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.
According to WhoScored, Fabinho provided one assist, took five shots, had a pass accuracy of 78.8%, won one header, made one tackle, and played two key passes.
Liverpool are now at the top of the Premier League table with 45 points from 17 matches, a point clear of second-placed Manchester City.
With respect to Xherdan Shaqiri, Fabinho was man of the match. #LIVMUN— Jim Beglin (@jimbeglin) December 17, 2018
