The versatile Brazilian star slotted in at the back following Virgil van Dijk's injury against Everton and bossed the game.

And the 26-year-old spoke brilliantly after bagging the 'Man of the Match' award.

He touched on a number of topics ranging from his reaction to Van Dijk's absence, to adapting to defence and his impressive English.

"Ajax have a lot of quality and always try to play good football," he said.

"We knew we'd have to stay concentrated because they have a lot of good offensive players. It was good to keep the clean sheet first and to win the game 1-0."

On the Dutchman, who's set to miss the season, he said: "It was a shock. I think he's the best defender in the world right now and most of all he's a leader of the team.

"In the dressing room, he [creates] a good atmosphere and of course we miss this but we have to keep going, try our best, and win the games for him as well."

Fabinho continued: "Tactically, I have to always be ready for long balls, and try and organise the team.

"It's not easy but I have to do a bit of what Virgil always does - talk to the team, try to be a leader. Of course I'm not really [a leader] but I'll do my best! It was very important for me and the team to keep the clean sheet today and for the team's confidence, it's very good."

On his English and communication skills, he added: "I try to do my best. The manager said to me I have to talk more to the team and organise them. Sometimes little details like 'second ball', 'be ready' 'press good' - I try to be in this role and do my best."

Fabinho will likely continue his role in defence when Liverpool resume their Premier League campaign against Sheffield United on Saturday.
