Liverpool midfielder Fabinho says squad depth was key to their Double winning campaign this season.
The Reds finished the term with the Premier League title and Club World Cup.
Fabinho told the club's website: "Our consistency was crucial. The squad is very good as well. If any player left due to cards or injuries, the substitute always came on and did very well. Everyone was prepared.
"When you win a lot of games, your confidence increases. And our mindset, as I said, was so important because there were a few moments that we were not having our best day – maybe we were not performing better than the opponents – but we managed to find a goal to win games in the final minutes.
"I think all these things are crucial to create a champion-winning team."
