What was Fabinho's overall display like?

📷 Match Snapshot

For Jurgen Klopp's men to improve on their lacklustre outing against Everton on Sunday, it was key that the tempo to their passing was much higher against Palace, and Fabinho was one of the main instigators of this from the get-go, making sure that possession moved quickly.

It wasn't just his passes from side-to-side, either, but his range of passing, highlighted by his assist for the second goal.

A ⏱️ 45' With Palace sitting deep in their own third of the pitch, Fabinho bides his time before clipping a gorgeous, lofted pass over the top of Patrick van Aanholt at left-back, allowing Mohamed Salah to burst in behind via the channel to score.

⚽ ⏱️ 55' Ten minutes after the break, he would grab a deserved goal in what was probably the strike of the match. After being allowed far too much space in midfield, he strides forward before drilling a cracking strike into the right corner from 30 yards which went past the keeper in a flash.
