The premier League clash between Liverpool and Fulham will kick-off on Sunday, 7th March, 2021 at 2:00 GMT, 3:00 pm Nigerian time.

The thoughts of Liverpool going over 5 straight games without scoring a goal from open play at home would have been immposible last season when the Merseysiders ran away with the League title. However, this is the reality now after losing 1-0 to Chelsea in mid-week -  a game that made Klopp and his boys set an unwanted record of five straight home loss in their 128 years of existence, and coincidentally masking them the only defending English league champions to ever experience such a low ebb.

The more we talk about the Reds' Premier League performance, the more we see that even European football next is season is looking like a daunting task for free-falling Liverpool who have found the back of the net just once before the halftime interval in their last 12 Premier League matches despite accumulating 78 shot attempts during the first interval in that period. The Reds could gain confidence as they face a team they beaten in all of their last three visits to Anfield in a Halftime/fulltime settings, yet it is worth noting that they have struggled so much at home this season when playing agsinst teams in the bottom five ahead of this game week winning just one of their last three games against such opponents (D1, L1).

Fulham gained a point against their host in this reverse fixture and they could of getting another one considering Liverpool’s poor run of form. On a more brighter side for the London club is that they have lost just one of their last six games; winning two and pulling up three draws. However, the Cottagers will be rueing missed chances this season across the last 16 rounds, and having more goal attempts than their opposition on the day in three of their last four winless games.

Six of the London club’s last seven Premier League away games have also ended in the points been shared with the Cottagers winning just one, albeit those seven  matches also make up Fulham’s longest ever Premier League unbeaten run as visitors after they conceded the opener just once in that period.

Liverpool’s Mo Salah have scored four of their last seven Premier League seven goals, all in the second interval. For Fulham, Ademola Lookman netted the team’s last goal in the second half. This game should produce goals as their last seven Head-to-Heads have produced both half goals.

Jurgen Klopp’s injury crisis have ensured the German tactician has fielded 20 different centre back pairing this season and the lost keep growing for the Premier League defending Champions with the likes of club captain, Jordan Henderson, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and long term absentee, Virgil va Dijk all suffering from Knee and Ankle injuries which have made the Reds struggle all through the sesson.

For Scott Parker, he has only Tim Cairney who is suffering from a Knee injury to worry about.
