Liverpool fans on Twitter are adamant that Fabinho must play ahead of Henderson

Liverpool travel to The Emirates to take on Arsenal at the weekend and whilst the stats may be in their favour from previous clashes, it will be interesting to see who Jurgen Klopp plays in midfield for the clash. Fabinho is coming to form now after signing back in May, but it could be a game for the tried and tested Jordan Henderson, although the fans are calling for the former.

Fabinho has shown in his last few games that he is more than just a defensive colossus capable of winning the ball back and hoofing it. He is a seasoned professional and the way he carries himself on a football pitch simply oozes class. Whether his team is in or out of possession he looks assured in himself and it will be no surprise to see him start at The Emirates and show the likes of Granit Xhaka how a real midfielder plays.

His days in Monaco saw him start out as a right-sided full-back, and what he will have learnt bombing up and down the right flank will have been a valuable lesson as he transferred to being a midfielder. When he first joined Anfield the fans will have expected him to play as a defensive midfielder but it seems clear that he’s more than capable of being a box-to-box man who can spray passes forward and turn defence into attack quickly.

The Reds want to see Fabinho start against Arsenal and will hope he can show what he’s all about when the world is watching him at The Emirates.
