Liverpool vs Fulham
English Premier League
Date: 3 May 2023, Wednesday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool).
Liverpool kept their top-four ambitions alive thanks to a stunning Diogo Jota goal in the dying minutes of the weekend’s Matchday No 34 derby against Tottenham Hotspur.
The Reds also kept their winning thread in life, making it four victories on the spin in the Premier League to stay in contention for the Champions League football next year.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are now fifth in the league, sitting nine points shy of Newcastle and seven points below Manchester United who have a game in hand.
Liverpool will have a nice chance to stay on winning course on Wednesday evening when they host Fulham in the postponed match of Gameweek No 28 at the Anfield.
While the hosts can’t afford a single slip-up in the remaining five games of the season, Fulham have nothing but pride left to play for.
The visitors stand 10th in the league table and have only a potential top-half finish as a motivation.
Marco Silva’s men did put up a great effort on Sunday afternoon when they caused new leaders Manchester City a lot of problems in a narrow 1-2 defeat at Craven Cottage.
On the flip side, the Cottagers saw one of their key players Andreas Pereira suffering a tough injury on the occasion, meaning they are now without both of their top two scorers knowing that Aleksandar Mitrovic is still suspended.
Liverpool vs Fulham Head-to-head
- Fulham kept Liverpool to a 2-2 draw at Craven Cottage in the very opening day of the 2022/23 Premier League campaign back in early-August.
