Fulham vs Liverpool preview: kick-off, team news, TV channel

Liverpool will be looking to get their season back on track on Sunday when they travel to Craven Cottage to face Fulham in the Premier League.  With the Reds now out of Europe, Jurgen Klopp has just six games left as Liverpool's manager.

After the disappointment of crashing out of the Europa League on Thursday, Jurgen Klopp needs to rally his troops for this weekend's difficult trip to Craven Cottage, to face a Fulham side sitting 12th in the Premier League, but who have already beaten Tottenham, Arsenal, and Manchester United this season.

And with Manchester City playing in the FA Cup Semi-Finals this weekend, Liverpool has the chance to move back to the top of the table, if they can secure a vital three points on Sunday.

Team News

Liverpool:
Liverpool did not pick up any new injuries on Thursday, meaning that Jurgen Klopp has a healthy squad of players to choose from.  Long-term absentees Joel Matip, Ben Doak, and Thiago are still absent, while young right-back Conor Bradley is out for several weeks with an ankle injury.  Returning stars Diogo Jota and Alexander-Arnold got plenty of minutes on Thursday, with Arnold most likely needing rest after his recent long lay-off.

Fulham:
Fulham Manager Marco Silva has a fully fit squad to choose from, which will make Liverpool's task even more difficult on Sunday.

Predicted Liverpool Lineup

Jurgen Klopp will stick with his preferred 4-3-3 formation.

Alisson, Gomez, Van Dijk (C), Konate, Robertson, Endo, Mac Allister, Jones, Diaz, Gakpo, Salah

Liverpool has to win on Sunday, meaning they need to score, so Salah and Diaz will start upfront. After his recent improved performances, I think Klopp will stick with Cody Gakpo through the middle, with Darwin Nunez used from the bench if things aren't going well.  Diogo Jota is also pushing for a start, but I think Klopp will again limit his minutes, to protect him after his recent injury layoff.  In midfield, Wataru Endo will return to protect the back four, with Mac Allister and Jones tasked with controlling the middle of the park.  Alexander-Arnold reminded everyone just what Liverpool have been missing with his performance on Thursday evening, but he may need a rest after Thursday, so I can see Joe Gomez starting at right-back, with Arnold coming on if the game needs rescuing in the second half.

Fulham vs Liverpool Score Prediction

Liverpool need a victory, and although there were positives on Thursday, the team is still low on confidence and struggling for form.  Hopefully, Sunday is the day that all changes, though I think it will be a difficult match against a Fulham team that plays attractive, attacking football.  I think the Reds will win, but it will be close.

Liverpool to win 3- 2

Lifelong fan with a passion for all things Liverpool. First memory of football is watching John Barnes score a dramatic last minute equaliser in the FA Cup when he was 4. Feels lucky to be a part of the 'Klopp' era.
