The atmosphere in Liverpool is peaking these days after a big win against Manchester City, gaining a nine-point lead over the Citizens.

It looks like Liverpool’s meteoric rise began with the establishment of the midfielder from Monaco.

While Fabinho took some time to adapt upon his arrival, he is now the key member of the squad.

The Brazilian even scored in a big Manchester City duel.

Now Fabinho opened up on the dressing room chemistry.

As per his own words, they call him Flaco – meaning the skinny one and Dyson – by the brand of hoovers.

“A few people call me this! Between us players, I’m more known as Flaco but they’re cool nicknames,” Fabinho told Liverpool’s official website.

“Before the coach used it [Dyson], another player used it – I think [James] Milner might have said it.

“It’s a cool nickname but the other one that the majority of the players use, Flaco, that was started by Virgil [van Dijk] and everybody started calling me it.”

With chemistry like this, it’s no wonder that the team looks unstoppable on the pitch.
