What Trueform says for Fulham vs Liverpool
Liverpool will be on a high after beating Bayern Munich in the Champions League and can now return to the top of the Premier League by easing past Fulham.
The Cottagers are almost certainly facing a quick return to the Championship following a run of six straight defeats in this competition.
Five of those losses were by more than a one-goal margin and 3/4 for the Reds to cover such a handicap is our opening Fulham vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Fulham’s Betting Odds
Fulham are 13 points from safety following last Saturday’s 3-1 reversal at Leicester and a great escape looks unlikely with just eight games left to play.
Floyd Ayite’s goal six minutes after the break pulled the Cottagers level at King Power Stadium, but they were then undone by a late double from Jamie Vardy.
“In the second half, we improved a lot, got an equaliser and at that point felt in control of the game, and were a threat,” said caretaker boss Scott Parker.
“But in this division, if you make big mistakes, the ball normally ends up in the back of your net and that’s what happened.”
The Cottagers have created chances going forward all season, but defensive errors have led to them conceding a whopping 68 goals in 30 top-flight fixtures.
Looking at the Fulham vs Liverpool odds, we think 33/20 for an away win and both teams to score makes sense.
Last Fulham line-up: Rico, Odoi, Chambers, Ream, Bryan, Sessegnon, McDonald, Cairney, Nordtveit, Mitrovic, Babel.
Andre Schurrle is training again after a virus but defender Alfie Mawson (knee) remains absent, as does goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli after surgery.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool powered into the last eight of the Champions League with a superb 3-1 success against Bayern Munich in Germany, having previously been held to a goalless draw at Anfield.
Two goals from the red-hot Sadio Mane and a Virgil van Dijk header helped the Reds to make it four English teams in the quarter-finals.
“It’s massive, a big step for us,” said Klopp. “We all feel that’s where this club belongs and we proved it.
“I don’t know about the statistics, but my impression is that there were not too many difficult situations in and around our box.”
That really was a dominant display by Liverpool, who had drawn their last three Premier League away games, and should give them confidence to pick up more big results on the road.
Mane made it 10 goals in as many games, having also bagged a brace versus Burnley last Sunday, and 3/1 for him to break the deadlock here completes our Fulham vs Liverpool betting tips.
Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Van Dijk, Robertson, Matip, Alexander-Arnold, Wijnaldum, Milner, Henderson, Firmino, Mane, Salah.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson will miss out with an ankle injury sustained in the midweek victory over Bayern.
Fellow midfielder Naby Keita will be assessed after missing the trip to Germany with a minor injury.
