FULHAM FC vs LIVERPOOL FC Match Preview & Analysis

Fulham have been able to pick themselves up and gain some confidence in recent weeks as they have risen outside of the bottom three, albeit by just a point at this stage.

Two victories in the previous five matches represents decent form for a struggling newly-promoted side, and having been rooted to the bottom of the table for four of the previous 10 games, manager Scott Parker will have seen signs of encouragement. 

Unfortunately from their point of view, matches against Liverpool are not those where they are expected to take anything and could actually find themselves back in the bottom three if sides below them gather points this weekend.

Liverpool themselves are on a strong run of form. 

They haven’t quite exploded out of the blocks as they did last season – they currently have 24 points vs. 31 at this stage last year – but, other than Tottenham, they’ve still been the best side in the league.

They have suffered from plenty of injury and Covid-related absences, but look ready to continue their form here.

Teams Preview

Fulham FC Preview

Form Guide (all comps): WLLWL

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Two wins in five has given them some confidence

     Scoring more goals than the teams below them

Reasons to be fearful:

     Facing Man City last week and now Liverpool is tough

     Could slip back into the bottom three this weekend

When your luck is down, the last thing a club like Fulham needs is to face Manchester City and Liverpool in consecutive weeks.

Sure, everyone must play everyone at some point, but to have some breathing space in between arguably the two strongest teams in Europe would have been preferred.

Nevertheless, Fulham have shown in recent weeks that they can put up more of a fight. Before their defeat to City, they had scored six goals in their previous four matches, including two victories.

Liverpool are likely to have one eye on their titanic midweek clash with Spurs, so may rest one or two players here.

The odds are heavier stacked against Fulham, but if they put up a top performance, they could spring an unlikely surprise

Star Man – Ademola Lookman

Has shown great self-belief to come back from THAT penalty miss earlier in the season to be one of Fulham’s better players over the past couple of weeks.

Liverpool FC Preview

Form Guide (all comps): LDWWD

Reasons to be cheerful

     Thrashed a tough Wolves side 4-0 last weekend, showing their strength

     Won their last six meetings with Fulham

Reasons to be fearful 

     Relatively poor away form of late

     Could have one eye on Spurs midweek

For a team as brilliant as Liverpool, their away form has not quite been up to scratch of late.

They have only won three of their last 11 away fixtures, losing four of them, proving that not all is rosy on their travels away from Anfield currently.

Klopp will seek to put that right, starting in what should be a fairly comfortable win for the Reds given the form of the two sides.

The Liverpool manager may try and change things around with midweek in mind – Tottenham represent the biggest clash of the season so far and he will want his strongest team fresh for that one.

Klopp is likely to be able to welcome back Alisson in goal, though Mo Salah played 90 minutes in midweek, so could be rested here.

Star Man – Sadio Mane

On a relative dry spell without a league goal in six matches. However, he is so important to the way which they defend from the front, and will end his goal drought sooner rather than later.

FULHAM FC vs LIVERPOOL FC Winning Prediction

     Liverpool are clear favourites for victory

     Mane to end his mini goal drought

     Klopp to rest a few players before midweek

Manager Klopp will definitely have one eye on the Spurs game in midweek, but that should not affect the match here against Fulham.

His side are one who will look to get the job done, regardless of who starts and who is rested.

Welcoming Alisson back in goal will be a huge boost, not just in defence but for the whole team.

Liverpool to win 3-0
