Liverpool receive major injury boost ahead of Premier League clash with Fulham

The Brain Behind The Brawn

The Brain Behind The Brawn

We won it but after the game, it is: "Yeah but it is Leicester".

They've improved at the back a thousand times over since this time a year ago, and as a result, they are once again genuine title contenders.

Fulham head to Anfield on Sunday having slid to the foot of the table after a miserable run of five consecutive defeats.

"We must make people around us proud". We go for everything. We don't want to lose and you always have to show a reaction after a defeat; that's obvious. The end product, the finishing was maybe not so good often enough but they've scored goals. But in the two games before they were OK. It was really good football in a lot of moments.

He said talks were "all positive", but that they contrast with perceptions of Liverpool's campaign outside the club. The boys looked much more mature, but not in the last game. It was open, fast paced, end-to-end.

The central defender was also criticised for his lacklustre defending at the Emirates last weekend as Alexandre Lacazette found a late equaliser for Arsenal. Indeed he has contributed just one goal less this season as of now than he had at this time last season.

Michael Owen blamed Van Dijk for Liverpool going behind to Red Star on Tuesday evening. The feeling was that a win was in the bag before the plane was even boarded. I can't ever predict a Fulham defeat!

How do you expect Fulham to line up at Anfield?

The Liverpool manager revealed the squad met to analyse "how we see our situation" after their Champions League defeat by Red Star Belgrade in Serbia this week. Their previously admirable resolve did not save them on this occasion.

They have conceded at least two goals in nine of their 11 Premier League games and there seems no easy fix to their defensive issues, given the lack of summer spending on reinforcements in that area.

But look, it's easy to overreact to a horrific result.

"You will never score a goal against a team like Fulham with the quality they have only because you go in the game with the wrong attitude and think about scoring, scoring, scoring or whatever".

"We all struggle a bit in the last game but it's not too important, I don't make a big fuss of it, or on the other side I don't celebrate performances after when we win a good one".

There's every chance Belgrade was just a blip in what has been an impressive season so far. Then you have a better picture.

Liverpool's strike trio have failed to replicate last season's blistering form so far this season, but Salah, Mane and the returning Firmino will be confident of scoring against the most porous defence in the top tier.
