Fulham team news: Injuries and suspensions ahead of Liverpool clash

Liverpool are looking to get their season back on track when they travel to Fulham in the Premier League this Sunday. 

It's been a torrid two weeks for Jurgen Klopp's side following their Europa League exit at the hands of Atalanta and potentially costly slip-ups in the title race, with performances and results having been extremely poor.

Uncharacteristically sloppy and lifeless displays mean that winning the Premier League title is no longer in Liverpool's hands, with a victory at Craven Cottage this Sunday essential to Liverpool's fading charge.

Fulham have proved tricky customers for Liverpool this season in three meetings. The Reds needed two late goals to win 4-3 in the Premier League against the Cottagers back in December, while they scraped past Marco Silva's side in the Carabao Cup semi-final just over a month later.

With the weekend's trip to west London proving pivotal, here is the latest Fulham team news ahead of the match.

FULHAM TEAM NEWS: INJURIES & SUSPENSIONS

Unfortunately for Liverpool, Fulham have no injuries or suspensions to worry about ahead of the weekend's fixture. Literally none.

Bar any late fitness concerns, Liverpool will have to overcome Fulham's strongest lineup, with the Cottagers having proved a handful for the Reds numerous times this season.

Silva may well opt for the same starting lineup as the one that beat West Ham United 2-0 on the road last Sunday, with rumored Liverpool target Tosin Adarabioyo among the names in defence.

Sasa Lukic could partner the integral Joao Palhinha in midfield, while the skilful Willian and former Everton man Alex Iwobi could take residence on the wings.

Former Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira, who scored a brace last weekend, will start in behind the in-form Rodrigo Muniz.

Ex-Liverpool attacker Harry Wilson, who scored at Anfield earlier this season, is likely to feature on the bench, as are the likes of Adama Traore and Chelsea loanee Armando Broja.

Predicted Fulham starting XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Castagne, Adarabioyo, Bassey, Robinson; Lukic, Palhinha; Iwobi, Pereira, Willian; Muniz.
