FBL-EUR-C1-BAYERN MUNICH-LIVERPOOL

Fulham vs Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp's Best Available Reds Lineup

Liverpool travel to Craven Cottage on Sunday to face a Fulham side who are all but certain to be relegated this season.


Manchester City don't play in the Premier League this weekend due to their FA Cup game at Swansea, so the door is wide open for Liverpool to reclaim top spot with a win over Scott Parker's side.


The Reds should be full of confidence following their incredible 3-1 at Bayern Munich in the week to set up a quarter final showdown with Porto in the Champions League quarter finals.


But Klopp will not want his side to look past this game and with just one away win in five in the league, Liverpool need to start looking convincing on the road once again.

1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Alisson (GK) - Liverpool needed a world-class goalkeeper in the summer and the Brazilian has not disappointed since his arrival from Roma. He has a league high 17 clean sheets this season and his distribution has also become invaluable to Klopp's side.


Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB) - Making a strong case to be England's first choice right-back with his performances of late. The 20-year-old is a fantastic crosser of the ball and his pace and defensive ability is a huge asset for the Reds.


Virgil Van Dijk (CB) - Has been worth every single penny of his £75m transfer fee from Southampton and is a big reason why Liverpool have the best defence in the league. Has to be considered the favourite for Premier League player of the year, and they would be nowhere near the title if it wasn't for the big Dutchman.


Joel Matip (CB) - Despite Dejan Lovren's return to fitness and own goal in Munich, Klopp will keep faith in Matip, who has proved an adequate partner to Van Dijk in recent weeks.


Andy Robertson (LB) - The Scottish international didn't have his greatest evening at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday, but there probably hasn't been a more consistent left-back in the league this season that Robertson. His immense work rate and determination should see him in the team of the year.

2. Midfielders

Fabinho (CDM) - With Jordan Henderson out due to an ankle injury sustained against Bayern, Fabinho will come in to fill the void left by the captain. The negative reaction given when it was announced that the Brazil international wasn't starting that game tells you all you need to know about how much he has improved since a shaky start at Anfield.


Georginio Wijnaldum (CM) - Often seen as under-rated midfielder, the Dutchman's relentless energy and desire to get the ball forward quickly are all trademarks of a classic Jurgen Klopp style player.


Adam Lallana (CM) - Has had relentless bad luck with injures in recent seasons, but his man of the match display against Burnley last weekend should see him start against a team famously woeful at defending. Should have some joy running at Fulham's back line

3. Forwards

Mohamed Salah (RW) - One goal in nine games will set alarm bells ringing for sure, but his overall contribution to the team cannot be overlooked. Isn't quite living up to the ridiculously high standards of the previous campaign, which may possibly be linked to his injury at the back end of last season not being fully healed.


Roberto Firmino (ST) - Although the 27-year-old may not be the most prolific, he is one of Liverpool's most important players due to his incredible desire to help the team win. Links attacks together so well by dropping deep and drifting out wide when needed.


Sadio Mane (LW) - His recent form has helped Liverpool stay in contention, and Mane's brilliant brace in midweek, along with his 16 league goals this season, has proven why he is such a key component to Klopp's side.
