Liverpool midfielder Fabinho 'excited' by Man Utd double header

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho knows they face an improving Manchester United on Sunday.

United and Liverpool now set to meet in successive weekends — first in the league showdown on Sunday and then in the FA Cup fourth round. And Fabinho admitted he was excited about the two contests.

“Playing against Manchester United is always a big opportunity, it's a derby," Fabinho said.

“I think the fans are excited to have the chance to watch two big games in a short period.

“We are keen to improve our results in the FA Cup in comparison to the previous seasons. So we must be fully focused, it's the only way to beat such a strong rival."
