Fabinho on the match against Manchester United: Wee need to win

Perhaps the biggest derby in the world awaits us on Monday. Manchester United and Liverpool will play in the 3rd round of the Premiership. Both teams are in bad form, but United seems to be in much bigger problems. It is difficult to predict what can happen, even though Liverpool is a big favorite.

United fans are impatient, they want the Glazers to leave the helm of the club, and they are also looking for reinforcements, which are necessary. Manchester United confirmed the transfer of Casemiro yesterday. However, the Brazilian will not have the right to perform on Monday.

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho is aware of the importance of this match and wants to give his best. Their motive will of course be victory.
“We know this is the biggest game here in the Premier League and it’s always good to play these games because the fans always want to win so it’s good for the morale as well,” the Brazil midfielder, who could make his 100th Premier League start on Monday, told Liverpoolfc.com.

“We need to win. We will go to Old Trafford with the mentality to win the game so we have some days to work before this game and we will work, and hopefully be in the best shape to play against Man United. “This is a good opportunity for us as well to win three games in a row at Old Trafford.

The last game was really good for us with the 5-0 win, for Mo [Salah] especially, so hopefully this last game will bring good memories for the team [to help us] play another good game at Old Trafford and win”.

Rio Ferdinand on Casemiro's arrival

Casemiro's arrival was also commented on by the ex United player, Rio Ferdinand.

"Is he overpriced? Yes. Are there negatives? Yes there are. Obviously the age, 30 years old. I wouldn’t say that’s a massive negative but I think if you’re talking from a business standpoint there’s gonna be zero resale value.

So, it’s £60m, plus £10m add-ons, and then obviously you bounce on top of that the wages. So, you’re probably looking somewhere near £100m - if you get change out of that, you will be lucky. In a time when we don’t have the finances, it doesn’t seem we can bring big players we have put it all into him.

So, he needs to work. To come from Spain for Casemiro into a team that is absolutely bereft of any confidence, is absolutely struggling in all areas, tactically especially, physically, mentally. I think it’s going to be a huge ask for a 30-year-old to come in, recharge, reboot and go again."
