Graeme Souness has criticised Fabinho for his performance against N’Golo Kante during Liverpool’s Super Cup victory over Chelse.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were below their best and needed a penalty shootout to defeat Frank Lampard’s men in Istanbul on Wednesday evening.

Fabinho, who covered 14km during his 120 minutes on the pitch against Chelsea, started in a midfield trio with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner.

But they were all outshone by Kante, who delivered a brilliant performance at the heart of Chelsea midfield in his first start since recovering from injury.

And Souness believes Liverpool were ‘second best’ during their Super Cup clash.

‘This guy [Fabinho], twice he had Kante dance past him as if he had Jacques Cousteau boots, lead boots on,’ Souness told Virgin Media Sport Ireland.

‘I was disappointed with Liverpool tonight, I expected them to be lively, energetic and win comfortably, even by two or three goals.

‘In reality I thought they were second best for the largest part, I thought Chelsea played better football, more energy.

‘Given Chelsea played Sunday and Liverpool played Friday that should not have been the case.’
