Fabio Carvalho got a taste of the Anfield atmosphere in the pre-season friendly against Strasbourg and then as a substitute in the 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace. The Portugal Under-21 international, who moved with his family to London as a child, has quickly adapted to life at Liverpool since arriving in July.

"When I walked into Anfield for the first time, I had never seen anything like it," he said. I'm not just saying that because, obviously, I'm at Liverpool now. The crowd, the stadium, the fans... just thinking about it now, it's crazy. There's nothing like the Liverpool fans, because they support you through thick and thin. It's the 12th man, it's literally the 12th man, because it keeps us going," said the No.28 ahead of the visit of the Cherries.

Carvalho is grateful for the reception from all his team-mates as he enters a new phase of his career after helping Fulham win the Championship in 2021-22. The 19-year-old believes the team can now build on that spirit as they look to end their winless run in the Premier League.

Carvalho and Elliot

Carvalho also spoke about Harvey Elliott, with whom he has shared a very similar personal and professional journey. The two became close friends when they went to the same school as children, developed their footballing talents in Fulham's academy and made it to the first team at Craven Cottage. Elliott signed for Liverpool in 2019 and Carvalho was delighted at the prospect of them reuniting as part of his own move to the Reds.

"It's unbelievable. We've grown up together, we went to school together, we've been together every day, at school and then in training, doing sessions. From then until now it's surreal, but we're here to do a job. As much as we are at a top club, with top players, we are here to help the team win games and trophies. That's the most important thing.
