Liverpool vs Fulham live score, updates, highlights, lineups, and result from Premier League clash

ANFIELD, LIVERPOOL — Liverpool strengthened their credentials as Premier League title challengers with a creditable 1-1 draw at Manchester City last time out.

But if they are to ensure that result constitutes a ‘good point’, they must keep up their remarkable home form by beating Fulham this weekend.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have won all 10 of their games at Anfield so far this season, and an 11th victory would help ensure they keep pace with Arsenal and City at the summit. The Reds began the day a point behind City and five behind the Gunners, although Mikel Arteta’s side had played a game more.

Cottagers manager Marco Silva has avoided defeat in four of his seven meetings with Klopp so far, suggesting that this could be a testing afternoon for the hosts.

The Sporting News is following the match live and providing updates and highlights below.

Liverpool vs Fulham live updates, highlights, commentary

14th min: Incredibly, Leno is going to carry on. He’s up again and sporting a huge bandage on his head. 

11th min: Leno is still down receiving treatment after that non-goal and for good reason: replays show he caught a knee to the head from Diaz in the melee.

Fulham are surely going to have to change their goalkeeper here.

8th min: Liverpool have the ball in the net but it’s not going to count.

It’s Mohamed Salah who pokes in after Luis Diaz challenges following a spill from a Dominik Szoboszlai shot from the edge of the box.

However, Diaz has clearly strayed offside in the initial phase of play and the assistant rightly flags.

3rd min: Liverpool get the first shot of the match away, Luis Diaz hitting one on the turn after the ball breaks fortuitously to him.

However, it’s straight down Bernd Leno’s throat and he holds on well.

KICKOFF: Fulham get us under way.

5 mins to kickoff: Here come the players at a cold but now also rain-soaked Anfield. If any Liverpool players are still feeling the effects of playing on Thursday, they’ll need to quickly put that fatigue to the back of their mind here.

20 mins to kickoff: Interesting to see Darwin Nunez get the nod up top today despite Cody Gakpo’s impressive performance in midweek.

The Uruguayan will be desperate to boost his chances of keeping hold of his place by ending a five-game goalless streak for Liverpool.

45 mins to kickoff: While both teams are preparing for this game, the FA Cup third round draw has been made.

Liverpool have been handed a tough trip to Arsenal, while Fulham will welcome Rotherham to Craven Cottage.

1 hr to kickoff: The team news is in! Check out how both teams line up above.

1.5 hrs to kickoff: As you can see, it’s a cold one at Anfield today.

2 hrs to kickoff: Hello and welcome to The Sporting News’ live coverage of Liverpool vs Fulham in the Premier League. The Reds received a major boost on Thursday as they secured qualification for the Europa League knockout stages as group winners with a game to spare by beating LASK 4-0 at Anfield.

Now they must cope with the potential fatigue caused by a quick turnaround as they return to league action against Fulham, who are 14th after winning a thriller 3-2 at home to Wolves on Monday.
