London, April 20: Liverpool midfielder Fabinho believes his team’s 4-0 victory over Manchester United can give the team more confidence in their pursuit of the quadruple.
Liverpool still have a chance that the Quad have beaten Man City to reach the FA Cup final, with the Carabao Cup long since secured and the Premier League and Champions League still up for grabs.
Liverpool followed up their 5-0 win at Old Trafford earlier in the season with another memorable display against their fierce rivals on Tuesday night.
Luis Diaz’s five-minute strike put them on the road and he was joined on the scoreboard by Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, whose brace took his season total to 30.
Fabinho felt there were multiple positives to take from the team’s work against United. “Now, we only play important games. Of course, the three points are always important, but we want to play good football, we want to play our best football, be at the highest level of intensity, play with quality on the ball because we have a lot of quality in this team,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.
“It was, if not perfect, almost a perfect game. It was also a great game for our fans, so it was important to have a performance like this against a team like Man United. It’s really good for us and for confidence too.” Fabinho said.
“It was a very good performance by everyone. From the beginning of the game we have put the intensity we wanted,” he said.
“We created a lot of opportunities. With the ball we were patient, with a lot of quality. We recovered a lot of balls in the offensive part of the field, this is really important. So I think 4-0 is [justified] for the game we play.”
