Liverpool vs Fulham Prediction & Match Preview


Liverpool will be looking to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Chelsea when they take on Fulham in yet another home fixture. 

The Reds have been struggling in the Premier League ever since Virgil van Dijk suffered a serious injury, with the team sitting in 7th position in the standings ahead of Matchday 27. 

Jurgen Klopp’s troops are desperate to get back on course, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Fulham.

The Cottagers, on the other hand, suffered a 1-0 loss to Tottenham in their last league match, but their display in the local derby was anything but poor. 

Scott Parker’s men are eager to escape the relegation zone, but seeing that they were beaten by Liverpool in six of the previous seven meetings between the two clubs, we are tempted to put our money on the title holders. 

Matip, Van Dijk, Gomez, and Henderson remain on the sidelines for the hosts, while Tom Cairney is injured for the visitors.

Team News:

They would have come away with that point had they not had a goal controversially disallowed for handball - a decision which led the global lawmakers IFAB to change the handball law on Friday.

The news comes too late for Fulham, of course, and whether the point they were denied comes back to haunt them remains to be seen, but they are at least still in that conversation with only three points separating them from both Brighton & Hove Albion and Newcastle United heading into the weekend.

Thursday's defeat to Spurs was their first loss in their last six Premier League games and just their fourth in their last 16 outings - a run which began with a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture against Liverpool at Craven Cottage in December.

Fulham are also enjoying their longest ever top-flight unbeaten away record of seven games and, while six of those have ended up all square, the solitary victory in that time did come on Merseyside against Everton.

The Cottagers have also kept more clean sheets in their last five Premier League away games than they had managed in their previous 45 such matches before that, so against a Liverpool team struggling to score at home they will be confident that they have the foundations to come away with something from Sunday's game.
