Betting prediction: Liverpool 1-1 Fulham
Liverpool are in dire straights at the moment, falling further away from the Champions League dog fight and losing five of their last six in the Premier League. Nothing is going right for Jürgen Klopp’s men, and a visit from a Fulham outfit who are in considerably better form in their recent six outings (2-3-1) while they aim to avoid the drop present a tricky opponent as ever. Fulham could earn a point here, after Liverpool have lost five on the spin at Anfield for the first time in the clubs history.
Liverpool vs Fulham: Recommended bets
Full-Time Result: Draw
With their only loss in their last six coming off the back of a controversial handball decision against Tottenham, Fulham look a side who can climb the ladder and avoid the drop off the back of some good form of late, including a draw against West Ham United (0-0) and a win at Everton (2-0). By contrast, Liverpool simply cannot get it right of late, between their injury woes at the back and inability to convert chances to the level we are accustomed to seeing from them. A draw here could be a real possibility.
Correct Score: 1-1
Liverpool have managed just four goals in their recent six fixtures, with half of that total coming against Sheffield United in their 2-0 win against the Blades. Fulham are decent at the back despite their standing in the table, with goals being their bigger concern for the entirety of the 2020-21 campaign. It’s hard to see either side being turned over at Anfield, and you could certainly see Fulham hit a weakened Reds backline on the break to nick something.

Liverpool vs Fulham: Match preview
Liverpool are in an unrecoverable flat spin headed out to sea. Yes, I made a reference to Top Gun and I don’t feel bad for it either, but such is the nature of the Reds’ season spiralling out of control that serves as a reminder of how quickly the landscape can change in the Premier League.
After their loss to 1-0 Chelsea on Thursday, Jürgen Klopp has presided over a period of the season that reads like a criminal rap sheet rather than a manager and a club trying to build off the success they worked so hard to achieve for two seasons prior. Dropping all three points to the Blues ushered in their fifth-straight loss at Anfield this season; the first time in history Liverpool have lost that many on the spin at home. To make matters worse, Klopp has extracted just ten points from a possible thirty-three since the turn of the year. It’s a spell of form that is easily associated to a club that is destined to be relegated rather than a side who, less than twelve months ago, was the envy of the Premier League at the very least.
Confidence always remains the key, however, and Gini Wijnaldum speaking recently mentions the need for his teammates to not get used to the feeling surrounding their performances at the minute. Having faith in your abilities is of the utmost importance at the highest levels of competitive sport, and in a league as difficult at the Premier League, even the best sides can have off years. Coupled with the uncanny injury issues that befell the Liverpool dressing room, it is hardly a surprise that something like this could happen even if no one ever dreamed up the perfect storm scenario.
But there is still hope yet considering the Reds sit just for points adrift of the final Champions League place. Their confidence will be put to the test in rapid successful, however. After Fulham, Liverpool have to content with Wolves, Arsenal, Aston Villa, and Leeds United in the league, all while trying to negotiate RB Leipzig in the Champions League. Will the real Liverpool stand up? Only time will tell.
Scott Parker continues to make a name for himself
An initial look at the table at Fulham for the duration of the 2020-21 Premier League season would make it a hard sell for someone if you told them that they maybe should be higher up the ladder than where they currently reside. But the Cottagers recent performances under Scott Parker is perhaps more indicative of what the squad is actually capable rather than what was seen in the first-half of the campaign.
Safety is not far off at the moment, with Fulham just three points off foundering Newcastle United and wasteful Brighton. But it is hard to sit back and wonder if whether or not Scott Parker’s men have deserved more for a larger period of the campaign. Things did not start brightly and there were few positives to note, but as time progressed, Fulham have certainly been improved but, like some others in the league, have been let down by a combination of poor final product, horrendous officiating, and also the common adaptation period that a promoted side needs to get themselves up to speed with the Premier League as quickly as possible.
Some of the data behind Fulham’s season – much like Brighton’s in a similar vein – suggests that safety could indeed be achieveable if the current course is held for the remainder of the campaign. At the moment, Fulham have underperformed on their xG by 9.86 goals, a number that if comparable with actual events, would see them with an offensive output in mid-table on the goal charts rather than in the bottom of the barrel. Their expected points reads similar, a number that they are underperforming on by a full three wins (9.28), with only Sheffield United and Brighton worse off in that area.
Lately Fulham have been bright and try to be quite positive when in possession, which is an approach that certainly suits some of the quality they do have in their ranks from back to front. They can be confident despite the disappointment surrounding the Spurs loss, as their level of play fully deserved a better result. Before that loss, they were undefeated in five (2-3-0) and coming up against a wounded Liverpool with your Premier League life on the line could yield another point haul again.
Liverpool team news vs Fulham
There is little change for Jürgen Klopp regarding the injury crisis at Liverpool; he remains without Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, and Jordan Henderson.
Ozan Kabak is now listed as a doubt as well, and the same for Nathaniel Phillips, though there is a chance he could feature.
Fulham team news vs Liverpool
Few concerns exist for Scott Parker by comparison when Fulham make the trip to Anfield. Tom Cairney and Marek Rodák are the only unavailable options.
It is unclear if Parker will deploy in a 4-4-2 or a 4-2-3-1 however, though in the sake of continuity in their recent level of play, utilizing a 4-2-3-1 in four of their last six matches may speak to how they could be set up.
