Fulham are currently on a six-match losing streak, and Premier League (PL) survival appears a remote prospect.
After nine defeats in their last ten, the Londoners are 13 points adrift of safety. For what it’s worth though, they’ve taken 15 of their total 17 points in front of their own fans.
On top of this, the ‘Cottagers’ have been defeated by a two goal margin (or bigger) in five of their six last matches.
Indeed, they’ve conceded two goals or more in 11 straight competitive matches, and face a Liverpool side that is striving to restore its lead at the PL summit.
Title-chasing Liverpool travel to Fulham seeking a PL away win after three straight league draws on the road (all under 2.5 goals).
However, Liverpool have won five of six away matches against teams entering the round in the bottom-half. Across that sequence of six, the ‘Reds’ have kept five clean sheets.
Up front, Liverpool have scored precisely two goals in just one of their last 23 competitive matches, scoring one or less on 11 occasions and three or more on 11 occasions.
They are also unbeaten as matchday favourites in the league this season.
Players to watch: Aleksandar Mitrović is the action-man for Fulham with ten goals and six PL yellow cards, while Sadio Mané is on fire for Liverpool, with ten goals from his last ten competitive matches.
