Liverpool vs Fulham Preview | Injury Boost For Reds | Expected Line-Ups | Prediction
This is our match preview ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Fulham including team news, expected line-ups and predicted score
Liverpool will look to keep the pressure on at the top of the table with a win when they welcome Fulham to Anfield on Sunday lunchtime.
The Reds slumped to a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday night to leave their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League knockout stages hanging in the balance with two games left to go.
However, Liverpool need to put that result behind them and focus on Premier League matters tomorrow as they look to get back to winning ways following a 1-1 draw at Arsenal last weekend that’s left them sitting two points behind leaders Manchester City.
With Pep Guardiola’s men taking on Manchester United at 4.30pm tomorrow, Liverpool know this is a great opportunity to put the pressure on with three points over a Fulham side that are rock bottom of the table with just five points.
Boss Slavisa Jokanovic insists he’s not worried about losing his job after going down 1-0 to Huddersfield last time out but the pressure will intensify if the Cottagers suffer a heavy defeat at Anfield this weekend.
Liverpool have been handed a boost with the news that Jordan Henderson is back in contention but Klopp may be cautious not to start to the midfielder as he’s only just returned to full training following a hamstring injury.
Naby Keita is pushing for a recall after overcoming his own hamstring complaint last week while Joe Gomez has been declared available for selection despite carrying a minor Achilles issue.
Roberto Firmino is expected to come back in to the side after being benched in midweek while Fabinho is also pushing for a recall in midfield.
Fulham are set to be without Kevin McDonald and Joe Bryan as both players are nursing hamstring injuries but otherwise Jokanovic has a fully-fit squad to choose from.
Liverpool 3-0 Fulham: The Londoners have managed just one win in their last 33 visits to Anfield and they come in to this match is desperate form so it’s difficult to see past a routine home win. Liverpool may not be firing on all cylinders right now but I still think they’ll have way too much firepower for Fulham on home soil.
