Fabinho feels that Liverpool retaining their Premier League title would be a significant achievement
Brazil international Fabinho is of the opinion that Liverpool winning back to back league titles would be even more special than their maiden title in 2020.
The midfielder has played a key role in helping the Reds finish top of the table for the third consecutive Christmas. His performances at centre back in the absence of Virgil van Dijk have silenced more than a few naysayers who wrote off Liverpool’s title chances a few months ago.
Jurgen Klopp’s side sit three points clear ahead of second-placed Leicester City and are clear favourites to retain their title in the spring.
Retaining the league title is no mean feat with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City being the only team to win back-to-back English top-flight titles in the last decade.
Fabinho believes that if his team could defend their title, it would earn them a place alongside history’s best sides.
“But to fight for the second one would put us further into football history. It would put us up there with teams in the Premier League that have won back-to-back titles. Teams like Manchester City.
“It would put us on the higher level and put us with the best teams in the history of the league.
“Taking into account everything that has happened this year, the difficulties of no fans in the stadiums and the busy run of fixtures and injuries we have had, it all adds to making the second title more special than the first one if we could do it.
“It would show that we have this constant desire at the club to be winners.”
