Fabinho has revealed that he is now playing with confidence after a slow start to his Liverpool career
Jurgen Klopp said Fabinho was “absolutely outstanding” on Sunday in Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over rivals Manchester United.
The win that took Liverpool back to the top of the Premier League table was just the midfielder’s sixth Premier League start since moving to the club from Monaco as part of a €50 million transfer in the summer.
“I don’t know if I am a starter now,” Fabinho said. “I have played a lot in the last few games and I have to make the most of the opportunities. I am playing with confidence; I understand well with my teammates. As I always say it is a decision for the coach.
“Against Napoli, other teammates played and they did very well. Today we played with different players and the team maintained the same level which is the most important. I’m very happy.”
“The three points are very important to continue at the top of the table and also because it was a very important game for the fans, against Manchester United,” Fabinho said. “It is a classic game here. It was very important. We knew that if we played with full strength, if we did our best, we would have big chances to win, and that is what happened.”
