Fabinho sets Liverpool fans a challenge for the rest of the season

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has issued a call to Reds fans to dream him up a chant between now and the end of the season as the team looks to fend off Manchester City and land a first league title in almost 30 years.

The former Monaco man suffered a slow start to life at Anfield, and struggled to pin down a place in the team during the first half of the campaign.

But the Brazilian has enjoyed a renaissance in red as Jurgen Klopp’s side have sustained their title challenge until the season’s final weeks – and now wants the fans to reflect his contribution in the form of a jaunty refrain from the terraces.

“If I deserve a chant? This I leave with the fans,” the Brazilian told Goal Brazil . “I try to do my best on the pitch.

“If the fans are liking what I’ve done, and they want to create a song for me, let’s do it.

“They have enough creativity for this.”

The Reds lead champions Manchester City by two points with four games to play, but the destination of the title remains out of their hands, with Pep Guardiola’s side holding a game in hand over their rivals.

Liverpool continued their question for a domestic and European double on Wednesday as they dispatched Porto 6-1 on aggregate in the Champions League quarter-final – at the very moment as City were crashing out in dramatic fashion against Tottenham .

“We don’t know if we are the strongest, we have a realistic team,” Fabinho said. “Against Porto, for example, we suffered a little at the beginning of the game, but we scored the goals in the opportunities we found.

“We live a good moment, a decisive moment in the season, so we need to do our best.

“We are getting to win the important games. On Sunday we already have one more important match in the Premier League.

“Of course we can enjoy the victories a little, but we are always thinking about the next opponent.”
