Liverpool midfielder Fabinho: Monaco title experience helping me this season

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho feels his past title winning experience has helped him this season.

Fabinho is in line to add a Premier League winner's medal to the one he earned with AS Monaco.

He told the club's website: "Yes, I believe it does. The experience of winning the French championship was important. It's a different championship from the English one, but it's an important title, especially as that season we weren't the favourites but we managed to win it.

"I think last season helped me a lot, too, considering the campaign we had; I got to grips with the reality of the Premier League and appreciated how difficult it is. You have to play at a very high level for the whole season if you hope to win the league.

"So, yes, I think it helped me a lot; it helped me improve and know what's required to win the league."
