Fábio Henrique Tavares (born 23 October 1993) is a Brazilian international footballer who plays as a midfielder for Liverpool, signing from Monaco in 2018 for a fee of £39,300,000.

Liverpool careerEdit

With the midfield being widely regarded as the weakest part of the team, as well as the impending departure of Emre Can to Juventus, it was clear that Jurgen Klopp was looking to strengthen in this area. The signing of Naby Keita was already announced, but it was reported that he was also looking to strengthen the defensive side, with Jordan Henderson the only first-team player in this position.

On 28 May 2018, reports in France began to come through linking Fabinho with a move to Anfield, reports that were confirmed by club journalists hours later. In the evening, the club confirmed that a deal had been agreed to sign Fabinho from Monaco, and that the transfer would be formally completed on 1 July for an initial reported fee of £39,300,000.

On 7 July 2018, Fabinho made his non-competitive debut, starting in a 7-0 friendly win over Chester. The Brazilian wore the number 3 shirt, but the club stated this would not be his official shirt number. Despite this, it was later confirmed that he would wear the number 3 shirt for the 2018-19 season.

After failing to appear in the squad for the first few weeks of the season, on 18 September, Fabinho made his Liverpool debut as a late substitute in a 3-2 win over Paris Saint Germain. Just over a week later, the Brazilian made his first start, playing almost the full 90 minutes in a 2-1 cup defeat to Chelsea.

After a few more promising substitute appearances, Fabinho returned to the starting lineup on 24 October against Red Star Belgrade, putting in a man-of-the-match performance in a 4-0 win. Three days later, he made his first league start, playing 90 minutes in a 4-1 win over Cardiff.

On 16 December 2018, Fabinho started in a 3-1 win over Manchester United, assisting Sadio Mane’s opener with a sublime dinked ball over the top of the United defence. Five days later, the Brazilian once again created the Reds’ opening goal, this time with a grounded cross for Mohamed Salah to fire Liverpool ahead in a 2-0 win over Wolves. On 26 December, Fabinho came off the bench to head in his first goal for the club in a 4-0 victory over Newcastle at Anfield.
