Africa: Fulham vs Liverpool: Line-up, EPL prediction and result

Latest EPL standings as well as fixtures and results are found below the predictions.

Liverpool continue their quest to record back-to-back English Premier League titles this Sunday when they travel south to face struggling Fulham at Craven Cottage.

The Reds come into the weekend level on points with Tottenham at the top of the EPL table, only behind Spurs on goal difference.

Jurgen Klopp’s men turned on the style last time out, battering bewildered Wolves 4-0 at Anfield last Sunday, as the charismatic boss was able to pump his fists at fans on the Kop for the first time in an age with the easing of lockdown restrictions in England.

Without home comforts this weekend, the reigning champions are also missing a host of injured players.

Keeper Alisson continues his lay-off, joining the likes of Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and Thiago on the sidelines.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Xherdan Shaqiri and James Milner will also miss out, although the return of Trent Alexander-Arnold represents some relief on the horizon for the medical team on Merseyside.

Fulham are 17th in the standings, with last weekend’s 2-0 defeat at Manchester City making it three defeats in four for Scott Parker’s side.

They will be without Terence Kongolo and Kenny Tete for the latest crunch clash in their battle to beat the drop back to the Championship.
