From now on, no matter what else these Liverpool players do, they will always be part of the team that brought the Premier League title back to Merseyside for the first time in 30 years.

That’s not a bad time for the tombstone, to be honest.

Brazilian midfielder Fabinho recognizes the privilege of being part of the history-making group of men in this, admittedly strange, season.

“We may not have realised this importance yet but I think we will always be remembered because we were the first Liverpool squad to win the championship since it became the Premier League,” Fabinho said in an interview with the official site.

“This club has a lot of history and has won many trophies as well, but this one is perhaps a little bit more special due to the long period we’ve spent without a league title. “

They can’t all get murals on the sides of buildings, but every player contributed to Liverpool’s success. There wasn’t a dead weight in the whole bunch. Fabinho himself spent several months being one of the best midfielders in the league. He came in a filled a gap in the team, and now when he’s fit, he’s part of Klopp’s strongest XI.

The Brazilian spine of Roberto Firmino, Fabinho, and Alisson has been a revelation, even without Firmino scoring as much as he used to.

Even though we all have former players that we would have loved to see lift the Premier League trophy, it’s hard to imagine a more deserving group than this one.
