Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen was quoted as saying he knew Manchester United's tactics last Saturday and it was easy to combat them by putting in a big center half. Well he faces a different type of threat on Wednesday night when his team comes up against the pace and pressing of a Liverpool team that will be flying high after their 5-1 win against Arsenal. Fulham will again look to the midfield general Steve Sidwell to bring the fight to Liverpool and will try to close down the space between the midfield and back four so as to put pressure on Couthino, Gerrard and Henderson. Fulham's new center half partnership though is not blessed with speed and against Suarez, Sturridge and Sterling thats one thing the Cottagers will need. But Fulham put up a terrific battling performance last Sunday at Old Trafford and I think they will again raise their game for a match with one of the top teams in the league. Brendan Rodgers has been quoted this week saying his team is not in the title hunt, well he's wrong. There is every chance that Liverpool could be 4 points off top and closing in on the top three after tonight's fixtures. With Suarez and Sturridge up top Liverpool have the best strike partnership in the league and with Raheem sterling and philip Couthino starting to consistantly perform to a high level there is every reason for optimism in the red half of merseyside. An intruging match up this one, on paper Liverpool should easily win this by two or three but then again I thought the same about Fulham's opposition at the weekend. Fulham are at home here and Craven Cottage is a small, tight pitch where space will not be easily found. I think the Cottagers can do enough to frustrate Liverpool tonight and I like the home team on the handicap. Giving any home team a +2 goal headstart is tough to overcome and at worst I think we push here. There is a chance though that Fulham like West Brom last night, nick a point.
