Fabinho has admitted that it is taking him time to get used to life at Liverpool FC following his move to the Merseyside outfit from Monaco in the summer transfer window.

The Brazilian midfielder has been adapting to life at his new club after signing for the Reds early in the summer as Jurgen Klopp moved quickly to bring him to Anfield.

However, Fabinho is yet to make his competitive debut for Liverpool FC and he was left out of the matchday squad for the Reds’ 1-0 win over West Ham United.

Fabinho himself has now opened up about his lack of playing time so far this season and says that some of his midfield team-mates at Anfield have been helping him to adapt to life at the Merseyside outfit.

Speaking in an interview quoted by the Liverpool Echo, Fabinho said: “I’m aware it’s a different playing style than Monaco,” he said. “There were two in midfield there whereas here at Liverpool there’s usually three.

“My midfield partners have provided me with guidance and assistance. So have the defence.

“I knew it would change and I feel I’ve adapted well. You seek guidance from the other players around you and that’s worked really well and I feel my performances in pre-season were good.”

Fabinho will be hoping to make his first appearance of the season for Liverpool FC when the Reds take on Leicester City away from home next weekend.

The Merseyside outfit finished in fourth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy last term after having reached the Champions League final before losing to Real Madrid.
