Liverpool midfield ace snubs Manchester United in Premier League predictions

Liverpool’s Fabinho proved he’s a true Red by dismissing Manchester United’s summer transfer business.

The Brazilian had been discussing the transfer business from their Premier League rivals such as Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham and Arsenal.

But Fabinho, 28, omitted United from his praise.

Fabinho discusses rivals’ transfer business:

The former Monaco midfielder revealed his thoughts on his rivals’ business this summer – when speaking to The Athletic.

He said: “City are obviously the favourites and it’s tough to fight against them to win the Prem.

“You can play one of your best seasons like we did, score more than 90 points and it still doesn’t mean you win the title.

“We know that if we want to win it we’ll need to be almost perfect. City are always buying new players, always reinforcing their team.

“This summer was no different with [Erling] Haaland joining them. I think it will be a really good battle with them, but not just them.

“Tottenham have bought some good players, Arsenal too with Gabriel Jesus going there, Chelsea too. Everyone has been reinforcing because everyone wants to beat City. That means the Premier League will be at a really good level this season.”

Premier League rivals sign key players

Liverpool have signed the likes of Darwin Nunez, Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsey but they aren’t the only club that has been busy.

United have brought in Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia and Christian Eriksen to date – and still could strengthen further.

Chelsea have secured the signings of Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly ahead of the new season and still could sign one of either Jules Kounde or Prisnel Kimpembe too.

Whereas direct rivals Manchester City brought in famed forward Erling Haaland, Kalvin Phillips and South America’s hottest talent Julian Alvarez.

Spurs have been the busiest though, signing six players including Richarlison, Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma and Clement Lenglet.

Arsenal also have brought in stars such as Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Fabio Viera showing that they mean business this year.
