The Premier League champions, whose title has all but escaped them, have lost their last five matches at Anfield, while Fulham enter today’s fixture in mixed form. Jurgen Klopp’s Reds were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea last time out due to Mason Mount’s fine strike, while Fulham also come into this afternoon’s match on the back of a 1-0 loss, beaten by Tottenham in their last outing. Scott Parker’s side sit 18th in the top flight and could go level on points with 17th Brighton with a win here against seventh Liverpool, who are 22 points behind leaders Manchester City ahead of today’s Manchester derby against United.
The home team would leapfrog West Ham and rivals Everton with three points against Fulham, though both of those clubs will then have two games in hand over Liverpool in the race for a Champions League spot – the new target for Klopp’s players given their wretched defence of the title they won with ease last season.
