Liverpool is hosting Fulham at Anfield in round 27 in the English Premier League.
Liverpool is in a massive crisis, and they don’t look good. With 5 losses in their last 7 games, and without a win in their last 7 home games in the EPL, Liverpool has dropped to 7th place in the standings with 43 points, 47 scored goals, and 35 conceded goals. Liverpool is playing in the Champions League against Leipzig next week, and even though they have the advantage, I think Liverpool will need a good game to advance to the next stage. In their last EPL game against Chelsea, Liverpool has had 54% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. Liverpool is creating chances, and their defense is solid despite all the injured, but they are struggling with scoring goals lately, and that is what is costing Liverpool. With a conceded goal in the 42nd minute, Liverpool has lost this match 0-2. Salah has scored 17 goals for Liverpool so far this season, while Robertson and Firmino added 5 assists each. Van Dijk, Gomez, Matip, and Henderson are all injured, while Kelleher, Philips, and Kabak are still questionable. The Champions League spot is further and further away, while their dreams of the title are long gone, but winning the Champions League hopes are still there, and I think they will do their best to get there.
Fulham has had some good results as of late, and they are undefeated in their last 7 games on the road. Fulham was hosting Tottenham earlier this week in the EPL, and they were actually the better team with 59% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and a decent 83% of the correct passes. With an own goal scored in the 19th minute, Fulham has lost this match 0-1, and this result was massively disappointing for them. Fulham is still fighting to get out of the relegation zone, and they are now only 3 points away. Fulham is in 18th place with 23 points, only 21 scored goals, and 33 conceded goals. Bobby Reid has scored 5 goals for Fulham, while Lookman added 4 goals. Mitrovic and Lookman added 3 assists each. Fulham is lucky that there are many struggling teams in the EPL this season, but I think it will come down to them or Newcastle, and I think it will be the battle until the last game.
As I’ve mentioned in one of my previous articles, I rarely take the under, and it never happens that I take it twice on the same day. Liverpool is struggling with scoring goals while Fulham is playing solid soccer on the defensive end, and for that reason, I will take the under here as well.
