Goalkeeper Alisson Becker believes Fabinho is the most important player at Liverpool football club.

The Brazil midfield maestro has been impressive since joining Liverpool from Ligue 1 side Monaco two years ago and played a total of 39 games in all competitions last term as Liverpool marched on to win their first Premier League title.

As we all know Fabinho usually plays as a defensive midfielder but he was deployed at the heart of the Reds' defence alongside Virgin van Dijk earlier this season.

After the Dutch defender got injured in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park last month, the 27-year-old partnered Joe Gomez, who is now on the sidelines and has quickly undergone surgery during this international break.

The ex-Monaco man also sustained an injury a few weeks ago and is missing for Brazil, but could return to action when the Premier League champions take on table-toppers Leicester City.

However, Alisson has been impressed by his compatriot's work rate and versatility, saying he is always proving his worth on the pitch.

"I believe that Fabinho is the most important player for both the club and the national team," He told Globo Esporto.

"He is a very important player wherever he is, he always proves his worth on the pitch.

"He had been playing for Van Dijk and, unfortunately, with his injury he has been missing for Brazil too.

"He can play as a number six, as a defender, he was a wide player in the past and these characteristics bring even more value to him."
