      Pre-Match: Fulham FC v Liverpool: Premier League (Sun 13 Dec 2020 4:30 pm)
      Dec 11, 2020 10:03:31 pm
      Sunday may see the return of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alisson Becker to the Liverpool team. Kostas Tsimikas and Diogo Jota are new injury doubts.

      Journos already hyping the midweek match against Spurs but three points in London on Sunday must be the absolute priority for the team just now.

      Alisson
      Trent, Matip, Fabinho, Robbo
      Hendo, Gini, Curtis Jones
      Salah, Bobby, Mane

      Saw a short clip of Alisson back in training in the LFC FB page, which was good to see. But now that Adrian is no longer in goal i've gone from "COME BACK ASAP" to "not need to rush it if he's not 100% ready".

      Getting Ox back would be good from a warm body perspective, but he'll be miles away from being in form but at least it's encouraging to see people coming back. Saw a 15min video of Klopp's press conference and don't think he mentioned Thiago's status, not that i expect him to be back any time soon, anyway. He did describe Diogo's injury as a "knock" so should not be anything major. I expect him to be available as a sub.

      Surely a win against struggling Fulham, by at least a couple of goals, is well and truly on the cards.

      So looks like Jota did pick up an injury then in that pointless match?

      NB: Team no longer available

      I would give Kelleher another game so not to rush Alisson back and he will be dropped for Spurs. AOC needs time to be fully fit.

      Id go with this but half suspect Minamino based on Klopps praise. In saying that he might need to be kept back to cover the front 3 with Jota out

      In the light of Jota's knock he won't be risked especially with Spuds up next, he could/should be ok for that, encouraging that Ox is back in full training but like any player he won't be rushed back so possibly see him for last 15 @ the Cottage,
      Clint's X1 looks about right for me except Ali could come back in,and will have too much for Fulham,
      I can't see anything other than another win for the Champions.

      Yeah dead right. Any pre match thoughts that this will be a walkover, may just come back and bite us on the arse. Attitude has to be bang on from the start.
      These are the sort of games we’ve slipped up in, in years gone by ! And with our injuries 😱 god forbid !

      No issue with our mentality..it’s not Fulham I’m worried about, it’s VAR & the ref..

      I hope we smack in 4 or more today..go for the jugular from the off..which I think we will.

      If we turn up then we should win this. I know Fulham beat Leicester but we really should be winning this, Fulham are not very good.

      Ive actually gone for 0-4 in the predictions, but couldn't give toss as long as we get 3 points. We've been strongish at the back, strong up top, but wondering what mid field we can muster to help with the cover, and assist in attack. Running short of cunning from the middle at the mo, which somewhat stiffles the service to the front 3. Might change my prediction after all  ??? Still be going for the win though  ;D
      I expect it will be Hendo, Gini and one other ?

      Should be business as usual, especially with the added motivation of City & Chelsea dropping points. I'm sure the lads will be right up for it. As Shabs said, my only real worry lies with the toenail-measuring nerds in the VAR bunker

      Pressure is always there, if not more. When Hendo plays, he'll push everyone to give a little more. That's how it is.

      Six big points in these next two games.

      Could be a healthy little lead if we can get two wins.

      Bit concerning that Fulham pulled a result out of the hat the other week but even with injuries we should have significantly more quality to get a convincing 3 points this afternoon and then onto Spurs!

      We should have more than enough to comfortably beat Fulham if the strongest team available is selected.
      I can't see Jürgen messing with the side too much, he'll know how important todays game is, especially with other teams dropping points yesterday.
      Hendo & Gini in the middle will be too much for Fulham.

      Easy enough 3 points unless we get the usual VAR nonsense, then all bets are off.
