Fabinho backs Liverpool to win title, dreams of luring Mbappe to Anfield
Fabinho moved to Liverpool from French side Monaco in a USD 57 million deal earlier in the close-season and the Brazilian is confident of a memorable first season on Merseyside.
Two of Fabinho's former Monaco colleagues, Benjamin Mendy and Bernardo Silva, play for Premier League champions City.
Liverpool finished 25 points behind City in fourth place last term.
Jurgen Klopp's squad has been bolstered by the recent arrivals of Fabinho, Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson.
"I believe we have a very good team and we will be able to fight for the title," Fabinho was quoted as saying by the British media.
"We will do our best to get the title from them and make everyone happy here."
Fabinho and Mbappe played together at Monaco, helping them to win the Ligue 1 title in 2016-17.
Mbappe then moved to PSG and won the domestic treble last season before lifting the World Cup with France earlier this month.
He scored four times in Russia, winning the best young player award after emerging as the sensation of the tournament.
"Unfortunately I have not had a chance to congratulate him for what he did during this World Cup.
"What France did was fantastic. What Mbappe did in two years of professional football is amazing. He is a phenomenon and needs to be congratulated, and as soon as I have the chance I will."
Asked if he would tell Mbappe to come to Liverpool in the future, he said with a smile: "He has already said for this season he will remain at PSG, but I will try slowly to convince him to come over."
