Liverpool boss Klopp lauds 'outstanding' performance from Fabinho against Chelsea

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for Fabinho after Sunday's win over Chelsea.

The Brazilian midfielder had to fill in at centre-back after Joe Gomez and Joel Matip were ruled out of the game.

And after claiming a clean sheet in the 2-0 victory, Fabinho won plenty of praise from his manager.

Klopp said: "Fabinho, yes! If Sadio wouldn't have scored two goals, I think Fab would be a proper contender for Man of the Match.

"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."
