Fabinho has explained how Liverpool plan to harness the energy of the Anfield crowd to produce a performance full of intensity against Arsenal.

The Reds return to their home ground on Sunday for the first time in a month after four fixtures on the road, with Mikel Arteta's Gunners arriving at L4 in strong form and top of the Premier League.

But Fabinho hopes he and his teammates can replicate the displays produced at Anfield earlier in the season that saw both Manchester City and Manchester United leave empty-handed.

The No.3 told Liverpoolfc.com: "We have some days to recover, so it will be good for us [as] we try to prepare this game.

"This season when we play at Anfield, it's usually where we play our best football. We played good games against big teams this season – we beat City, we beat United at home.

"So yes, we will try to use the crowd and try to play our best football again because if you don't play, we can't beat Arsenal."

Inside Training

Jürgen Klopp assessed his side's midweek showing at Chelsea as a 'little step' in the right direction, having left with a point following a tight and goalless affair.

Fabinho is looking to build on the positives that can be drawn from the game at Stamford Bridge, as the team set their sights on climbing the league table.

"We are still Liverpool, we are still a big team," the Brazilian continued. "The hope and the goal is to reach the top four, so if you want this we have to start winning games. It doesn't matter who is in front of us, we just have to try to win.

"This is the goal. We had a similar situation two seasons ago. We have to keep believing, keep trying. It's not easy – at that moment we were not too close to the top four.

"But it doesn't matter who are the teams in front of us, we have to try to win our games and the confidence will come back. I hope we will get to the top four."
