Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has hailed Fabinho for an “outstanding” performance at centre-back in their 2-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday.

With Joe Gomez and Joel Matip out injured, Fabinho partnered Virgil van Dijk and produced a fine display at Stamford Bridge.

Sadio Mane scored twice in the second half to hand the Reds all three points, while Alisson Becker saved Jorginho’s late penalty.

But Klopp was full of praise for Fabinho, who had his hands full with the lively Timo Werner.

“If Sadio wouldn’t have scored two goals, I think Fab would be a proper contender for man of the match,” the Liverpool manager told a news conference.

“I loved his performance, he played outstanding. He helped us a lot with the ball and in defending as well, so yes, a proper performance.”

Fabinho completed 86 of his 89 passes and made a game-high four interceptions and gained possession 12 times.
