Liverpool will be determined to bounce back from their humiliating Champions League defeat against Red Star when they welcome Fulham to Anfield for Sunday’s Premier League clash.
The Reds were defeated 2-0 in Belgrade, meaning they have won just two of their last nine fixtures in all competitions.
However, having gone 21 home matches without defeat in the league, they are 1/10 (1.10) favourites with William Hill to bounce back with a victory here.
Slavisa Jokanovic’s men have lost each of their last six consecutive fixtures and are priced at 22/1 (23.00) to pull off a shock win in this one.
None of the last eight most recent encounters between this pair have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 10/1 (11.00) on them cancelling each other out on this occasion.
Naby Keita could make his comeback from injury after returning to the bench in Tuesday’s clash, while Xherdan Shaqiri is also available after being omitted from the travelling squad due to political reasons.
Joe Bryan is the only injury absentee for the guests, having been ruled out due to an ongoing hamstring issue.
Having started the season leaking goals but fairly productive in attack, the Cottagers have seen even their cutting edge desert them in recent weeks.
With just three goals to their name in six fixtures, it is hard to see them having much joy against a defence that has conceded only once in 10 Premier League home games.
Similarly, Jurgen Klopp’s men are struggling to rediscover their best attacking form of late, hitting the net more than once in just one of the last five league matches.
All in all, the best value appears to be found in the 5/4 (2.25) odds available on under 3.5 goals being scored for Fulham’s sixth league game in eight and a 10th in 11 for Liverpool.
