Liverpool is endeavoring to win silverware on multiple fronts this season and Fabinho expects an “intense” schedule. As the Reds prepare to battle on three fronts in the coming weeks Fabinho thinks his football club Liverpool is primed and ready for the intensity of their season.
From the first three Premier League games of the season, Liverpool had seven points going into the international break, with a trip to Leeds United on Sunday next on the schedule. Following that trip to Elland Road, Jurgen Klopp’s men face Milan in the Champions League, followed by a trip to Norwich City in the EFL Cup and a top-flight home game against Crystal Palace.
Looking ahead to the matches to come, Brazil midfielder Fabinho told the club’s official website: “It will be really intense, it will be tough. But we’re ready for this. I didn’t go to the national team so it will be almost two weeks without playing, so I want to play again. I want to play in the Premier League and the Champions League.”
“I’m excited for this moment, we will play every three days, so everyone needs to be ready. The manager will need every player. The mentality of the group is really good, everyone is ready for this, everyone is in good shape. So we’re very excited for this moment.”
Last month only Fabinho signed a new long-term contract with the Reds and is contemplating a tough test against Marcelo Bielsa’s side this weekend. He said, “Leeds are a really intense team, a really good team. We played there last year without supporters and without fans in it was really tough. It was a tough game, it was 1-1.”
“We know their qualities and I think with the fans it will be something more for them. But, as I said, almost all the games are hard and tough in the Premier League. We want to go there and win the game. It’s not easy to play against a team like Leeds but we have to be ready for everything.”
