Liverpool Vs Fulham Preview

Liverpool still heading in the right direction - Klopp

Jurgen Klopp reveals he staged a team meeting with his players after Champions League defeat

"I know it's not easy playing against a really fast counter-attack like their three front players, but we must look for our chance, be fearless, and show the mentality at the end, for fighting, for running with them, for challenging with them, and for a chance to win".

'It's frustrating because for a large part, the first part, really Liverpool were in control and then there was a few mistakes here for the goal. I'm not exactly sure which it was - let me say Roma at home until they started scoring their goals.

"We have a wonderful perspective, it's all good", he said.

"But it doesn't really feel like that because there are two reasons in comparison with past year: free-flowing football in a few games and Man City and maybe Chelsea and a few others play a very good season as well".

Fulham head to Anfield on Sunday having slid to the foot of the table after a miserable run of five consecutive defeats.

"You have to remember our competitors are champions of last year and two years ago, and a refreshed Arsenal and Tottenham and Manchester United are still there - but we go for everything".

The West-Londoners, who welcomed 12 new faces over the summer, have conceded more goals than any other team in the league this season, and 16 in their last five matches alone.

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

Leonard could decline his 2019-20 player option and become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2019. Leonard missed the game with a sore left foot which no doubt had the Lakers breathing a sigh of relief.

'I think if anyone is to blame it's Van Dijk. But the other teams don't sleep.

"We need to be more motivated and be ready for a fight, be ready for battle, don't give up and in our plans there exists a way to win the points".

"If we are confused, scared and play like kids, it's not easy".

Hopefully, Fulham can try to revert back towards old ways on Sunday.

Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic is a booking away from a one-game ban.

The Cottagers have conceded 29 goals during that time - to share an unwanted Premier League record with Southampton from 2012-13 - and are now on a run of five straight defeats. 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.

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).

"The season so far-wise, points-wise in the Premier League, has been really successful", Klopp told reporters. In the Premier League, that class has shone through four assists for Fulham.
