Fulham travel to Liverpool ahead of tonight’s first game of their EFL Cup Semi-final, with the challenge of beating a side who have been unbeatable at Anfield across all competitions this season.
There’s no surprise to see Fulham priced as 5/1 underdogs for this first leg of the last four, but they’ll hold some hope after pushing Liverpool all the way earlier on this season.
Bobby De Cordova-Reid bagged an 80th minute goal to put the London side 3-2 up, and looking likely to become the first side to take maximum points away from Anfield.
Although two goals in two minutes from Wataru Endo and game-winner Trent Alexander-Arnold completed the turnaround, Fulham now know they can go toe-to-toe with the current league leaders.
Coming off the back of a routine FA Cup win against Rotherham in the third round, they previously handed Arsenal a 2-1 loss in the league thanks to goals from Raul Jimenez and the aforementioned De Cordova-Reid.
Some key players will be missing from Klopp’s available list tonight, with Trent Alexander-Arnold out for a number of weeks with a knee injury and Mohamed Salah away on Africa Cup of Nations duty with Egypt.
On top of the likes of Dominik Szoboszlai and Andy Robertson still carrying knocks, Wataru Endo also sits on the absent list as he represents Japan at the Asian Cup.
Liverpool showed their strength in depth as they beat Arsenal in the third round of the FA Cup in their last game. After weathering the storm of Arsenal’s first half bombardment, Liverpool were able to get on top of their opposition to win 2-0.
Confident signs for Klopp, especially as he was able to include fringe players and young prospects to see Liverpool over the line and remain in the running for the Premier League, FA Cup, Europa League, and tonight’s EFL Cup.
