Liverpool will look to extend their perfect home run in the 2023/2024 Premier League season when they host Fulham at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
A 4-0 thrashing of LASK Linz in the Europa League secured qualification to the last 16 for Liverpool while Fulham suffered a 3-2 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night.
After a 1-1 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last weekend, Liverpool sit in 3rd place on the standings ahead of this crunch clash and Jurgen Klopp’s men will be cautious not to slip up at home against Fulham.
Without a win in their last three matches, the Cottagers will be hoping to turn their winless run-around but face a tough task away from home against a firing Liverpool side.
Fulham sit in 14th place on the standings and are only four places away from the drop zone as they have failed to win any of their last six away matches in all competitions this season.
The hosts have only suffered one defeat in their last five matches against Fulham, with two wins and two draws in the period and will be confident of keeping their title hopes alive at Anfield.
Moreover, the Reds are unbeaten in their last six league matches while Fulham have only two wins in their last six matches.
The big miss for Jurgen Klopp’s men will be Allison Becker who is out with leg muscle problems whereas Fulham will be without the services of Issa Diop who is suffering from a foot injury.
With a terrific run of form at home in the league this season, Liverpool will expect to inflict a fourth successive defeat on Fulham at home to remain in the top four and increase their chances of competing for the title.
Kickoff is scheduled for 14:00 GMT.
