Liverpool must not have any room for complacency if they are to deliver a second successive league title to Anfield, suggests Fabinho.
With Jurgen Klopp at the helm, Liverpool were able to bring home the Premier League trophy – a trophy that had kept avoiding Anfield for 30 long seasons prior to 2019/20.
The Reds, having reinforced their squad over the summer, then entered the 2020/21 campaign as favorites to retain their crown.
Although they are going strong, level on points with leaders Everton, their powers have severely diminished – or so it seems early in the season.
Klopp’s side have already dropped points on two occasions thus far, with one being the embarrassing 7-2 loss to Aston Villa while the other the Merseyside derby stalemate.
As a matter of fact, their standards have dropped ever since they lifted the title post-lockdown last season.
Fabinho has now urged his teammates to maintain the save level of hunger and determination that helped them win the league, Champions League, European Super Cup, and Club World Cup.
“[Jurgen Klopp] said that what we’ve achieved at the club up until now is very important, but given the squad we’ve got, we can do a lot more,” Fabinho told the club’s official matchday program.
“Our players and the leaders in the group are always pushing each other, helping each other out, not allowing anyone to relax. That’s important at this moment in time.
“Even though we’re a team that has been hugely successful, we need to be pushing each other on to win more things.”
