Liverpool will be looking to bounce back from their midweek Champions League defeat in Belgrade when they welcome struggling Fulham to Anfield on Sunday. The Reds are still unbeaten in the Premier League this season and sit two points off leaders Manchester City after 11 games, whereas Fulham prop up the rest of the table courtesy of a miserable run of form.
The Premier League this season is living up to its reputation of a closely fought league. Just 5 points separate the top four teams and just two separate Manchester City at the top, with Liverpool and Chelsea behind them. If this weekend’s results align themselves in Liverpool’s favour, City have to play Manchester United at home, Chelsea face a difficult trip to Crystal Palace, and Liverpool host the bottom-of-the-table Fulham on Sunday noontime kick-off.
Fulham go into the game bottom of the Premier League following Monday’s 1-0 defeat at Huddersfield, where the Cottagers managed only one shot on target over the entire 90 minutes.
Jokanovic did not mince his words when previewing the trip to Anfield, their last game ahead of the international break, and laid the blame on the efforts of his players.
In the spirit of showing respect to the opponents, Jurgen Klopp mentioned Fulham’s attacking prowess in the pre-match conference. However, given Liverpool’s defensive record in the league (only 5 goals conceded so far), Fulham have little chance of adding a lot to Liverpool’s goal conceded column.
