Fulham welcomes Liverpool at Craven Cottage as the price for the maximum points is at stake between both sides. This match sees both teams at different ends of the Premier League (table) square up against each other.
Liverpool occupies the second position behind League Leaders Manchester City while Fulham lies in the drop (relegation) zone.
This is the more reason the match is a crucial one as Liverpool aims to climb to the League summit above League rivals Manchester City who are not in action in the Premier League this weekend.
This will be well contested by the bottom-placed Fulham side as we evaluate the three players that can (tamper) haunt Liverpool title dreams at Craven Cottage.
The Dutch International who spent 4 years at the club (between 2007 and 2011) will lead his side out in search for goals against the title-chasing Liverpool.
The former Liverpool star would fancy his chances against his former club as the Reds visit their London base following Liverpool’s Champions League exploits (success) against Bavarian giants Bayern Munich.
This will be put to test when the Dutch star (Ryan) faces Liverpool defence that let in three goals in their last two games as the Anfield side conceded twice in the 4-2 win over Burnley at home.
The German may need medical checks as regards to his availability for this fixture. If the results are positive, then it will be a big boost to former Fulham player and stand in boss Scott Parker.
Parker (Fulham boss) will be without goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli and defenders Alfie Mawson with both out of the tie due to knee injuries.
But with Schurrle, Parker got an attacking threat in his squad as they aim to scuffle Liverpool title ambitions at home (Craven Cottage) this weekend.
The Serbian would be out to do the damage against Liverpool but he will first have to contend with Liverpool strong man at the back in Virgil Van Dijk.
However, Mitrovic’s strong physical build up and a genuine eye for goal may stand him out in this match as we have seen in the Premier League.
The Reds may have their all to do to keep out the Serbian whose composure in front of goal has been proven countless times in the Premier League.
