Liverpool's Fabinho Produces Sensational Goal-Line Clearance Against Ajax

Liverpool's Fabinho Produces Sensational Goal-Line Clearance Against Ajax

Fabinho produced an incredible goal-line clearance to preserve Liverpool's lead against Ajax in the Champions League.

The Brazilian was deployed at centre-back alongside Joe Gomez following Virgil van Dijk's devastating knee injury that looks set to sideline the Dutchman for the rest of the season.

Van Dijk's absence is a monumental blow for the Premier League champions but Reds fans will have been pleased to see their stand-in centre-back conjure up an excellent piece of defensive awareness this evening.

Dusan Tadic looked like he'd levelled matters when he lobbed Adrian after being played through one-on-one. But just when the ball was about to cross the line, Fabinho got back in to clear the ball in acrobatic fashion.

That Chelsea performance drew some glowing praise from Van Dijk, who believes he is a brilliant option to deputise at the heart of the backline.

"Outstanding," the 29-year-old said, as per The Mirror when discussing his partner's performance at Stamford Bridge.

"I just told him as well I think he was Man of the Match. To keep out a striker like [Timo] Werner and don't let him score, overall he was outstanding.

"Everyone knows how good he is but it shows also that we need everyone. We are a bit unlucky with the injuries now but we'll need everyone back because it's such a long season."
