Lots of Liverpool fans were disappointed with the performance of Fabinho in their 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Liverpool’s Premier League winning streak finally came to an end this weekend – cue the ridiculous overreactions and outlandish takes from pundits and fans up and down the country.
But while 25 points from their opening nine fixtures is nothing to be sniffed at, a number of Reds players were extremely disappointing on Sunday, and none more so than Fabinho.
The Brazil international has been a model of consistency since Jurgen Klopp brought him to Anfield for a fee of around £39m, with even rival fans noting his impeccable form since breaking into the team.
Genuine question: since Fabinho has been properly integrated into the Liverpool team, has he dropped one sub-par display? I swear I’ve never seen him drop a performance less than a 7/10. His consistency is unbelievable.

He wasn’t anywhere close to his best against the Red Devils though, picking up a yellow card and registering just one tackle and one interception, per WhoScored.
While there is no question the 25 year-old has become a fixture of this Liverpool team, starting all but one top-flight game this campaign, fans are crucifying his display this weekend.
Take a look at some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Superb first half by Gini, but Fabinho has been awful. No pace and always late to the challenge.#MUNLIV

Hendo was bad yeah but how awful Fabinho really was man. Rare bad game from him in a long time

This has been absolutely horrible, there’s no getting away from it,
Fabinho has been absolutely awful,
Henderson is NOT a right winger
Did we really need to take Origi off?
Mane has been a ghost since the disallowed goal,
Firmino has done nothing since minute 1

I thought Fabinho was dreadful in possession, Gini played ok I thought , I think keita might take Henderson’s place soon
