Jamie Carragher hails Fabinho as best in the Premier League

Jamie Carragher insists that Liverpool's Fabinho is the best defensive midfielder in the Premier League.

Jamie Carragher has hailed Liverpool's Fabinho as the best defensive midfielder in the Premier League following the Brazilian's excellent start to the 2019-20 season.

Liverpool, who faced competition from other Premier League teams, signed Fabinho early last summer in a deal worth around £39m.

The midfielder has played all four of Liverpool's games this season and was particularly commanding during a convincing 3-0 win over Burnley over the weekend.

Reflecting on Fabinho's performance at Turf Moor, Carragher told The Mirror: "I actually think he's the best in the Premier League now in that position.

"Fernandinho looks like he's fading out of the City team and Rodri is just coming in but I think since Christmas when he came in [to the team] you could argue he was Liverpool's best player last season.

"Right now I think he's the best in that position. I think Liverpool paid between £40-50m, it was a few quid, he had a difficult start but that's where Liverpool have improved this season."

Fabinho, who initially struggled to acclimatise at Anfield, has become an indispensable member of the midfield alongside Jordan Henderson.

Jurgen Klopp's men have enjoyed the perfect start to their title challenge this season, winning all of their first four games with relative comfort.
