Fabinho established himself as one of the top midfielders in the French Ligue 1 for Monaco during recent years. The Brazilian famously helped Monaco to win the Ligue 1 title and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League during the 2016-17 season.

He earned a £39 million move to Liverpool this summer. After churning out some solid displays for the Reds during pre-season, many fans would have expected Fabinho to start for the Reds in the League or at least make appearances off the bench.

Things have not gone according to plan for the 24-year-old. He has yet to appear for the Reds during any of their four League encounters played so far and he was not even included in the match-day squad during the wins against Brighton and Leicester City.

The rumor mills suggest that he has not yet adapted to English football and lacks the fitness required to compete in the Premier League.

Liverpool has so far impressed in the League and this makes Fabinho’s chances of selection to the starting for the upcoming League fixture against Tottenham next weekend slim. Spurs are a side that Klopp cannot afford to experiment against so he is better off starting with players who have already tasted action and delivered this season.

Gini Wijnaldum and Naby Keita have also been solid in midfield which harms Fabinho’s chances of earning his first-team action. The competition for places in midfield is so tough that not even regular club captain Jordan Henderson is assured of regular first-team action.

Fabinho did earn his first competitive minutes of this season when Brazil beat the US 2-0 in an international friendly on Saturday. He can hope that the action that he saw against the Stars and Stripes can give him the confidence that he needs to try and push for a place in the Liverpool starting XI.

As things stand, he is a contender to be the biggest flop of this season but it is still early on this season.
