Fabinho admits he 'expected' Brazil team-mate Raphinha to join him at Liverpool in the summer.

Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool were also credited with a strong interest across the transfer window but the ex-Rennes man stayed put at Elland Road and has picked up where he left off this term, netting three times in his opening seven appearances.

Asked about his team-mate ahead of the clash, Liverpool midfielder Fabinho said: 'Raphinha, since he arrived in the Premier League, has been performing and standing out very well at Leeds.

'Even in the summer transfer market, there was some talk that he could go to Liverpool, I even expected that to happen, but he stayed at Leeds.

Whenever a team is going to play against them, they know that Raphinha is the player who can cause the most danger.

Raphinha, who is tied into a contract at Leeds until 2024, insisted he was 'not even thinking about leaving' while speaking with UOL Sport back in May. 'It is difficult to explain how I feel when I hear speculation about giant teams like Liverpool and Manchester United being interested in signing me,' he said.
