Liverpool will be determined to end their away-day woes when they travel to Craven Cottage to take on Fulham in Sunday’s Premier League clash.
However having won each of their last six matches against this opposition, they are 3/10 (1.30) favourites with bet365 to bring that run to an end with a victory in West London.
Scott Parker’s men have lost four of their five league fixtures on home turf this season but are available at 8/1 (9.00) to pull off a shock win against the champions.
The guests have drawn each of their last three away games in the league, and there are odds of 9/2 (5.50) on them being forced to settle for a point once again.
Terence Kongolo and Kenny Tete are both ruled out for the hosts due to calf and foot injuries, respectively.
Alisson remains doubtful and Kostas Tsimikas will need to be assessed after coming off injured against Midtjylland on Wednesday, while Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Thiago, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Xherdan Shaqiri and James Milner are all sidelined.
Having started their winless away run with that shocking 7-2 defeat at Aston Villa, Jurgen Klopp’s side has continued to look fairly vulnerable at the back on their travels – conceding in each of the subsequent three league games.
In fact, that run actually extends much further back than the Villa Park debacle, with a return of just four clean sheets in 18 away matches hardly inspiring confidence.
On target in five of their last seven matches, the Cottagers will be particularly optimistic of taking advantage of that vulnerability given the injuries that have piled further pressure on their opponents’ backline.
Having scored in each of their last six home games against Liverpool, Fulham look well worth the 10/11 (1.91) odds to help ensure over 2.5 goals are shared between the two sides for their sixth meeting in seven at Craven Cottage.
All odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
