Liverpool predicted lineup vs Fulham today - Premier League

  • Liverpool take on Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alisson & Diogo Jota have recently returned from injuries
  • Reds title chances are on the line

Jurgen Klopp's farewell tour promised so much, but the German could now realistically depart with just a Carabao Cup in his back pocket from his final season at Anfield.

Liverpool exited Europe in midweek despite beating Atalanta at the Gewiss. A 3-0 home defeat proved far too much to come back from, with Klopp's men starting to suffer from an incredibly demanding schedule.

The Reds are two points adrift of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, and while City have proven to be fallible this season, it feels as if Liverpool must win out if they're to usurp the Cityzens.

A tricky game away at Fulham beckons after their continental exploits, and here's the team Klopp could pick for Sunday's outing.

GK: Alisson - The Brazilian notched his first clean sheet since returning from injury in midweek. Alisson should remain between the sticks for the rest of the season despite Caoimhín Kelleher's stellar stint in his absence.

RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold - Alexander-Arnold made his first start since February on Thursday, reminding us all of his supreme passing range. His return should serve as a major boost.

CB: Ibrahima Konate - Klopp hasn't been afraid to utilise impressive youngster Jarell Quansah to offer Konate some respite, but the Frenchman should earn the lion's share of minutes until the season's end.

CB: Virgil van Dijk - The Dutchman has registered the most Premier League minutes in the Liverpool squad by quite a distance, with Van Dijk also starting both legs against Atalanta. He's particularly desperate to give Klopp the perfect send-off.

LB: Andy Robertson - The dynamic full-back has had his fair share of injuries this term, but Robertson has shown signs of rediscovering his best form in recent weeks.

CM: Wataru Endo - Endo has played a low-key role in Liverpool's campaign thus far, and he should return to the team on Sunday after earning a midweek rest.

CM: Alexis Mac Allister - The Argentine looks like he's suffering from fatigue, but Mac Allister is so crucial to the functionality of Liverpool's midfield that he can't miss Sunday's game.

CM: Harvey Elliott - Elliott is used to making a difference off the bench, but he could get the nod at Craven Cottage, replacing Dominik Szoboszlai.

RW: Mohamed Salah - Some have questioned whether Salah, who scored a penalty in Bergamo, needs to come out of the team given his struggles since returning from injury. Klopp would be a brave man to drop the Egyptian, however.

ST: Diogo Jota - Liverpool's inefficient work in the final third should be mitigated by sharpshooter Jota, although the Portuguese international caught the Reds' finishing bug during last weekend's defeat to Palace.

LW: Darwin Nunez - The agent of chaos should come in for the relentless Luis Diaz, who's been a near constant in the Liverpool XI in 2024.
