The Brazilian is hoping to get some game time at his new club in the coming weeks and broke his silence after the 1-0 win against Brighton on Saturday evening.

Fabinho was an unused substitute in Liverpool's 4-0 home win over West Ham United in their league opener, before the 24-year-old was left out of the squad for the 2-0 win at Crystal Palace and Saturday's 1-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion. Liverpool are yet to concede a goal in three matches this season.

"Brighton were strong, organised and have good players going forward, too, so it was never going to be easy", said Liverpool midfielder James Milner.


"During pre-season I played alongside a variety of different players and we blended really well". "But the boys at the back and the goalkeeper, keeping the clean sheets, that's important, that's what's getting us the points". It led to Salah's 23rd-minute strike and Hughton was disappointed with the manner in which they conceded the goal.

Brighton kept a disciplined formation, frustrating Liverpool but creating little until a Pascal Gross header in the 88th minute forced a good save out of Liverpool keeper Alisson Becker.

Gronnemark claims he helped two teams in Denmark add 20 goals to their season's tally between them, so by that logic Liverpool could add around 10.


"I have a lot of respect for it and we are warned".

Of course I think he's happy when we play good, play well and win games, but he is always also busy with "be aware that things can change if you don't give 100 per cent, if you are not concentrated, if you are not playing angry", because every game, in the Premier League especially, is a fight. "If we were more clinical we get something from the game".

Simply put, it's all going well for Liverpool at the moment and there's a real sense that this could be their season.
