Liverpool vs Fulham: Match Preview

Liverpool are coming into the game vs Fulham on the back of four consecutive victories. So they will be confident of grinding out a positive result here. Jurgen Klopp's men picked up a 4-3 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the last outing, and they should be able to find a way past the Fulham defence.

The London club are currently 10th in the league table and they have been in mediocre form recently. Fulham have lost their last two league matches and they have picked up just two wins from the last six outings in the Premier League.

Furthermore, they have a disappointing record against Liverpool. So it remains to be seen whether they can bounce back strongly and pull off an upset at Anfield.

Team News:

Liverpool:

The home side will be without the services of Naby Keita, Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota, Calvin Ramsay, and Stefan Bajcetic.

Ramsey and Bajcetic are ruled out for the remainder of the season. Keita and Firmino have returned to training, but they are not fit enough to feature here.

Fulham:

Marco Silva will be without the services of Layvin Kurzawa, Tim Ream, Andreas Pereira, and Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Mitrovic is suspended and the other three are sidelined with injuries. Fulham are likely to start in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Bernd Leno in goal.

Liverpool vs Fulham: Head to Head:

Liverpool have a good historical record against Fulham and have won 41 out of the 72 matches played between the two teams, as opposed to Fulham's 13 victories.

Liverpool are winless in their last three games against Fulham in the Premier League - their longest such run against the Cottagers since 1967.

Fulham have won only two of their last 29 away games against Liverpool in the Premier League, but have secured these two victories in their last five visits to Anfield.

Predicted Line-ups:

Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Jones; Salah, Gakpo, Diaz

Fulham (4-2-3-1): Leno; Tete, Diop, Adarabioyo, Robinson; Reed, Palhinha; Wilson, Cairney, Solomon; Vinicius
