Predicted Liverpool Starting XI To Take On Fulham

By on November 8, 2013

Liverpool play host to Fulham at Anfield on Saturday afternoon looking to bounce back following last weeks defeat to Arsenal.

Despite going down 2-0 at the Emirates, boss Brendan Rodgers is expected to stick with the majority of the side that lost to the Premier League leaders.

Right-back Glen Johnson was forced to miss that game with an infection in his jaw, but he’s trained all week and should be restored to the starting line-up this weekend with youngster Flanagan dropping out.

There could be another change on the left side with Jose Enrique likely to come back in after returning to training this week. Aly Cissokho was criticised for his display against Arsenal last weekend so will most likely drop back to the bench.

Philippe Coutinho is also expected to make his first start in over two months after making a successful substitute appearance last weekend and he will operate behind Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez.

Here’s the team Brendan Rodgers might pick.

    Without meaning to disrespect Fulham, I fully agree that this should be our lineup because Fulham aren’t much of a threat. Just because we lost to Arsenal doesn’t mean we should abandon the 3-5-2, however against stronger opposition I think we should revert to the 4-2-3-1. In an ideal world, with all our 1st choice players fit, against Fulham we have the opportunity to try this:


    With Johnson and Enrique just coming back from injury this formation would not place so much pressure on them to get forward and back all game long as the 3-5-2 would. Henderson can come on for Stevie to preserve our fantastic captain’s legs, and Agger, who may not be completely match-fit can be replaced by Sakho for the last 30mins. This lineup gives us a solid defence and plenty of men in midfield so that we don’t get overrun like we did against Arsenal. With Suarez, Moses, Coutinho and Sturridge all interchanging the Fulham defence would be chasing shadows all game long and would give us plenty of opportunity to open them up.
