Liverpool vs Fulham
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 11th November 2018
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Anfield, Liverpool.
Liverpool suffered a 2-0 thrashing in their away Europa League fixture against Red Star. This was a rude shock to fans all over the globe as they expected the Reds to repeat what they did in the first leg encounter. However, back at the EPL, they remain top contenders at third place with 27 points. They are just below Chelsea with goal difference.
They are yet to taste a loss this season and thus continue to display their excellent team form. Perhaps, this is a clear indication that we may see them scoop another 3 points in this matchup.
Shaqiri missed the travel to Serbia and he is likely to feature among the starting XI in this matchup. Moreover, Fabinho may also come back among the Starting XI. Captain Jordan Henderson has been absent for Liverpool’s last four matches through injury and remains a doubt for the home side.
Fulham will be coming into this matchup after a 1-0 thrashing away at on Monday. This was devastating since they were the favorite to win this matchup. This defeat saw them slip to the last place of the league standings. It is evidently true that this is a daunting outing since they are facing a stronger home side.
They have only managed to win only one game in the last 11 played matches. This is poor performance and may only make Fulham get to the relegation zone at the end of the season. Joe Bryan and Kevin McDonald are Fulham’s only injury concerns ahead of their trip to Anfield.
This is a crucial game for the home side to show that they still are capable of destroying their opponents. Well, this is after their away defeat in their Europa League matchup. They will come into this one to win and close the growing gap between them and the league leaders.
Fulham’s performance has been poor and has seen them lose their last 5 EPL games. They need to redeem themselves sooner but may not be lucky to do in this away matchup.
