Fábio Henrique Tavares, known as Fabinho, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for Premier League club Liverpool and the Brazil national team.
He is a patrolling defensive midfielder who agreed to a deal to join Liverpool from AS Monaco on May 28, 2018.
The midfielder officially became a Red on July 1 and took the No.3 shirt for the team's first pre-season friendly of the summer at Chester FC.
Jürgen Klopp preached patience when it came to the Brazilian's adaptation to English football after five seasons in Ligue 1.
He would make his debut for the club on September 18, 2018, when he appeared as an injury-time substitute in a 3-2 victory over Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield in the Champions League.
He was handed his first start eight days later as the Reds were beaten 2-1 by Chelsea in the third round of the League Cup.
It was towards the end of October, though, where Fabinho began to find his feet in Klopp's side. Man of the Match performances against Red Star Belgrade and Manchester United quickly followed.
