Liverpool team news from Newsnow Liverpool as the Reds host Fulham on Sunday.
Latest from Newsnow Liverpool
Liverpool are gearing up to face Fulham in the Premier League, bracing for the absence of five key players under Jürgen Klopp. As they embark on a crucial stretch in the season, the Reds aim to secure a strong start in the upcoming fixtures.
On a recent Saturday, Arsenal faced a late scare but maintained thier lead at the top of the Premier League table after a comfortable encounter with Wolves. Now, it’s Liverpool and Manchester City’s turn to respond on today.
Liverpool’s focus is squarely on their match against Fulham at Anfield. While Spurs have a positive track record against Pep Guardiola’s team, Manchester City is poised to secure three points at the Etihad Stadium.
With a challenging series of fixtures ahead, Liverpool must kick off the week effectively. Following the clash with Fulham, they face Sheffield United on Wednesday and Crystal Palace on Saturday, both in early kick-offs.
Jürgen Klopp faces the challenge of navigating the Fulham game without five key players: Alisson Becker, Diogo Jota, Andy Robertson, Thiago Alcântara, and Stefan Bajčetić. Unfortunately, none are expected to return soon, with Alisson likely sidelined until Manchester United visit Anfield later this month.
While Jota’s absence is more extended than Alisson’s, the exact duration remains uncertain. Robertson, Thiago, and Bajčetić are enduring long-term injuries. This puts the spotlight on players like Wataru Endō and Harvey Elliott, who will need to step up.
