Fulham vs. Liverpool Prediction
Fulham takes the 17th spot in the league table, but they have been playing superbly in recent weeks. They have won two of their last five games, with great players’ likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa.
Liverpool, on the other hand, are second in the league table, behind leaders Tottenham Hotspur on goal difference. Their defense seems shaky, but Klopp have found a way to utilize youngsters and Fabinho to form a solid backline.
