Fulham vs Liverpool

, KO: 16:30 Apr 21, 2024, Craven Cottage
Liverpool

LIVERPOOL were in the box seat for the Premier League title a couple of weeks ago but head into this clash with Fulham at Craven Cottage knowing one more slip-up could prove fatal to their dreams of glory.

Jurgen Klopp's farewell season is threatening to turn sour after a traumatic fortnight that has seen them ship five points in the title race and crash out of the Europa League to Atalanta.

A combination of dodgy defending and bad finishing has hurt the Reds at the worst possible time, with Klopp's side wasting enough chances to win two games in last weekend's Anfield loss to Crystal Palace.

Our man Mark still cashed in with a corner bet that day and tipped Atalanta to pile on the misery in the Europa League on Thursday night. But the Italian side were happy to defend their first-leg lead and despite Liverpool scoring early on they couldn't do any further damage and lost 3-1 on aggregate.

Now it's back to domestic matters and Klopp will be looking to respond with a win against Fulham as he bids to keep the pressure on leaders Manchester City and Arsenal.

Six successive victories to close out the Premier League campaign still might be enough to land the title but Fulham have the firepower to ask questions of Klopp's leaky defence.

Marco Silva's side beat West Ham 2-0 in London last week and that came after the Hammers had a Europa League clash on the Thursday night. So the Cottagers will be looking to repeat the trick when the Reds come calling.

Fulham have beaten the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Brighton pretty convincingly at home this season and can play with the handbrake off from the safety of mid table.

How the bookies view it

Despite their recent blip, Liverpool remain heavy favourites for this one at a best 8/15 with QuinnBet. Fulham look a little overpriced at 5/1 with Betfred while the draw pays 19/5 at Unibet.

Recent head to head

These sides faced off in the League Cup semi-final this season and it was Liverpool who edged it, winning 2-1 at Anfield before drawing 1-1 at Craven Cottage. The Reds also just come out on top in a 4-3 Premier League thriller at Anfield, with Trent Alexander-Arnold scoring a late winner.

The last three meetings at Craven Cottage have all ended level and you have to go back to 2011 for Fulham's last home win over Liverpool.

Players to watch

Everton old boy Alex Iwobi would love to blow a hole in Liverpool's title dream and is a big threat for Fulham from midfield. Paddy Power price the Nigerian at a tempting 3/1 to either score or assist.

Mo Salah has looked out of sorts in the last few weeks but still remains Liverpool's biggest goal threat. The Egyptian winger is evens at Paddy Power for anytime scorer while Bet365 price him at 11/8 to have over 3,5 shots.

Anything else catch the eye?

Both teams to score has landed in all three meetings this season and we should see plenty of goals again. BTTS is just 11/20 at BetMGM and combining it with over 2.5 strikes only boosts the odds to 3/4 at Coral. To get to odds-against territory you need to go to over 3.5 goals at 21/20 with 888Sport.

Liverpool had 16 attempts at goal against Crystal Palace with six of them on target. They could pepper the goal again and Fulham are also a threat so over 11.5 match shots on target could be worth a punt at 27/20 with Unibet.

Corners are always a good option with Klopp's side going at full throttle and I like over 7/5 Liverpool corners at 29.20 with Unibet. Over 11.5 match corners also pays 6/4 with SkySports.

This match between Fulham and Liverpool will be played on Apr 21, 2024 and kick off at 16:30. Check below for our tipsters best Fulham vs Liverpool prediction. You may also visit our dedicated betting previews section for the most up to date previews.
