“Ready for this”- Liverpool midfielder finds the positive in congested festive period

Fabinho talks about the flurry of games for Liverpool in the festive season

Three Premier League games within a week. That is what Liverpool are up against once their season restarts on Boxing Day against Aston Villa. The Reds will then play Leicester City on New Year’s Eve and post that, a trip to London to face Thomas Frank’s Brentford on 2nd January.

The number of matches modern-day footballers play is absolutely crazy. But there is also only so much the players can do from their position. Most players involved in the World Cup would have gotten a substantial break before getting back into action.

And more so for Fabinho. The player was definitely not in the best of forms heading into the international break and also did not play much for Brazil in the World Cup. But on a positive note, he was among the best players for the Reds since he came on in the 3-2 loss against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup.

Speaking to LFCTV about the congestion of games during the festive season, here is what the 29-year-old Brazilian said:

“Yes, it’s always good when we have lots of games because everyone will play, everyone needs to be ready.”

“It’s not easy physical-wise but I hope we will be ready for this because it’s a good opportunity to win two or three games in a row and if we do this it will give more confidence to us for the rest of the season.”

Fab and the Reds

Speaking of the fact that it is a good way to generate momentum going deeper into the season, Fabinho spoke about the importance of getting these games out of the way and securing a positive result so that it builds confidence for the rest of the games.

Liverpool’s Bench Strength certainly does not allow the manager to experiment a lot with his playing XI, and given that we do not have the spending power similar to that of our rivals, it is all the more important for us to be precise with where and in which players the club is investing the big bucks in.

And as we speak about Fabinho, the player himself has not been on top form for the Reds this season, and the Reds could do themselves a world of good by signing a player who could compete with him for a place in the Starting XI.
