Predicted Liverpool XI vs. Fulham – Jordan Henderson set for return

Sports Mole looks at how unbeaten Liverpool could line up against bottom-of-the-table Fulham this weekend, including a return for captain Jordan Henderson.

Liverpool will be looking to extend their unbeaten Premier League start to 12 matches on Sunday when they welcome Fulham to Anfield.

The Reds go into the game off the back of a shock defeat to Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League on Tuesday, and Jurgen Klopp has challenged his side to produce a response to that result.

Klopp also warned people not to expect an easy game despite Fulham’s current predicament, which finds them bottom of the Premier League table following an eight-match winless run including defeats in each of their last five.

Doubtful: None

There had been doubts over a number of players in the buildup to this match, but Klopp insists that he has no new injury concerns – meaning that Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita, Nathaniel Clyne, Dejan Lovren, Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold are all fit to feature.

Henderson has missed the last four matches but should be restored straight into the starting lineup, and Klopp has options alongside his captain which once again including Keita – absent for the last five games with a similar injury.

James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum have been the preferred pairing so far and could retain their places, although they look among the more vulnerable players should Klopp decide to shake things up after the defeat in Belgrade.

Lovren’s return to fitness could also see him return to the fold, putting Gomez out wide in place of Alexander-Arnold, who was taken off at half time in midweek.

Roberto Firmino was brought on at the interval against Red Star and is expected to return in place of Daniel Sturridge, who is set to drop back to the bench alongside Xherdan Shaqiri, Adam Lallana and Fabinho.
