Fulham vs Liverpool
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 13 December 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage.
The Cottagers are one of the worst teams in the competition, and are placed 17th in the table at the moment. They have a total of two wins all through this campaign, and one of those had come against the 19th placed West Brom.
They are also a newly promoted club, and have conceded the second-most number of goals so far in the league.
Quite easily they are one of the contenders to get relegated at the end of the 2020-21 season.
Meanwhile, the Reds are the defending champions of the PL, and are currently in the second spot in the table. Do note that they have same number of points as that of toppers Tottenham.
Since the Spurs are taking on Crystal Palace this weekend (a much better team than Scott Parker’s men), the Reds have a chance to take the top-most spot for themselves.
On top of that, Jurgen Klopp’s men also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years.
Likely, expect a Liverpool win this Sunday at the Craven Cottage.
Fulham vs Liverpool: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Klopp’s men are on a six-game winning run.
- They have scored two or more goals in seven of the former eight clashes.
- It’s been eight years since they have lost against this opponent.
- The guests have scored two or more goals in nine of the former fourteen encounters.
- The visitors are also on a winning streak at this ground since 2013.
Fulham vs Liverpool: Prediction
The Cottagers lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against Manchester City. In the meantime, the title-holders registered a 4-0 win at home against Wolves the past game week.
Going on, Parker’s men were winless in eight of their last ten overall match-ups, and seven of these were losses. At home, they had also lost five of their past seven appearances.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 12 of their former 13 games, and on the road they remained so in 11 of their preceding 12 trips.
In addition, the six-time European champions also are on a six-fixture winning run in h2h meetings, and they also are on a winning run in such games at this venue since 2013.
Taking these stats into account, it’s abundantly clear that Liverpool are the overwhelming favorites. Expect them to post a huge win this Sunday against the struggling Fulham.
