Fabinho insists Liverpool ‘are in a great place’ ahead of Chelsea clash

Fabinho insists Liverpool are ‘in a good place’ as they prepare to face Chelsea this weekend.

Jurgen Klopp’s side currently lead the Premier League title race by two points from Manchester City, having played a game more, and host top-four chasing Chelsea in a huge clash at Anfield on Sunday.

Brazil international Fabinho, who joined the club in a £40m deal from Monaco last summer, says Liverpool are heading into the clash full of ‘belief’ as they seek a first league title in 29 years.

“We’re in a good place right now with how we are playing. We have a lot of belief,” Fabinho told the Telegraph.

“We are pretty much playing two games in a week and despite the potential fatigue, and what that might mean, I would say it’s a good thing because we are constantly focusing on the next game and we are in a cycle.

“Right now, this is the time of the season when everything is being decided. It’s been a great season and it would be a shame if we didn’t end it with a title after all the effort we have put in.

“We have five games left in the league and hopefully four in the Champions League. The team is in a good spot.”
