FUL vs LIV Dream11: Champions Liverpool travel to Craven Cottage on Sunday to take on a Fulham side hovering just one place and one point above the relegation zone. Even with their injury crisis, Liverpool have shown no signs of slowing down and an experimental starting eleven and subs bench in their midweek game versus Midtjylland gave a handful of keys players some rest, ready for their encounter with Fulham. It’s been a tough past month for Fulham, who have faced the likes of Everton, Leicester and Manchester City in their last three games, and it is only going to get tougher when they come face-to-face with Liverpool. Expect the champions to pick up another three points on the road in a comfortable victory.

FUL vs LIV Today Match Prediction:
Liverpool's away form is the only thing which has prevented them from taking control of this season's title race so far, but this looks like a good fixture for them on paper with Fulham not faring too well at home either. There will be fans back inside Craven Cottage for the first time since March, which should give Parker's men a much-needed boost, but it is still a big ask for them to get anything against the champions. We predict a 2-1 win for Liverpool in the FUL vs LIV Today Match Prediction .
DEF: Aina, Alexander-Arnold, Matip
MID: Anguissa, Reed, Wijnaldum, Jones
FW: Salah, Mitrovic, Mane
