Liverpool are on their worst home run in their club's history as they welcome Scott Parker's Fulham to Anfield. 

Following their 1-0 loss to Chelsea mid-week, the Reds have now lost five straight home games and have only managed to score one goal at Anfield in 2021.  

Fulham on the other hand have only lost one of their last five matches. The Cottagers sit 3 points from safety and a win against Liverpool would see them escape the bottom three. 

  • Team news

After Diogo Jota and Fabinho returned to the matchday squad Liverpool have only had one injury since their midweek clash against Chelsea. Ozan Kabak was ruled out by Jurgen Klopp in his pre-match conference with "a little problem."

Nat Philips also looks likely to return to the squad after he missed the Chelsea game.

Fulham are without any new injuries since their midweek game with Tottenham Hotspur. Marek Rodak and Tom Cairney remain the only two absentees for Parker's side. 

  • Predicted lineups

Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Philips, Davies, Robertson, Fabinho, Thiago, Wijnaldum, Salah, Jota, Mane.

Fulham (4-2-3-1): Areola, Aina, Anderson, Adarabioyo, Robinson, Reed, Lemina, Cavaleiro, Loftus-Cheek, Lookman, Maja.

  • Ones to watch

Diogo Jota will be a huge breath of fresh air for Liverpool if the Portuguese starts on Sunday afternoon.

Liverpool's summer signing looked sharp when coming on against Chelsea and he will be a player Fulham will need to track all game. 

Jota will be hungry to make an impact after being out since December and with the front three heavily out of form, there's no better time for him to come in. 

Liverpool will also need to be on the lookout for Fulham's Ademola Lookman and Ivan Cavaleiro. The pacey wingers caused havoc the last time these sides met at Craven Cottage. Both players got in behind Liverpool's high defensive line and a handful of occasions and will undoubtedly be looking to do the same again on Sunday.

  • Previous meeting

The reverse fixture saw Fulham open up the scoring in the first half with a Bobby Decordova-Reid right-footed strike. 

Mohamed Salah's second half penalty rescued a point for Liverpool but Klopp will be looking to coming away with all three points this time around. 

  • Where to watch on TV

The match will be shown live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League. Coverage starts at 1pm with kick off at 2pm.
