Gary Neville explains why Fabinho is the best defensive midfielder

Gary Neville has praised Liverpool midfielder Fabinho and explained why he thinks the Reds man is currently the best defensive midfielder. Fabinho has started the season in good form as Liverpool has kicked-off the Premier League with a perfect unbeaten run, having won 5 out of 5 games so far this season.
"I think Fabinho at the moment is the best (defensive midfielder out there)," said Neville on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football. "Because what Fabinho does, actually, is he doesn't sit back in games. "There are holding midfield players who just play horizontally, pass sideways, and they always shift this way and that way like they're shuttling across. "Fabinho plays vertically as well. He goes forward with his passes, he moves forward and steps in and wins the ball back."
The Reds start their Champions League campaign on Tuesday, September 17 with a game against Napoli. via Mirror.
