Our tipster is backing the Reds to record a convincing victory when they travel to take on Scott Parker's side at Craven Cottage on Sunday afternoon

Liverpool can return to the top of the Premier League with victory against Fulham on Sunday afternoon.

Jurgen Klopp's men fell four points behind Manchester City last weekend with a draw at Everton, but responded with a fine 4-2 win against Burnley to narrow the gap at the top to a single point.

Manchester City are in FA Cup action this weekend and the Reds can turn up the heat on the men from Manchester with a win in west London.

Latest odds

Liverpool are available at just 1/4 (1.25) with William Hill to take all three points at Craven Cottage.

Scott Parker's side look to be destined for the drop and can be backed at 11/1 (12.0) to secure a vital victory this weekend. William Hill go 5/1 (6.0) that both sides settle for a share of the spoils.

Team news

Alfie Mawson remains sidelined for Fulham, while Andre Schurrle will be assessed. Ryan Babel will be hoping to make his mark against his former employers.

Joe Gomez remains out for the visitors, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain lacks match fitness and Naby Keita faces a race to be fit after missing out in midweek. Klopp, meanwhile, may be tempted to shuffle his pack.

Goals galore

Fulham have lost 10 of their 11 matches, although they have scored in eight of those 11 fixtures - including in three of their last four. William Hill go just 1/2 (1.50) that there are at least three goals or 17/20 (1.85) that both teams are on target.

Fulham's failing, though, has been their defensive frailty throughout the campaign. Sunday's hosts have managed just two clean sheets in all competitions thus far this season.

That weakness could be ruthlessly exploited by a Liverpool side that has scored 68 Premier League goals this term - including an impressive 26 in their last seven league wins.

William Hill offer 17/10 (2.70) that the Reds (-2) beat the handicap mark at Craven Cottage. The same firm go even money (2.0) that Klopp's men score at least three times against the relegation-haunted hosts.

Prediction

Liverpool can lay down a marker with a dominant display and so it is William Hill's 13/8 (2.63) quote for the Reds to win both halves could represent real value for punters. The selection would have landed in each of their last three Premier League victories.
