Fulham vs Liverpool at Craven Cottage, in London, at 31st Round of English Premier League. Fulham vs Liverpool is always the match with big interest after their previous matches in English Premier League. This round is very important fighting for positions in the league. Review our thoughts on this match here below.
Very likely that Fulham will be relegated to English Championship. Now they stand at 19th position with 13 points difference between safe place. This season they are looking good in the attack, especially when Ryan Babel came to the club. Moreover, players like Mitrovic, Schurrle and Lucian Vietto are able to make dangerous moments even from the hardest situation. The biggest problem is the defense as they conceded 68 goals in 30 games and that is the weakest result in Premier League. They lost 6 games in a row. Moreover, they collected only 3 points in the last 10 matches by winning against Brighton at Craven Cottage and lost all other matches. Most interesting that Fulham will meet Manchester City at the end of the month.
Andrea Schurrle, Marcus Bettinelli, and Alfie Mawson will probably miss the next match against Liverpool due to injuries. Other main squad players are fit and can play this important match. However, morale in the team is very low, as they are favorites to be relegated.
In Premier League Fulham scores on average 0.9 goals per game, pass with 79.2% accuracy and control the game by 48.5% possession.
Liverpool played a great game against Bayern Munich and kicked them off Champions League by getting a place in Quarter-final. In Barclays Premier League they are unbeaten in 9 matches, however, they played 4 draws, which took 8 important points and now Manchester City is at the 1st place with 1 point difference. Most important that Liverpool is playing great, at the defense since this season they conceded only 17 goals in 30 matches and only 2 goals in last 5 PL games against Burnley. Of course, Liverpool is one of the favorites to win the league, but their path in the Champions League continues and they have to rotate their team, to give more rest for main players in this intense period.
Liverpool needs to give rest to main squad players after a hard game against Bayern Munich. Moreover, the international break is very soon, so very likely, that Liverpool will rotate the first eleven.
On average Liverpool score 2.3 goals per game, pass with 84.4% accuracy and control the game by 58.4% possession.
After 4 years break, these teams met at 12th round in Premier League. Liverpool won the game, which was very predictable considering their good shape. They fully controlled the game by 73% possession and made 20 goal attempts.
