“We are always confident. We are where we are on the schedule. But we are sure to play every game. There’s no denying that we’ve been playing with one of the best teams in Europe over the past 18 months. But like last week, we’re going to play the game trying to cause them problems.” .
On the crowds:
“It’s going to have an enormous impact to be fair, it’s been a long time since the stadiums are empty. For large parts of our career, players and managers play with the fans. That’s what our game really is about, the passion that our fans bring.”
“We had a long, difficult season last year and it was a tipping point about that when we were growing up and going to Wembley our fans were not there to enjoy it. We look forward to it and hope they are.”

Just one change to Fulham From last week’s loss to Manchester City with Mario Lemena to replace Harrison Reid in midfield.
Fulham (3-4-1-2): Areola, Aena, Andersen, Adaraboyo, Cordova-Reed, Angisa, Limina, Robinson, Loftus-Cheek, Lookman, Cavalliero
Submarines: Kebano, Cairney, Rudak, Ream, Reed, Brian, Camara
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alison, Alexander Arnold, Matip, Fabinho, Robertson, Henderson, Vinaldum, Jones, Salah, Firmino, Mane
Submarines: Oxlade-Chamberlain, Minamino, Origi, Phillips, Kelleher, Caen, Williams
Fulham had no fans to celebrate with when he invaded Wembley, and he won the promotion back to Premier League A few months ago, support would definitely have helped as they passed their first very difficult season in the first division. Finally, 2,000 fans will return to Craven Cottage today to watch their team against defending champion Liverpool.
There is good reason to feel hopeful after the premier Fulham victory over Leicester City at the end of November that knocked them out of the last three places, but how difficult are the matches to follow in an effort to build some momentum and improve their current precarious position. In the 17th position in the table. Manchester City were very good last week with a 2-0 win that could have been more certain, and based on the evidence of Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Wolverhampton last Sunday, that will be incredibly difficult again.
Despite the list of injuries and the many disgruntled comments by Jürgen Klopp on the schedule and VAR technology over the past month, Liverpool’s performance is developing on the field and it is clear that they intend to continue to exert maximum pressure on Tottenham at the top of the league. They’ll try to do it today with a very welcome boost from Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and Alison’s return to the team after injuries.
