Last Word on Sports attempts to compile a Liverpool Predicted Lineup as the Reds look to extend their winning streak with another thrilling victory.
Liverpool Lineup Prediction vs Fulham
Liverpool’s Starting XI Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool team has recently shown a late resurgence in the Premier League season, even if it may be too little, too late for their top-four ambitions. He will, however, keep them motivated to keep going and will most likely stick with the core players who have performed well in recent games.
This will require the backline of Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ibrahima Konate, Virgil van Dijk, and Andy Robertson to work together. Fabinho’s form has improved, so he’ll keep his place alongside Curtis Jones, who scored in Tottenham’s win. Jordan Henderson, once hailed by Klopp as a ‘unbelievably important’ player, should return for this, while the front three of Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz, and Cody Gakpo keep their places after impressing against Spurs.
Recent Liverpool Form and Tactics
Liverpool is on a roll and has won four of their last five Premier League games, including a thwarting of Arsenal’s title bid.
Klopp has reintroduced his team’s trademark ‘heavy-metal’ style of play, with Liverpool producing some excellent attacking football at home in recent weeks. He has them playing incisive attacking football, which includes pressing opponents inside their own box and elaborating on quick passing moves. He’s even given Alexander-Arnold a new role at times, operating as a centre-midfielder, allowing him to create more chances.
Liverpool prefers to create the majority of their chances in wide areas, with the wing-backs frequently overlapping into the final third to allow the wingers to go inwards and pack around the opposition area, causing chaos and allowing them to score a lot of goals.
Alexander-Arnold has been in fantastic form over the last month, assisting in all five of his Premier League appearances. He’s currently the glue that holds most of Liverpool’s chances together, utilizing his impressive crossing ability and vision to set up big things for his teammates. Along with him, Liverpool rely heavily on the other winger, Andy Robertson, to create chances with his impressive delivery from wide areas.
Mo Salah’s lethal finishing skills are still going strong, and he’ll look to use his clever movement to trouble the Fulham defenders and slot clinical shots into the back of the net. Diaz made an impressive comeback from injury against Tottenham, as he aims to use his dribbling ability to create moves for Liverpool while also scoring goals with his smart finishing skills. Gakpo’s current role requires him to drop deep and link-up play, but he also needs to use his keen eye for goals to become a more dangerous threat for the Reds.
