Liverpool boss Rodgers wary of Fulham after Old Trafford point

The Cottagers claimed a hard-fought point against Manchester United on Sunday, despite being put under enormous pressure, and the Merseysiders have been urged against complacency
Brendan Rodgers has warned his Liverpool players not to underestimate bottom side Fulham on Wednesday after their Old Trafford heroics.

Despite propping up the rest of the Premier League and suffering FA Cup humiliation against League One Sheffield United last Tuesday, Fulham took the lead at Manchester United on Sunday and then equalised in the 94th minute through Darren Bent to earn a 2-2 draw.

17/1 Liverpool are 17/1 with Betway to beat Fulham 4-0
Liverpool head to Craven Cottage fresh from hammering Arsenal 5-1 at the weekend, having also thumped Fulham 4-0 at Anfield back in November, but Rodgers is wary of Rene Meulensteen's men and expects a tough encounter.

"Every game is critical for us, whether it's the top team or the bottom team," said the Liverpool manager.

"I think you saw (on Sunday) they've got some very good players. They showed great resilience in the game, they took the lead.

"I know some of the players there - brilliant professionals, Steve Sidwell I've worked with, Scott Parker, Damien Duff, all players that are outstanding players with good experience.

"But we understand that it won't be an easy game, because there are no easy games and obviously away from home in the Premier League it is difficult, but we have a belief and a confidence in our play and hopefully we can take that into Wednesday's game and get another good three points."
