking to the media, Klopp suggested that he could make his first appearance after the international break.

Fabinho does not have an injury, but the manager does not deem him at optimum fitness to be thrown into contention.

The 24-year-old, who is valued at £40.5m by Transfermarkt, will go away with the Brazil team and then return for what could be his debut against Tottenham Hotspur on September 15.

On Reddit, some Liverpool fans spoke of their desire to get Fabinho on the pitch.
