Henderson back as Liverpool trio passed fit for Fulham

The Brain Behind The Brawn The Brain Behind The Brawn

If this weekend's results align themselves in Liverpool's favour, the Reds could head into the November worldwide break as table toppers.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson will be available for the visit of the bottom-of-the table Cottagers.

Liverpool suffered the ignominy of losing to a limited Red Star Belgrade side in the Champions League on Tuesday, but the visit of Fulham looks to be the flawless tonic for Jurgen Klopp's wounded Reds. Liverpool will be smarting after that loss and should show the inevitable reaction on Sunday.

As a team, though, the Reds have scored just 21 in the league - 12 fewer than City.

Aware that champions Manchester City and in-form Chelsea - both also unbeaten in the league - have garnered more praise than Liverpool, Klopp launched a passionate defence of his side on Friday, claiming only winning the title for the first time since 1990 will be enough to silence the critics. "The season so far, points-wise, the Premier League season, is really successful".

Over 2.5 goals is the obvious pick at [1.29] with that mark exceeded in seven of Liverpool's 10 home games against teams outside the big six in 2018 and eight of Fulham's 11 league games having gone over 2.5.

Even Over 3.5 goals is odds-on at [1.7].

"It feels a bit like this season can only be a success in the moment - from how I feel it from all the questions I got asked after games and around games - if we become champions in a year where our competitors are the champions of last year, the champions of two years ago [Chelsea], a refreshed Arsenal and a more experienced Tottenham and Man United".

We can look at what is an embarrassing result by Liverpool's standards, and hope they use it as a much-needed wake-up call, without going over the top with our criticism, and while still remaining positive about the team's chances.

Liverpool v Fulham live stream and TV coverage will be shown exclusively by BT Sport as the two teams go head-to-head in a vital Premier League clash at Anfield.

So, what can we expect from the west London club on Sunday? Mohamed Salah, on the other hand, is averaging a goal contribution every 66 minutes against newly-promoted teams, scoring 4 and assisting 5 goals in 592 minutes.

In his pre-match conference, Jurgen Klopp seemed to be very cautious about Fulham's attacking prowess and it might seem incongruent given Fulham's position in the league.

Liverpool have won their last four Premier League matches against Fulham, though this is their first league meeting since February 2014.

Jordan Henderson, who has missed the last four games with a hamstring injury, is fit again, along with Naby Keita.

Liverpool are looking to bounce back from the humiliating defeat in Serbia and it is likely that Fulham will have to bear the brunt of that reaction.
