19 December 12:28 GMT
Summer signing Fabinho has been out of the first-team but recent performances have shown his quality with an assist for Sadio Mane in the 3-1 against Manchester United, where he bossed the midfield and the Brazilian has said it was just about getting used to the rhythm of the premier league.
Jurgen Klopp is known for his introduction to new players gradually with Andrew Robertson, Nabi Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri who have all been kept back until they get into the rhythm of the team before being let loose and Fabinho has hinted to this.
He told Liverpool’s website:
“The intensity is different from what I am used to [but] I’ve got into the rhythm of the team and got used to the style of play.
“The role that the manager asks of me is what I’m used to, so there were no problems in adapting in that respect.
“Obviously in the first games I didn’t have that automatic understanding with the rest of the team, so I had to work a bit harder to understand other players’ runs, but I can do this faster now.”
