Fulham vs Liverpool

, KO: 14:15 Mar 17, 2019, Craven Cottage

WITH Manchester City on FA Cup duty, Liverpool will be desperate to strike a small psychological blow in the title race by returning to the top of the Premier League table.

Having claimed a memorable 3-1 win at Bayern Munich in midweek, it's hard to imagine Jurgen Klopp's side slipping up at Craven Cottage.

Although caretaker boss Scott Parker has overseen an improvement in performances since replacing Claudio Ranieri at Fulham, results remain dismal.

It's now six defeats in a row for the Cottagers and the bookies don't give them a prayer against the Reds, making them 12/1 rank outsiders, with Liverpool 5/18 favourites.

Nerves could see a few slips from Klopp's side in the run-in, even though Steven Gerrard no longer plays for them, but I can't see it happening here.

I fancied Liverpool to get past Bayern on Wednesday, although I thought it would be on away goals after a scoring draw. Instead they strolled to a deserved victory, raising hopes of a second successive Champions League Final.

After their midweek exertions at the Allianz Arena, Klopp should make a few changes and that will be enough to make sure Liverpool have enough energy to swarm all over Fulham.

Adam Lallana, who was hugely impressive in last week's win over Burnley, should come back into midfield and looks good value at 3/1 with Paddy Power for anytime scorer.

I've been surprised how marginalised Xherdan Shaqiri has been in recent weeks, given his ability to provide goals in tight games. The Swiss hasn't started since the 1-1 draw with Leicester at the end of January but this could be the game where Klopp throws him back in. He's 13/8 with Betfred to score at any time and that looks a decent option.

After five successive clean sheets, Liverpool's defence has been a bit more vulnerable in the last week, shipping two goals to Burnley then another to Bayern.

Fulham scored in their recent home defeat to Chelsea and could do so again here against the Reds. So try backing a Liverpool win with both teams to score at 15/8 with 888 Sport.

It may take Klopp's side a while to slip into top gear after the Bayern game so another good option is draw half-time/Liverpool full-time which is 18/5 with Marathonbet.

Fulham will rely on Aleksandar Mitrovic for goals and he's a tempting 3/1 to net here. The big Serb likes to put himself about and I fancy him to pick up a booking at  7/2 with Unibet.
