Liverpool supporters have been making a lot of noise in recent times after seeing their team enter the season’s first international break with a 100% record in the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp’s men went into their most recent clash against Leicester City having got past West Ham, Crystal Palace, and Brighton in their opening three matches, in which time they didn’t concede a goal. And despite failing to produce their best football at the King Power Stadium last time out, the Reds got the job done thanks to first half goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, as although Rachid Ghezzal got one back for the Foxes after the break, it wasn’t enough to inspire a Leicester comeback.
Subsequently, there have been many delighted Liverpudlians up and down the country in recent times, with several already looking ahead to the near future, and wondering who summer signing Fabinho may play with in the middle of the park.
Suspect we won’t have to wait much longer to see this man in action for Liverpool
Who would you play him with in midfield, Reds? pic.twitter.com/JC8Drx96lI

The 24-year-old, valued at £40.5 million by Transfermarkt, made the move to Anfield during the close season from Monaco but has so far yet to appear for Klopp’s side, what with the likes of Naby Keita, Georginio Wijnaldum, James Milner, and Jordan Henderson getting the nod in the heart of Klopp’s midfield.
But with the games set to come thick and fast in the next few weeks, Liverpool fans are likely to finally see their summer signing take to the field, although it’s fair to say that plenty of them can’t agree on who he should play with in that central midfield area…

Milner is surely the first man on the team sheet this year.

Keita wijnaldum and Fabinho, Henderson doesn’t offer enough and Milner is ok for the smaller teams, our midfield against Brighton got caught out far too much like we was just playing with defence and forwards

Gini and naby.

Gotta be Milner & Keita but can’t see Klopp dropping Hendo so most probably Milner will make way
