Liverpool still heading in the right direction - Klopp

Rafa Benitez wants the January transfer window to open early

The comparison with a year ago, the free-flowing football in a few games, and Man City, Chelsea and few others play a very good season.

Fulham failed to test Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lössl during their 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Terriers, but will be looking to Aleksandar Mitrovic and André Schürrle for inspiration in front of goal.

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita and Joe Gomez are all available after minor injury setbacks.

Fulham head to Anfield on Sunday having slid to the foot of the table after a miserable run of five consecutive defeats. "We have to build on our situation, we have to get better, to get more confidence out of the season".

The Reds suffered a 2-0 loss at Champions League rivals Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday night but focus now shifts to domestic duties and a home tie against the side bottom of the table.

'It's a zonal system in many ways but then you've got a couple of blockers around the penalty spot and then [Milan] Pavkov gets in-between [Daniel] Sturridge and Van Dijk really.

We can look at what is an embarrassing result by Liverpool's standards, and hope they use it as a much-needed wake-up call, without going over the top with our criticism, and while still remaining positive about the team's chances.

'I'd love to say Hendo would have changed the whole game against Red Star but the whole game was odd. He made four changes from the team that beat Red Star 4-0 at home - not all by choice - and some of the second-string players did not perform well.

"Liverpool's performances of late have not been as fluid as they were last season". Saying that in a week when we lost an away game at Red Star Belgrade doesn't sound really good in most people's ears but it is still like this and now we play Premier League.

"Liverpool are a risky team to play against, and there's no better front-three in the country at nicking possession, and indeed the midfield three behind them".

"We need to be more motivated and be ready for a fight, be ready for battle, don't give up and in our plans there exists a way to win the points".

'If we are confused, scared and play like kids, it's not easy.

"So many times I clean the dressing room and find the players who have the ambition to work, who have the ambition to compete", Jokanovic said. "The season so far, points-wise, the Premier League season, is really successful".

Fulham have taken one point from their last 18 Premier League games against the "big six" sides (W0 D1 L17), losing all three games this season by an aggregate score of 2-11.

The 28-year-old is back in contention for the Sunday's Premier League clash with Fulham.

We're now knee deep in the 2018/19 season, and yet - astonishingly - no Premier League manager has yet to leave his post. In the Premier League, that class has shone through four assists for Fulham.
