Fabinho admits Liverpool problems: A very physical league

Fabinho concedes he’s had problems settling in at Liverpool.

The midfielder was left out of the squad for Saturday’s win over Brighton.

“I’m aware it’s a different playing style than Monaco,” he said. “There were two in midfield there whereas here at Liverpool there’s usually three.

“My midfield partners have provided me with guidance and assistance. So have the defence.

“I knew it would change and I feel I’ve adapted well. You seek guidance from the other players around you and that’s worked really well and I feel my performances in pre-season were good.

“Although the systems are slightly different, there are similarities too.

“Monaco had a transition similar to Liverpool’s. I think the two teams can be compared in this way; both them have very fast transition, with every fast players up front.

“I hope to be as important here as I was at Monaco.”

He added: “The Premier League has a lot of intensity, a lot of physicality. I could see that in some friendlies we played against other English teams this summer. But I hope to adapt as soon as possible. I’ll give my all.”
