Fabinho The Tomkins Times Liverpool Player Of The Month January 2019

 

January 2019 could conceivably called the strangest month of Fabinho’s career. Yet he navigated it superbly to take The Tomkins Times’ player of the month award by a landslide. He was over 300 votes clear in total, and his average of 189 votes per appearance is the joint-highest by any player in any month this season.

Or at least, it’s the most by any player with more than one appearance. A certain Ki-Jana Hoever picked up 333 votes for his substitute showing in the FA Cup at Wolves. And that plays a huge part in why January was so unusual for Liverpool’s Brazilian midfielder. The match at Molineux was Fabinho’s first ever start at centre-back in an almost 300 game professional career. To do that away from home against a top half Premier League club would be tricky enough. However, having to do so while alongside a 16 year old player making his debut is quite remarkable.
