The Reds kept up their perfect home record this season with a 4-0 thumping of LASK on Thursday and will be hoping to continue that trend this weekend.
Here is a full fitness rundown ahead of the contest:
Liverpool’s XI vs. Fulham
The Reds are suffering something of a mini-crisis in the fitness department as things stand, but the squad still have plenty of depth to cope with the challenges that lie ahead.
Rotation up front in midweek also opens up a range of possibilities up front, but Jota’s injury does leave Klopp now picking three from four instead of five.
We can expect more changes, but this is how a likely XI would look for the Reds:
This is how Liverpool would line up:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Mac Allister, Szoboszlai, Jones; Salah, Nunez, Diaz
Much of Klopp’s team will pick itself this weekend, but there are a number of spots up for grabs should he choose to mix things up against Fulham.
Ryan Gravenberch will also feel he has done enough to earn himself a fourth league start, having also shone after coming off the bench at the Etihad.
Here is a look at how an alternative lineup might shape up:
- Gravenberch to start in midfield instead of Jones
- Matip to partner Van Dijk at centre-back
- Cody Gakpo to keep his place after the brace against LASK
That means the Reds would look something like this:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Mac Allister, Szoboszlai, Gravenberch; Salah, Gakpo, Diaz
Whichever way the manager chooses to go on Sunday, Liverpool should have more than enough quality to take three points from their meeting with 14th-placed Fulham.
Despite the injuries, Klopp has plenty of permutations to pick from as he prepares his side for another vital clash at Anfield, as demonstrated by the variety of options across the park.
Another big afternoon awaits, up the Reds!
