Fabinho prepared to fight for Liverpool first team place

Fabinho is relaxed about having to battle for a place in Liverpool's midfield.
The Brazilian, recruited from Monaco, is still waiting to make his competitive debut for his new club, having been an unused substitute for the 4-0 Premier League opening day win over West Ham on Sunday.
Fabinho told Premier League Productions: "When I came to Liverpool I knew this competition would exist in midfield and I think it's really good for the team.
"If anything happens to a player, there's adequate cover. During pre-season I played alongside a variety of different players and we blended really well. So, overall, I think it's a good thing for the team."
"I think my performances (in pre-season) have been good," the 24-year-old added."It's a different playing style than at Monaco; there were two of us in midfield there and here at Liverpool there's three.
"My midfield partners have given me guidance and assistance, as have the defence. I knew (my role) would change and I feel I've adapted well.
"You seek guidance and help from the players around you and that has worked really well up until now. It has been really good since I arrived here.
"The players and the coaching staff have been brilliant. I have been able to fit in really well with the club, the training and games we've played have been good."
