The Kop topped their Champions League group during the week despite a final matchday draw against FC Midtjylland where Jurgen Klopp could afford to rotate his team. Now, they’ll hope to reap the benefits as they head to Craven Cottage to take on a Fulham side who Paddy has already paid out to be relegated.
The second we did that they began to pick up points and have now moved out of the dropzone. You’re welcome, Fulham fans. Here, our traders have taken a look at the numbers that matter to pick out their three best bets for Sunday’s 4.30pm kickoff.
With Mo Salah playing a full 90 during the week and Diogo Jota out injured of this clash, Sadio Mane is close to guaranteed a full 90 minutes here so I think there’s value in him to score 2 or more. Liverpool will dominate the possession here so I can see Fulham having to deal with a constant strain of pressure which I’m sure Mane will be playing a big part of.
Liverpool know that there won’t be any issues creating chances here so I’m sure the focus of this match is to keep the Fulham attack out and hold onto that clean sheet. With Fulham failing to score in 5 of their 11 games so far, I can see that poor run continuing here. Aleksandar Mitrovic hasn’t been firing this year yet so with question marks concerning him, Fulham don’t have that standout striker they need so Liverpool could win to Nil.
Since returning from a spell out with injury, Reed has picked up 2 cards in his last 5 appearances for Fulham. With his role being sitting in front of the defence as a CDM, he’s sure to play a big part in trying to keep the Liverpool attack out and stopping those quick counter that Liverpool possess. With these factors, he’s sure to get involved in a couple of challenges so I can see value in Harrison Reed to be Booked.
