Fulham vs Liverpool: Preview, predictions and lineups

Liverpool travel to Fulham on Sunday afternoon hoping to preserve their Premier League title hopes.

The Reds exited the Europa League on Thursday despite claiming an away win over Atalanta. They briefly threatened a vintage comeback having succumbed to a 3-0 defeat at Anfield the week before, but Liverpool struggled to lay a glove on Gian Piero Gasperini’s side after taking an early lead.

The Merseysiders can now put all their energy into the Premier League, although it’s going to take a huge effort to see them usurp Manchester City at the summit. City climbed to the top of the table last weekend after Liverpool were beaten at home by Crystal Palace.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are more than familiar with Marco Silva’s Fulham, having faced them in the Carabao Cup semi-finals. The Cottagers have played Liverpool close this season, barely losing at Anfield, and they’ve impressed on home soil, toppling both Tottenham and Arsenal in west London.

They’re primed for a mid-table finish, although a late push for a European place isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

Here’s 90min’s preview of Sunday’s Premier League clash at Craven Cottage.

Silva has a full complement of players to select from on Sunday, with his squad also benefitting from a full week’s rest heading into this one.

The Fulham manager is unlikely to make many, if any, changes from the team that won 2-0 away at West Ham last Sunday.

The Cottagers’ XI picks itself.

Fulham predicted lineup vs Liverpool (4-2-3-1): Leno; Castagne, Tosin, Bassey, Robinson; Palhinha, Lukic; Iwobi, Pereira, Willian; Muniz.

Having been in action on Thursday night, we should expect several changes from the side that started in Bergamo.

Diogo Jota, Wataru Endo, and Darwin Nunez are almost certain to come into the side. Harvey Elliott is also in contention for a start, and the young Englishman could replace Mohamed Salah down the right given the Egyptian’s woes since returning from injury.

Klopp is without Joel Matip, Conor Bradley, Thiago Alcantara and Ben Doak through injury.

Liverpool predicted lineup vs Fulham (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Endo, Mac Allister, Elliott; Salah, Jota, Nunez.

Liverpool head into the game off the back of a victory, but the Reds are struggling physically. Like title rivals Arsenal, it appears as if their demanding schedule has caught up to them.

Fulham took advantage of West Ham’s European exploits last weekend, and they should be smelling blood when Klopp’s side come to town. Silva’s Cottagers have played Liverpool close in their previous three meetings this season, although their record against the Reds is dire.

This has the makings of a rather chaotic bout with Fulham, who have the seventh-best home record in the division, earning a result against the fading title hopefuls.

Prediction: Fulham 2-2 Liverpool
