Fabinho looked lost as he came off the bench and played a part in Liverpool’s downfall at the Falmer against Brighton and somehow avoided a red card.

Fabinho against Brighton

The Brazilian came off the bench at the 84th minute on the clock at the Amex Stadium. Fabinho looked far off his touch as soon as he stepped onto the field.

The 29-year-old’s touch was wayward and he was short in crucial challenges. The midfielder lost both of his attempted duels and took out Brighton’s striker Evan Ferguson with a studs-up tackle.

The young Irishman was forced off the pitch while, after initially showing the Red’s midfielder a yellow card, referee David Coote awaited the verdict from VAR.

Although the Brazilian was expected a clear red card, the decision was upheld and he remained on the pitch.

Glenn on the Yellow card to Fabinho

Speaking on this former Brighton striker Glenn Murray said

“For me, that’s a match-changing incident, so it needs to be reviewed.”

“ I can’t understand how the VAR referee Neil Swarbrick can say that isn’t red. It’s a terrible challenge.”

He also said

“You can see from the player’s reaction, he knows it’s a red. He’s just waiting to be sent off and, somehow, he remains on the field.”

“That’s just me as a professional footballer, not as an ex-Brighton player.”

Ongoing midfield problem

There will be a few Reds fans who could argue about Fabinho’s red card but no one can disagree this is his worst season. The Brazilian is having an abysmal season in Red’s shirt and he is accompanied by other Red’s midfield duo, Thiago Alcantara and Jordan Henderson.

The Lighthouse has played 18 matches in the Premier League and has zero contributions in goals and assists. Klopp needs to make this midfield trio work to put any challenge for the top 4 spot.

Will the Reds be able to revive this season?
