There’s a somewhat reduced Premier League fixture list this weekend due to the FA Cup. Liverpool are the only top 5 team playing in the league.
Fulham vs Liverpool
Sun 17/03 at 14.15
After an emphatic win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League during the week, Liverpool head to Fulham full of confidence. They could regain the top spot on Sunday as Man City are playing in the FA Cup.
Manager Jurgen Klopp has expressed his delight claiming ‘Liverpool are in Europe’s elite again’.
Meanwhile, Fulham are struggling at the other end of the table. They recently sacked manager Claudio Ranieri due to poor results and they are likely to be relegated from the Premier League this season. Scott Parker is the man given the tough task of turning the team around, while the club look to appoint a full time manager.
In terms of team news, Fulham don’t have any new injuries to contend with.
Meanwhile, at the other end, Jordan Henderson went off during the midweek game against Bayern Munich and he look set to miss this one.
This is set to be a one sided affair… You can guess which way!
The FA Cup
Unfortunately that’s it for the league games this weekend. However, there’s plenty of other games to look forward to in the FA Cup.
Swansea welcome Man City whilst Wolves welcome Man Utd on Saturday evening.
