Liverpool take on Fulham today at Craven Cottage as Jurgen Klopp’s Reds look to gain back top spot in the Premier League after Manchester City played in the FA Cup yesterday.
After Wednesday’s win against Bayern Munich, Liverpool are on a mini roll again. 3 points today could be a big decider in this season’s push for the title.
The Anfield Talk’s Aaron (@ACawley8) thinks the Reds will lineup like this…
Alisson. He’s Liverpool’s undisputed number one and will be looking for a clean sheet to continue his pursuit towards Petr Cech’s clean sheet record.
Trent Alexander-Arnold. Like Alisson, Trent is Klopp’s favoured player to play in the right back role. As this season has progressed, Trent has become one of the most consistent players in the Premier League.
Joël Matip. With Klopp unwilling to possibly risk Dejan Lovren yet, Matip has played his way in to Klopp’s defence. Along side Virgil Van Dijk, Matip has been another consistent performer over the last few matches.
Virgil Van Dijk. Just because he’s Vigil Van Dijk.
Andy Robertson. Just like TAA on the right hand side of defence, Robbo is one of the first names on the Liverpool team sheet every week.
Fabinho. The Brazilan is one of the most improved players in the Liverpool starting eleven this season. He’s the glue that sticks the Liverpool defence and attack together.
Georginio Wijnaldum. While some maybe questioning Gini’s performances of late his versatility in Liverpool’s midfield is something that makes him another Klopp favourite. His energy is something that gives him the advantage over the likes of James Milner and Naby Keita.
Adam Lallana. A controversial shout this but after his performance last week against Burnley I think his unpredictably is something Liverpool have maybe lacked for periods this season.
Sadio Mané. Although Mané didn’t train with the team yesterday I fully expect him to start today’s game. If he misses out I would like to see Shaqiri play alongside Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.
Roberto Firmino. Because he’s Roberto Firmino
Mohamed Salah. Although the goals have appeared to have dried up for Salah his over all performances on the pitch have been not short of fantastic lately. Playing him on his favoured right side should allow him to drift in to spaces that he could exploit for Liverpool and hopefully find the back of the net again.
