A Liverpool side brimming with confidence go to bottom club Fulham aiming to close the gap on the Premier League’s leading trio.
The hosts will carry some belief into this game themselves, having scored a dramatic late equaliser in a remarkable game at Manchester United on Sunday. It came at a time when fears of being cast adrift at the bottom were rife after an horrendous run of form, but Rene Meulensteen’s brave team selection and tactics eventually paid off at the home of the floundering champions.
Nobody could have predicted Liverpool taking a 4-0 lead inside 20 minutes against Arsenal on Saturday, but it was further evidence of of the Reds’ attacking prowess, with Philippe Coutinho’s incisive passing and Raheem Sterling’s fine form providing extra threat to that already posed by Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez. The Anfield club are unquestionably title challengers.
Konstantinos Mitroglou is still unable to make his debut for Fulham, who are also without Fernando Amorebieta.
The away side could include Daniel Agger and Glen Johnson in the squad, but Jose Enrique, Lucas Leiva and Mamadou Sakho are still unavailable.
