Team News: Fulham
Nathaniel Chalobah (Knock) and Harry Wilson (Knee Injury) won’t be playing for Fulham boss Marco Silva.
It looks as if The Cottagers will possibly opt for a 4-2-3-1 system for this one with Marek Rodak, Kevin Mbabu, Tosin Adarabioyo, Tim Ream, Antonee Robinson, Harrison Reed, Joao Palhinha, Bobby Reid, Andreas Pereira, Neeskens Kebano and Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Team News: Liverpool
Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has to choose a team with limited availability. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Hamstring Injury) and Caoimhin Kelleher (Unknown Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We’re of the thinking that The Reds could decide to begin the game with a 4-3-3 formation, going with Alisson Becker, T. Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson, Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago Alcantara, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Luis Diaz.
We believe that Fulham are certainly able to find the net against this Liverpool side, however a single goal probably shouldn’t be enough.
We can see a narrow 1-2 win for Liverpool when the referee blows the final whistle. Should be an interesting one.
