Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho had an absolute stormer for the club tonight as they beat Liverpool 2-1 in their Premier League clash.
The reigning champions have closed the gap to just four points now as they move up to second place in the table with a hugely important victory over the Reds.
Fernandinho was tireless throughout to help deliver this crucial result, and the veteran Brazilian is now the one being lavished with praise on social media.
A number of fans and pundits alike have all been wowed by the way Fernandinho played, singling him out ahead of the players who scored the goals to win the game – Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane.
Despite being 33 years of age, Fernandinho truly doesn’t look like slowing down any time soon, and was obviously badly missed during some recent games he sat out through injury.
City recently slipped up with defeats against Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Leicester City, but they’ve shown Liverpool they’re not about to give up on this title race, and Fernandinho deserves huge credit for running the show in midfield…
