Liverpool vs. Fulham – EPL, March 7, 2021

| March 5, 2021 12:30 pm PDT

This fixture has become incredibly important for both clubs after recent results – but for different reasons.

Liverpool needs three points to start challenging for a European place again, while Fulham knows that it will need to keep the pressure on Newcastle if it is to stay up this season.

Liverpool vs. Fulham United Odds

Liverpool to Win-263
The Draw+380
Fulham to Win+690

Although there is quite a large gap between these odds from BetOnline, I can guarantee that they are much closer than if this game was played just two months ago. Liverpool is on a terrible run of form but should win this one. That makes the home win bet the way to go, even if the odds are not the greatest.

Liverpool vs. Fulham Match Preview

Frustration was the word of the day at Anfield on Thursday. The 1-0 defeat to Chelsea was bad enough, but the way that Liverpool lost was probably worse. Mo Salah summed up the club’s feelings when he was visibly upset at being substituted by Klopp with around half an hour still to play.

Chelsea had scored the only goal of the game by then but had dominated throughout – and also had a goal disallowed. There have been just three wins in 13 EPL games now for Liverpool, an incredible statistic for a club that swept all before it on the way to the league title last season.

Fulham also lost in midweek but will be more confident of possibly even coming away from Anfield with a draw after the way the team has been playing in the last few weeks. Manager Scott Parker was disappointed with a few of the refereeing decisions in the game against Spurs on Thursday – one that ended in defeat but could have been so different.

The Cottagers have only lost two of the last ten and have started to exert some pressure on Newcastle to match it for games and points. One problem that hasn’t really been solved is the lack of goals scored by Fulham. Results have not been terrible, but a side is always going to be a disadvantage if it can’t find the net. But I’m not sure any Fulham striker will have too many chances to put that right at the weekend anyway.

Liverpool vs. Fulham Pick

Pick
  • Liverpool to Win
    -263

Liverpool is hardly inspiring confidence at the moment. But, even though Klopp’s side has lost five successive games at home for the first time in the club’s history, this is a team full of stars. Defensive absentees have obviously made a difference, but Fulham might not quite be able to take advantage of that on Sunday.
