Fulham - Liverpool Betting Preview: Back the Reds to burst out of the blocks

Brendan Rodgers's men travel to London looking to carry on their fine form against a struggling Cottagers side, with Hugh Wilson backing the Reds at half-time and full-time
Fulham face Liverpool in the league on Wednesday night full of confidence after coming away from Old Trafford at the weekend with a draw.

Rene Meulensteen's side soaked up huge amounts of pressure against Manchester United but it looked like their efforts would yield no points until a late Darren Bent goal gave them a valuable share of the spoils.

The Reds, though, will also be on a high after a stunning performance against Arsenal which has seen them cement a place in the top four.

Liverpool have enjoyed playing against Fulham in recent years, winning the last three fixtures between the two, scoring 11 and conceding only once.

Brendan Rodgers's side are unbeaten in their last eight matches, winning six of those games scoring goals for fun. With Liverpool netting five against Arsenal on Saturday and scoring four against Everton two games before that, it is of little surprise to see William Hill price them at 4/9 (1.44) to beat Fulham again.

Despite the positive result against United, the Cottagers still have not won in their last six matches and sit at the bottom of the Premier League. Time is running out for Meulensteen, who, despite taking the managers job only a few months ago, is under a huge amount of pressure. William Hill price them at 6/1 (7.00) to win. The same firm price the draw at 10/3 (4.33).

With Liverpool pushing for the Champions League places, they will see this match as a must-win game. The outright price of the Reds winning is too short to touch but backing them to be winning at half-time and full-time at 10/11 (1.91) looks like a great option.

In Liverpool's last eight wins in the Premier League, this bet would have paid out seven times. With Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez in sensational form at the moment, expect them to continue their fine form against Fulham.
