The Brazilian is yet to make his Premier League debut.

Fabinho insists he is adapting well to English football despite making only three appearances for Liverpool so far.

The Brazilian midfielder, a summer signing from Monaco, has started only one game – the Carabao Cup defeat by Chelsea – and made two brief Champions League appearances, as a substitute.

Fabinho has been an unused substitute in the last four Premier League games, with Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita and James Milner sharing the three midfield spots between them.

Milner’s hamstring injury could potentially open the door for Fabinho, and he told liverpoolfc.com: “My process to adapt to English football has been very good. Since pre-season I believe I have understood the way Jurgen Klopp plays and the way the team plays.

“My relationship with my team-mates has also been very good, like Roberto Firmino, who has been helping me, and also Alisson.

“I’m playing a little bit more and that’s important to me because it’s important to adapt on the pitch by playing matches. It’s a new experience for me because Klopp has a different style of work from the way I’m used to – but this is something I will learn.

“I have learned a few things from him but it is just the start. He is a coach who demands a lot from his players, not only in matches but also on a daily basis in training.”
