Fulham vs Liverpool Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 1-2.

With the Premier League title race heating up week by week, Liverpool’s trip to the banks of the Thames will prove to be vital if they want to win the league but also in the relegation battle as Fulham hold faint hopes of survival.

Predictions

This could be quite a one-sided affair if the game goes according to form but with the pressures of a title race manifesting in the minds of Liverpool, you never quite know what will happen.

Fulham come into this game as firm underdogs with a disappointing run of one win in 11 games, but since Scott Parker took charge a few weeks ago, there has been the signs of a slight improvement and a win here would do his future job chances wonders.

Liverpool are aiming to two wins in a row following their win last weekend at home to Burnley but will be wary of a fast start from their opponents, just like what happened in that Burnley game. When the nerves get out of the way, the Reds may look to get Fulham out of the way early on.

Fulham’s recent poor run of form has included losses against Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea, Manchester United, West Ham and Leicester, so they definitely struggle against sides with attacking pace and threat.

If Liverpool do take three points from this game, it’ll be only their second win in London this season with the first coming against Spurs at Wembley.

While Liverpool are favourites for this game, it may not be likely that they hit Fulham for a few goals but rather focusing on getting the job done. A 3-1 scoreline for the Reds wouldn’t be a bad scoreline to go with.

Betting Tips

Liverpool are overwhelming favourites for this clash so an away win carries very little risk while it is also highly likely that both teams will score. Fulham will be intent on giving their home fans a moment to savour and this is among the best online betting odds for this midweek round of action.

These are lengthy odds for an outcome which is more probable than they reflect, given the two teams involved. Home advantage should significantly shift the momentum in this game in favour of Fulham who will show signs of improvement against a Liverpool side who won’t want to leave themselves exposed and the scoreline being level at the break before Jurgen Klopp’s side pull away in the second half is a likely outcome.

Statistics

Head to Head

In the 32 matches prior to this game, Fulham have only beaten Liverpool seven times compared to Liverpool’s 20 wins. The last Fulham win came back in 2012 when a Martin Skrtel own goal gave the London club a 1-0 win at Anfield.

Stats

  • Fulham’s record at home against Liverpool is relatively poor, only winning six games ever at Craven Cottage but it isn’t so bad when you consider those six wins are the majority of their all-time wins against Liverpool.
  • The Reds’ away record this season is where their blips have come with their only loss being on the road against Man City and five draws all coming on their travels.
  • If Fulham have any hope of staying up they will be relying heavily on their home which has given their only four wins of the season. Granted, they have lost seven games and conceded 28 goals in the process, but it’s what they need if they want to stay up.
  • Liverpool may have dropped more points away from Anfield but they’ve actually conceded less goals away from home than at home. Eight goals on their travels, nine at home but the big difference is the amount of goals with Liverpool only scoring 28 away.
