Fulham Boss Channels Inner-Steven Gerrard With Decimation Of Players

Klopp knows his Reds have been very impressive since the start of the season.

Liverpool are looking to bounce back from the humiliating defeat in Serbia and it is likely that Fulham will have to bear the brunt of that reaction.

Midfielders Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita are both in line for a return to action following their respective hamstring injuries.

With the weight of 19 Premier League teams upon him, Fulham's Slavisa Jokanovic channeled his inner-Steven Gerrard for this weekend's pre-match press conference. "We have to build on our situation, we have to get better, to get more confidence out of the season".

However, Van Dijk came under scrutiny following Liverpool's shock defeat to Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League, with the Dutchman struggling in Joe Gomez's absence.

We haven't really changed our game-plan for the big teams so far this season, so that would suggest not.

The beleaguered Slaviša Jokanović remains odds on favourite to be removed, from Fulham, at around 8/11, after the Cottagers picked up a single win from their opening 12 games and remain rooted to the bottom of the table.

The Reds have only dropped points in stalemates with Arsenal, Chelsea FC and Manchester City, which is a respectable enough feat for a team with title ambitions this season.

A middle ground needs to be found between this season and last, but it's easy to forget that it wasn't until the Christmas period that Liverpool really found their feet last season, and the headlines started being made. The performance against Red Star Belgrade may change this. But the other teams don't sleep.

Liverpool have won their last four Premier League games against Fulham, this being the first meeting between the two sides since February 2014. We need to be more motivated and be ready for a fight, be ready for battle.

In their three Premier League games immediately following a Champions League fixture this season, Liverpool have scored exactly the same number of goals as they did in their European match (3 vs PSG/Southampton, 0 vs Napoli/Man City, 4 vs Red Star/Cardiff). "If we are confused, scared and play like kids, it is not easy for any team".

No side has ever conceded more goals at this stage of a Premier League season than Fulham and they are the only side in the division yet to keep a clean sheet.

In all competitions, Fulham have managed just one win in their 33 away visits to Liverpool (D9 L23), scoring just four times in their last 17 games at Anfield. We use the good things and work on the less good things.
