Many Liverpool fans have been reacting in delight to the revelation that Fabinho could make his 100th appearance for the Reds against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

This season, the Brazil international has averaged a match rating of 6.94 from 11 Premier League starts, making 2.6 tackles and 2.3 clearances per game while playing out of position (Whoscored).
