Liverpool’s 97-point haul wasn’t enough to win them the league last season, and if they want to come out on, they’ll just have to go out and win a couple more of them.
It looks like Liverpool have to deliver even more than 97-point to challenge for the Premier League title and break the drought that’s now stretched to three decades, according to Fabinho.
“Last season we achieved a club record number of points in the Premier League,” Fabinho told LFC’s official website.
“I think it was the third-highest points total in the history of the competition. This shows how much the level of competition is increasing.
“All our rivals are very strong. It shows that if we want to be champions we have to do something extra. It’s not enough beating the record, sometimes we have to do even more. We’ve focused upon this at the start of the season and started well.
“I hope this run of form continues as it will help with our confidence in the forthcoming games.”
Well if beating last season’s tally is the target then Liverpool have started well, as their 5-point lead at the table after just 5 games is the biggest in Premier League history with Fabinho starting in 4 of these matches.
Liverpool are looking forward to extend the lead when they face Chelsea this weekend and Fabinho is expected to start the game.
