Fulham have no fresh injury worries for this fixture, with Kenny Tete and Terence Kongolo both still out with calf and foot problems respectively.

Liverpool are hoping to welcome Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back into the matchday squad, while Alisson, Diogo Jota and Kostas Tsimikas will be assessed.

Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Thiago, James Milner and Xherdan Shaqiri are all unavailable for Jurgen Klopp's side.

Recent Form

The Cottagers have earned six of their seven points in the league this season in their last five games, thanks to wins over West Brom and Leicester. They have started to balance defending with attacking well and look more threatening than before, although they need to cut out silly individual mistakes.

Liverpool have also won just two of their last five in all competitions, although they include Champions League ties where qualification was guaranteed with a point and then already confirmed. The Reds have drawn their last three away games in the Premier League.


Manchester City 2-0 Fulham (5/12)
Leicester 1-2 Fulham (30/11)
Fulham 2-3 Everton (22/11)
West Ham 1-0 Fulham (7/11)
Fulham 2-0 West Brom (2/11)

Liverpool 1-0 Ajax (1/12)
Brighton 1-1 Liverpool (28/11)
Liverpool 0-2 Atalanta (25/11)


In 28 previous Premier League clashes between these two sides there have only ever been four draws, with Liverpool leading the head-to-head by 18 wins to Fulham's six. That trend is likely to continue here.

As much as Fulham have improved as the season has progressed, Liverpool are far too strong for them. Their style of play leaves them quite open defensively and with the Reds the perfect counter-attacking outfit it leans towards a big win for Klopp's men.

Mohamed Salah has carried the attacking load with Sadio Mane scoring just once in his last 12 games, but expect both to be in dangerous form with Liverpool likely to be dominant and using the flanks as their main outlet for goals.

Fulham will put up a good fight early on but Liverpool will eventually break them down and it's all about whether Scott Parker's side crumble or not.

Prediction: Fulham 0-3 Liverpool
