Liverpool hope to bounce back from their slow start to the new season when meeting the Premier League leaders.

Fabinho has backed Liverpool to gain a major confidence boost by beating Arsenal this weekend.

Unlike the Gunners, Liverpool have struggled with consistency this season. The Reds have slipped 11 points behind Mikel Arteta’s men, who lead the Premier League table.

 “[The] Emirates is a nice place to play and Arsenal, of course, are in a really good moment right now, playing really well, winning their games, top of the league,” the Brazil international told Liverpool’s official website.

“It’s a good opportunity for us as well to show that we are Liverpool, we are still one of the best teams in this league. So, it’s a good opportunity for us to get the three points and to close the gap on these teams as well.

“I always say that this is the moment every player likes; playing every three or four days. Different competitions to play – Champions League, Premier League – so a lot of big games to play.”

Liverpool must play against Manchester City after their game against Arsenal. 

The schedule might seem unlucky due to the two sides’ perfect form, but Fabinho believes it’s an opportunity for Liverpool to bounce back and fight for their place in the league.

He added: “In the league, our next two games are against maybe the better two teams at the moment, Arsenal and Man City. So, what an opportunity for us to play against these teams, to play these kind of games to get our confidence back.

“This moment is not good, and it’s not easy when we know you can do better, you can play better, you can win more and more games. We just have to keep focused, keep concentrating, try our best to turn this situation.”
