A fixture of great importance as Fulham is one team to beat and see as a possible win, especially at home. Under the former Everton, Watford and Hull manager Marco Silva you have seen a more powerful team able to compete, as Fulham’s previous short returns to the top flight has been difficult relegation struggles.
Aleksandar Mitrovic is of course an important player, but there are other names that this season has showed top form and of course surprised to see The Cottagers as high as 7th in the table, in front of local rival Chelsea.
Brendan Rodgers must take the positives out of the game vs. Liverpool, because playing without James Maddison makes a huge difference in balance and creative options, of course great to see Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall taking further steps towards becoming a complete player at this level, but still not able to fill that gap completely.
Leicester will be without Maddison also for this fixture, but hopefully Brendan Rodgers will field a team capable of making it possible to grab all three points.

Did You Know? Gus Mears, a businessman who owned a football field in London, met Henry Norris, the chairman of Fulham, in 1904 and offered his football ground for Fulham. Norris declined the offer and made the decision to stay at Craven Cottage. Gus Mears chose to build his own football club rather than rent his field after Norris’ refusal. In 1905, Mears set the foundation of Chelsea which became one of the biggest football teams in the world. We might say that Henry Norris indirectly contributed to the founding of Chelsea.
