Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has welcomed the intense competition for starting spots at the Premier League club, with the Brazil international saying the battle for places would boost the team's performances.

The 24-year-old, who joined from AS Monaco before the start of the season, is yet to make his competitive debut for Liverpool after being benched for last Sunday's league opening 4-0 thrashing of West Ham United.

"When I came to Liverpool I knew this competition would exist in midfield and I think it's really good for the team," Fabinho told Premier League Productions.

"If anything happens to a player, there's adequate cover. During pre-season I played alongside a variety of different players and we blended really well. So, overall, I think it's a good thing for the team."

Fabinho faces competition from captain Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Adam Lallana, Naby Keita and Georginio Wijnaldum to seal a regular starting role.

The Brazilian maintained the rivalry is healthy and has credited his midfield counterparts for helping him adapt to Liverpool's playing style.

"My midfield partners have given me guidance and assistance, as have the defence. I knew (my role) would change and I feel I've adapted well," Fabinho added.

"You seek guidance and help from the players around you and that has worked really well up until now."
