Match Preview

Jurgen Klopp Bayern Munich Liverpool 13032019

Liverpool can jump ahead of Manchester City in the table this week thanks to Pep Guardiola's side playing in the FA Cup against Swansea City instead of their originally scheduled game against Manchester United.

Although the Reds have drawn half of their last 10 games in all competitions, they will be confident of picking up another win as they line up against a side seemingly doomed to relegation as Fulham sit second bottom with just 17 points.

The Craven Cottage outfit recently sacked coach Claudio Ranieri and appointed Scott Parker as caretaker boss with the hope of a resurgence amid their six-game losing streak.

Klopp stressed the importance of getting the three points to bring his side back on top of the league, but insists Fulham will be no pushovers.

“This is a very important game for us," Klopp told reporters at a press conference. "We don’t think about any other situations apart from ours and we just have to take our opportunity.

“Fulham are having a difficult season but you can see their chance recently - it is like a breath of fresh air.

“They lost to Chelsea and Leicester but they were impressive.

“We’ve been over it and we have to make sure we are spot on from the opening second to win the game.”

But the German manager is not focused on his team's league position, given City will have a chance to get back on top soon.

“When City have a game in hand it’s not that important," he said. “We just want to win our game at the weekend.

“City’s game in hand is against United and that’s not easy but we need to think about winning our games only.

“We haven’t struggled psychologically with them ahead of us or us ahead of them it’s just being really focused on the football game.

“Until the end of the season, let’s play football.”
