The Brazilian midfielder hopes that their experience in the past can help them to come out on top in the big moments.
Fabinho is hopeful that Liverpool’s experience of playing in high-pressure games can help them with their push for Champions League qualification. With three fixtures remaining in the 2020-21 campaign, Liverpool are still in the fight to achieve a top-four finish in the Premier League. “This team is used to playing games like this in moments like this, the decisive moments,” he was quoted by Liverpoolfc.com.
“As you say, the margin for error is really small but we have players with experience who have played so many important games and won these games as well. We really face these three finals in the best way possible, try to play our best football and try to fight because these games we can’t just win with our quality, we have to really be there in the challenge. It’s a decisive moment but as players we like these moments, we like to play these type of games. We have to be ready.”
Speaking about the final three matches in the Premier League, he said, “We will prepare in the best way possible, we will try to play our best football. But in finals, sometimes you don’t play your best football, you just get the three points. In this moment, I will take it because that’s what we need.”
On Thursday, Liverpool were at their best, thumping Manchester United 4-2 at Old Trafford to keep their top-four hopes alive. “The win was really important for us. We knew we had to win this game to keep our chances to be in the top four and the way we won the game was really special,” he added.
“It’s never easy to play against Man United and at Old Trafford. We really played good football, we defended together and it was a really good performance.”
Liverpool’s next assignment is a trip to relegated West Brom. Despite their position in the table, Fabinho is not taking the match lightly. “They are already relegated but that doesn’t mean we have an easy game,” he added.
“They have had some good results in the couple of games – just the last game they lost against Arsenal but before this they had some good results. They had some players in a really good moment, like the Brazilian Matheus Pereira. We have to be really focused, concentrate on the game and try to bring the three points to Liverpool.”
