Liverpool are on the second position in the Premier League; Fulham are on the second place from the bottom. It’s obvious which team is the favorite in Sunday’s match, despite the fact that it’s played at Fulham’s turf, the Craven Cottage stadium. Unfortunately, putting money on Liverpool won’t bring you a big profit, which is why you may wish to take a look at some other options. If so, read our Fulham vs Liverpool prediction and betting tips!
They’re 13 points away from safety and there are 8 rounds left to be played in the Premier League this season. And in those 8 rounds, Fulham will face such big teams as Liverpool and Manchester City. It seems that everyone, including fiercest Fulham supporters, knows that they’re gonna get relegated back to the Championship.
Their players know this too, but this doesn’t mean they’re gonna raise a white flag. On the contrary, they now have a motivation to showcase their talents to other Premier League clubs who might decide to buy their contracts once Fulham drops to the second tier.
Players like Sessegnon, Mitrovic, Babel, and Seri do not look too thrilled about the prospect of playing in the Championship. Instead, they’ll probably look to move someplace else in summer. And now is the right time to show everyone they deserve to play in the elite English league.
The Reds need to win this match if they wish to stay in the competition for the Premier League title. Manchester City now have 1 point more than them, so dropping additional points could mean saying goodbye to their title dreams. Of course, the pressure could get to them, but it seems that they know how to handle it.
Liverpool have shown that they can perform at their best when it’s needed. Last week, they beat Bayern Munich in Germany, getting themselves a place in the quarterfinal of the Champions League. In the quarterfinal, they’re gonna play against Porto, so their chances of getting to the semifinal look pretty decent.
But, those games are played in a couple of weeks. Right now, Liverpool need to focus on the Premier League, where they played a draw on two occasions in four previous rounds. To give them some slack, they did play against Man United and Everton in those matches. But, when faced against weaker opponents, that is, those teams from near the bottom of the Premier League table, they’ve always been sensational.
And they’ve been particularly good when playing against Fulham. Liverpool have won in 5 previous duels between the two, scoring at least two goals in each of those matches. Considering how impressive their attack has been lately, a similar scenario will probably happen on Sunday as well.

Fulham vs Liverpool Prediction
Liverpool will win this, I have no doubt about that. The only question here is how many goals are we going to see. The Reds are in a goal-scoring mood and Fulham are the team with the leakiest defense in the Premier League. So, obviously, we should see a lot of goals in Sergio Rico’s net.
