class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The Reds endured another miserable Premier League defeat in midweek and our tipster is backing them to struggle against the Cottagers' strong defence
Liverpool are in desperation mode as they chase a first Premier League home win since December when Fulham visit Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
Things went from worse to even worse on Thursday when Chelsea became the latest team to take all three points from the Reds, handing them a fifth defeat in six games and leaving Jurgen Klopp’s champions in seventh.
Liverpool vs Fulham Latest Odds
Although they have lost five home league games in a row for the first time in club history, Liverpool are just 4/11 (1.36) favourites at bet365 to arrest that run with victory over the Cottagers.
Fulham are making a push for survival with two wins in their last five but are out at 8/1 (9.0) to heap further misery on their opponents.
No team has drawn more games than the 11 that Scott Parker’s men have tallied this season and another stalemate is available at 17/4 (5.25).
Liverpool vs Fulham Team News
Liverpool’s defensive injury crisis worsened on Thursday as Ozan Kabak picked up a knock that will keep him out of this one, alongside Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Jordan Henderson.
Parker will be without Tom Cairney and Marek Rodak for the trip to Anfield.
Liverpool vs Fulham Preview
Ordinarily, a home match against a side in the relegation zone would be the perfect chance for the champions to break any slump, but this is no normal run for Liverpool.
The Reds have scored just six goals in their last 12 games, none of which have come in the first half, and their most recent six fixtures at home have yielded precisely one strike – a penalty in the 4-1 defeat to Manchester City.
Thursday’s display against Chelsea was yet another toothless outing to add to an ever-growing collection as Liverpool offered very little going forward, taking until the 85th minute to even record a shot on target.
Even with the return of Diogo Jota, who looked lively on his comeback after nearly three months out, there is little reason to believe this Liverpool side will do much damage to a Fulham team that has kept five clean sheets in their last nine games and conceded only six goals in that time.
Liverpool vs Fulham Tips and Predictions
Under 2.5 goals is priced at 6/5 (2.20) with bet365 and is definitely worthy of consideration for this Premier League clash, whilst Liverpool to score under 1.5 times is offered at 6/4 (2.50) for another odds-against selection.
