Form Guide Fulham Fulham have been in dreadful form all season and have managed to accumulate just 17 points from 30 games so far. As such, the club now finds itself deep in the relegation zone in 19th place and, if they are to have any hope of avoiding the drop, Fulham will need to win the majority of their remaining games. In their previous 5 games, Fulham lost all 5. Statistically, it's no wonder that Fulham have been struggling all season as they have been massively under performing in both attack and defence. They've scored 28 times in 30 games, an average of 0.93 goals per game. To make things worse, they have also conceded 68 times, a whopping 2.27 goals per game on average. Liverpool Liverpool have gone through a bit of a rough patch of form in the Premier League with a few draws seeing them fall to 2nd in the table. The Reds got back to winning ways in the previous round of fixtures and are just 1 point behind Premier League leaders Manchester City. In their previous 5 Premier League games, Liverpool won 3 and drew 2. Statistically, Liverpool are one of the strongest teams in world football this season. They've scored 68 times in the Premier League, an average of 2.19 goals per game. More impressively, however, is their defensive record as the Reds have conceded just 17 times, an average of 0.55 goals per game. Head to Head In the previous 10 meetings between the clubs, Fulham won 2, Liverpool won 7, and there was 1 draw. Notably, Liverpool have come out of this game as winners in the last 6 matches. Pre Match Analysis Fulham Fulham look completely defeated at the moment and it's difficult to see how they are going to get a positive result in this fixture. With just 17 points, it would take a miracle for the club to avoid relegation with just 8 games remaining, but that is something that the players will have to deal with. Bringing in Scott Parker as caretaker manager hasn't helped things as he has lost both of the games he's been in the dugout for since his appointment. Fulham are at a crossroads at this point in time and need to decide whether they are serious about trying to get out of this mess or simply resigned to their relegation fate. Strategically, Fulham only have one real option here and that is to get at Liverpool as much as possible and genuinely try to win the game. Sitting back and defending for 90 minutes will likely lead to a loss but there is also the fact that 1 point from this game isn't enough to be considered a good result. If Fulham are going to have any chance of success then they will need to try to gain some form of control over the midfield battle. Being aggressive in these areas may get the crowd on side and increase player confidence within the team. However, if Liverpool are able to dominate the overall statistics throughout this game then it could be a long afternoon for Fulham. Liverpool With Manchester City not playing in the Premier League this weekend, this game provides Liverpool with an opportunity to return to the top of the table throughout the upcoming international break. On paper, this is a game that Liverpool will be expected to win but, in terms of the Premier League title challenge, this is a game that Liverpool simply must win. Confidence will be high within the Liverpool squad following their victory away from home against Bayern Munich but complacency is something that the Reds cannot allow to form within their performance on Sunday afternoon. Strategically, Liverpool simply need to play their usual aggressive possession game here. Fulham have been conceding an incredible amount of goals throughout the season and the attacking trio of Mane, Firmino, and Salah certainly have enough in them to punish this team. Klopp needs to advise his team to remain patient if they don't score in the early exchanges as opportunities will arise throughout the 90 minutes. With Henderson unavailable for selection, Milner or Keita would be expected to start in midfield alongside Fabinho and Wijnaldum. This could also be a good opportunity to give Shaiqiri a few minutes to keep him sharp following a lack of appearances over the last couple of months. PredictionAlthough every game is a high pressure game as far as Liverpool are concerned over the next couple of months, this should be a routine victory for the Reds if they simply turn up and play to a decent standard. Fulham have been so woeful over the season and have almost no chance of saving themselves that it may be difficult for the players to be motivated to put up much of a fight here. Prediction: Liverpool win Score Prediction: Fulham 0 - 4 Liverpool Betting Tips I have been adventurous with the Over 3.5 Goals market here but Fulham have a terrible defensive record while Liverpool have a great attacking record.
