Manchester City stalwart Fernandinho has refused to bow down to the pressure ahead of Manchester City’s crucial league clash against Liverpool.
The Reds boast a brilliant record with City’s cash-rich team having not won at Anfield in a long long time. However, Fernandinho believes there is a first time for everything and is going to Liverpool confident of winning three points.
“I think the main thing was the mentality of the guys,” said Fernandinho, who was again deployed at centre-back. “In difficult situations like this we have to stick together and we did.
“This is important because we are building a team to be champions and sometimes to be champions you have to play games like this.
“Now it is good because everybody is understanding what we are building.”
“The mentality is always try to win the game,” he added.
“There’s always a first time in life, no? We are searching for this first time to win at Anfield. I am confident we can go there and try to win the game.
“Of course, we will see with Ederson’s situation. We are going to train and the medical staff are going to check him and we are going to see if he will be fit or not for Sunday.”
