Liverpool fans made an interesting observation about Fabinho during 3-1 win v Torino

Liverpool’s summer signings played in front of the Anfield crowd for the first time on Tuesday night, as Jurgen Klopp’s men rounded off pre-season with a 3-1 victory over Torino.

The Reds’ faithful got the opportunity to see the likes of Alisson Becker, Naby Keita and Fabinho in the flesh for the first time following their big-money summer moves and expectation levels will have increased yet further following the team’s fourth successive pre-season win.

Robert Firmino broke the deadlock in the 21st minute before Georginio Wijnaldum doubled Liverpool’s lead shortly afterwards. Andrea Belotti pulled a goal back for the visitors just after the half-hour mark but Daniel Sturridge came off the bench in the second half to finish the match off as a contest.

Liverpool’s players will now head into their Premier League opener against West Ham this weekend full of confidence and ready to secure all three points.

It will be interesting to see which players Klopp brings into his starting line-up for the team’s first competitive match of the season.

Alberto Moreno captained the side against Torino but the Spanish full-back is likely to drop out this weekend for Andy Robertson. Nathaniel Phillips, however, could make his Premier League debut with Klopp short on options at centre-back.

Three of Liverpool’s summer signings look certain to start: Keita, Alisson and Fabinho, while Xherdan Shaqiri, who was a substitute against Torino, should find himself on the bench again on Sunday.

FABINHO MISSED PENALTY V TORINO
It will also be fascinating to see who will be on penalty duty after Fabinho missed from the spot against Torino.

The Brazilian midfielder, who joined Liverpool in a £43.7 million deal from AS Monaco in May, dragged his spot-kick wide – presumably to the surprise of his manager.

Fabinho scored 15 out of 15 penalties for Monaco in Ligue 1 and is usually so reliable from 12 yards.

Still, don’t be shocked if Klopp keeps the 24-year-old on penalty duty, given his record at his previous club was so impressive.

LIVERPOOL FANS’ MADE AN OBSERVATION ABOUT FABINHO
Before Fabinho was switched to centre-back for the second half, a surprising number of Liverpool fans said the South American midfielder reminded them of Steven Gerrard – his technique, movement and even the way he carries himself on the pitch.

Praise doesn’t come any higher than that – Gerrard is arguably the best player in Liverpool’s history – and if Fabinho is half as successful as the Anfield legend that transfer fee will look like peanuts in years to come.
