Match preview

The attention now reverts to the grueling Premier League as Liverpool travel to Craven Cottage to take on a struggling Fulham side on Sunday, knowing that with Manchester City not featuring over the weekend due to the FA Cup, they can go top of the table once again.

The Reds have outclassed Fulham in each of their previous five league meetings, and after a morale-boosting victory against Bayern Munich in midweek, they will be riding high on confidence ahead of this one.

The odds are further enhanced, as Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 11 Premier League games against promoted sides, with 10 of those being wins.

As far as the hosts are concerned, they have a herculean task on their hands, not only to break the league's tightest defense, but also take care of their own leaky back line.

Given the chaos at West London, it shouldn't be too much of a trouble for Liverpool to get over the line.

On that note, let's bring you the team news and predicted XI of both sides.


Team news

Fulham:

Scott Parker has no fresh injury concerns ahead of this acid test. The former Chelsea and Fulham midfielder will be without the services of Marcus Bettinelli and Alfie Mawson though, who remain long-term casualties.

Liverpool:

The headline absentee for Liverpool will be their skipper Jordan Henderson, who was hauled off in midweek following an ankle injury during the game. Naby Keita is another name who is doubtful for the fixture, as he was left out of the Bayern Munich game owing to a minor strain.

He, however, will undergo a late fitness test. As a consequence of the same, we can expect Adam Lallana and Fabinho to slot into midfield, alongside the ever-so-consistent Georginio Wijnaldum.

The front three are likely to spearhead Liverpool's charge once again, with most of the back line set to remain the same as well.


Probable line-ups

Fulham (4-3-3): Rico; Odoi, Nordtveit, Ream, Bryan; Seri, Chambers, Cairney; Babel, Mitrovic, Sessegnon

Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Lallana, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane
