Tooor for Fulham FC, 1-1 by Harry Wilson
There is the direct answer from the guests! Robinson wins the ball in his own half and sets pace down the left wing. When he gets to the penalty area, he puts the ball across the first post, where Wilson is there and pushes the ball over the line.
The hosts’ lead is by no means undeserved. Liverpool have more possession of the ball and are significantly more active in attack. How does Fulham react to the setback?
Great for Liverpool FC, 1-0 by Trent Alexander-Arnold
An incredible goal for the home team! The Reds get a free kick from a promising position about 22 meters to the right of the opponent’s box, which Alexander-Arnold circles over the wall and right into the corner – a great goal!
The game is back on and Leno can continue playing for the time being. Liverpool continue to have a lot of possession and are slowly making their way forward. Fulham gets a diagonal ball to Tsimikas on the left in the penalty area but is well defended.
The game remains suspended as Leno is treated in the Fulham penalty area. The goalkeeper apparently injured his head and was given a bandage.
Leno was injured in the situation and needs treatment. It is questionable whether things will continue for the German here.
The ball is in Fulham’s box, but then a whistle sounds. Szoboszlai shoots from around 18 meters, so that Leno lets the hard shot hit forward. Díaz is there, but fails because of Leno. Salah scores in the second attempt – but Díaz was previously offside, so the goal doesn’t count.
As expected, the hosts take control and play actively forward. But Fulham is compact with two chains and makes the spaces narrow, so Liverpool haven’t been able to get through so far.
Now the LFC is also joining the game. The hosts combine forward. Díaz receives the ball on the edge of the box, turns around the opponent and fires directly at the goal. His shot from a central position is too unplaced, allowing Leno to hold on to the ball.
Fulham have the first attack of the game. Iwobi is sent with a long pass down the left and picks up the pace. But his cross pass into the penalty area ends up directly in the arms of Kelleher.
The ball is rolling. Fulham kick off in white and black jerseys. Liverpool are all in red.
The teams enter the field. Will Liverpool get their seventh win in their seventh home game? We’ll find out soon. We look forward to an exciting encounter.
The referee of the game is Stuart Attwell. His assistants on the sidelines are Richard West and James Mainwaring.
Let’s look at the personnel: On Liverpool’s side, Kelleher stands between the posts for the injured Alisson. Gravenberch and Díaz are also in the starting line-up.
A look at history shows that both teams faced each other in a total of 50 games. Liverpool have won 27 meetings, while Fulham have won ten times. 13 other games ended in a draw. The last time the two teams faced each other was in May. At that time the Reds narrowly won 1-0.
FC Fulham, on the other hand, was able to win on the last matchday: On Monday the guests celebrated a 3-2 home win against Wolves. With the three points, Fulham moved up to 14th place in the table, where Fulham was currently able to increase the gap to the relegation zone with 15 points.
After the clear 4-0 win in the Europa League against LASK, Liverpool FC would also like to win in the Premier League. The Reds are currently in third place in the table with 28 points – five points behind leaders Arsenal. Last weekend LFC played a draw against Manchester City (1:1).
Hello and welcome to the 14th matchday of the Premier League! This Sunday afternoon Liverpool FC will face Fulham FC. The game at Anfield Stadium in Liverpool kicks off at 3:00 p.m.
