Jim Beglin has stated on Twitter that Fabinho was Liverpool’s best player against Manchester United, not Xherdan Shaqiri.

Liverpool got the better of United 3-1 at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

Shaqiri stoke the headlines, as the 27-year-old winger scored twice in the space of seven minutes in the second half.

 

The Switzerland international actually came on as a substitute on 70 minutes, and once again, the former Stoke City star proved why he is so highly rated.

Former Liverpool left-back Beglin, though, believes that the best player for Jurgen Klopp’s side against United was Fabinho.

The 25-year-old Brazil international defensive midfielder started the match against the Red Devils and played for the entire 90 minutes.
