Liverpool vs Fulham : Liverpool takes on Fulham on Sunday looking to move back to the top of the Premier League table. The Reds, who have two wins and two draws in their last four Premier League games, entered the weekend one point behind Manchester City in the title race. City is not playing in Premier League action this weekend as the club’s derby with Manchester United was postponed due to the FA Cup.

Liverpool: Beating Bayern in Germany to reach the final eight in the Champions League was huge, and maybe the result can help Liverpool put some Premier League hiccups in the rear-view mirror. The Reds have scoreless draws against Everton and Manchester United in the last three weeks, but they’ve netted 12 goals in their last three wins against Burnley, Watford and Bournemouth. Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and the Liverpool attack should be able to keep the production up against Fulham.
Liverpool return to domestic action as they continue their Premier League title assault with a trip to relegation-threatened Fulham this afternoon.
Fulham: Fulham is in 19th place with just 17 points this season, and it would take a lot over the next two months for the club to avoid relegation. The team has lost six consecutive Premier League games with its last win Jan. 29 against Brighton.
Jurgen Klopp’s side will be on a high after dispatching Bayern Munich in a thrilling 3-1 Champions League clash in midweek, though Scott Parker’s Fulham – 12 points adrift of safety with eight games left – have little to lose if they decide to give Liverpool a game.
Liverpool vs. Fulham prediction
Liverpool won 2-0 when these teams met at Anfield in November. Expect a similar result Sunday.
Fulham showed a noticeable improvement in Parker’s first game in charge as they narrowly lost to Chelsea, but – as so often this season – they have too many problems at both ends of the pitch.
Liverpool will be wary of a potential European hangover following their superb win in Munich, but they are tight enough in defence and dangerous enough in attack to put this Fulham side to the sword without too much drama.
