Liverpool still in preseason mode despite unbeaten start Jurgen Klopp

He has earned a call up to the Brazil squad and could feature at right back against the USA.

Barcelona and Manchester City have both been linked with a move for the 23-year-old, who as it stands will be able to discuss terms with foreign clubs at the start of 2019.

Liverpool's start to the campaign has seen them live up to their pre-season billing as Manchester City's nearest challengers and Gomez will be hoping to emulate six-time Premier League victor Ferdinand by lifting the title at the end of the season. The pre-season was very good, we had nine friendlies and I played nine, ' Fabinho told Brazilian outlet Globo Esporte.

'It was good to play against English teams to see what the rhythm, the intensity and the physique is like.

"It's been talked a lot about the England squad that went to the World Cup in that they'd all been in lower leagues and sort of come to fruition and gone on to better things".

"Liverpool and City look to be in the best place, though City have lost Kevin de Bruyne for a spell and I think that's cost them two points already".

"Firmino is a good guy and his family have given good support to me and Alisson".

"It's been fine. Having Brazilians in the team helps".

A big part of this trial run is to make sure that the VAR hub at Stockley Park (near Heathrow) can cope with decisions at multiple matches. "I'm fine, training well and prepared". "It has a much higher visibility than Ligue 1 in France", he said.

There will, however, be no contact between the on-field referee and the video assistant team as the trial is meant to show whether the base can handle decisions from many fixtures at one time while matching pitch demands.

"But what's really going to help is that I play and play very often for my club".
