    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has no doubts about Fabinho quality


    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has reiterated that he has no doubts about Fabinho's quality.

    Following his move to Liverpool from Monaco over the summer, the midfielder did not make his debut until mid-September - a 89th-minute cameo in the Champions League opener against Paris Saint-Germain.

    Since then, Fabinho has made two further appearances as a substitute and one start, in the EFL Cup loss to Chelsea.

    However, with Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita both out injured, the 25-year-old looks set to feature in Wednesday's Champions League clash with Red Star Belgrade at Anfield.

    Asked it could be a big chance for the Brazil international, Klopp said: "Yes, of course, no doubt about that. It's clear.

    "I didn't make the line-up for [Wednesday], how we will start, but of course it is very important for us that he's now been here for a few months, got used to all the things. [He has had to] adapt to the style of play.

    "If you watch Fabinho playing at Monaco, [he was] full of confidence. You come to a new club and it depends a bit on your personality.

    "He's not the loudest person on the planet, it's not that he's come in and said 'sit down all of you and I'll explain to you how we played at Monaco because we were in Champions League semi-final the year before and became French champions'.

    "He is looking, watching and it always takes a little bit of time. That's how it is. But on the pitch, he is back now and that's good. So, all fine.

    "You only have to watch a few YouTube videos of him, the summaries - I don't know which season of Monaco but it's not too important because he was good in all of them.

    "You see all the qualities. Hard challenger, good in one-on-one situations, offensively, defensively quick, good shooter, fantastic set-pieces, good header, all these things. Strategically good in the right moment.

    "But, in a different system, and a different way we play, just different, and that's what then always needs time to adapt, that's all."
