    Fulham vs. Liverpool: An Alternative Preview

    Probable Lineups

    fulham liverpoolFulham (4-3-3): Stekelenburg, Riether, Hangeland, Burn, Richardson, Kvist, Parker, Sidwell, Holtby, Mitroglou, Duff

    Fulham managed to come away from Old Trafford with a last minute 2-2 draw thanks to substitute Darren Bent, but they will be facing a Liverpool side that just thrashed – at the time – league leaders Arsenal 5-1.  The Cottagers, however, have hope in that Liverpool are not as strong away from home, amassing only 16 points from a possible 36. New signing Mitroglou should lead this line at Craven Cottage supported by Damien Duff and fellow new signing Lewis Holtby.  With some tough games ahead as well, Fulham will need to cause an upset somewhere along the line to pull themselves from the bottom of the Premier League.

    Liverpool (4-3-3): Mignolet, Flanagan, Skrtel, K Touré, Cissokho, Coutinho, Gerrard, Henderson, Sterling, Suárez, Sturridge

    Brendan Rodgers may be playing down the Reds’ chances of the title this season, but they are definitely a team playing like title contenders.  Four goals in the first 20 minutes against -at the time- league leaders Arsenal is no easy feat, but they made it look so. Fulham have conceded 55 goals, more than any other club, which will make the Liverpool attacking trio of Luis Suárez, Daniel Sturridge, and Raheem Sterling licking their lips in prospect of adding to their goal tallies.  Their biggest obstacle tonight will be the London tube strike, which could ultimately postpone the game.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

    Remember this?

    Sturridge would love a repeat of his performance against Fulham at Craven Cottage last year… bagging a hat-trick.

    Luis Suárez hasn’t scored in the last two games but we’re backing him to end his mini-drought against the team at the bottom of the Premier League.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Fulham vs. Liverpool: An Alternative Preview

    Fulham have lost 12 of their last 16 Barclays Premier League games at Craven Cottage (W3 D1 L12).

    Liverpool have kept just one clean sheet in their last 11 Barclays Premier League away games.

    Brendan Rodgers’ side have won just two of their last nine Premier League away trips (W2 D3 L4).

    Luis Suarez has scored four goals in four Premier League games against Fulham.

    Daniel Sturridge scored his only previous Premier League hat-trick in Liverpool’s last trip to Craven Cottage to play Fulham (3-1 in May 2013).

    Darren Bent has scored five Premier League goals against Liverpool, perhaps the most famous in a 1-0 win while playing for Sunderland (Oct 2009), where his shot was deflected into the net by a beach ball thrown from the crowd.

    Darren Bent has now equalled his Premier League goal tally from 2012-13 (3), but all three of his goals this season have come after coming on as a substitute.

    Liverpool have scored a league-high 10 goals from headers this season, but only two of these have come in away matches (both by Daniel Sturridge).

    No side has conceded a higher number (15) or proportion (27%) of their goals from outside the box this season in the Premier League than Fulham.

    The Reds have scored more first half goals in the Premier League this season (42) than 16 of the other 19 teams in the league have in total.
