Liverpool might decide to make five adjustments when facing Fulham after receiving requests from Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold.



Liverpool is set to make significant changes to their lineup for the upcoming match against Fulham. Manager Jürgen Klopp is faced with crucial decisions as his team enters a pivotal week in the Premier League.


As Klopp’s final season in charge reaches its climax, Liverpool’s focus narrows down to one trophy. With no room for error, the Reds cannot afford to drop any more points in the league.


The team is scheduled to play three consecutive away games, starting with the match against Fulham on Sunday. Following that, they will return to Merseyside for the highly anticipated derby against Everton, before heading back to London to face West Ham.


After their hopes of progressing in the Europa League were shattered by Atalanta, Liverpool’s sole remaining chance of silverware lies in the Premier League. With only six games left in the season, Klopp will need to carefully consider his options and make crucial decisions regarding his team.


The Liverpool manager has a nearly complete squad to choose from for tomorrow’s match against Fulham, with only four players unavailable. After fielding a strong team in Italy on Thursday, it will be intriguing to see if any changes are made to the lineup tomorrow.


Trent Alexander-Arnold, who was substituted in the second half in Bergamo, should be fit to start again. However, his playing time may need to be carefully managed over the next week as he has recently returned from injury. As a result, Joe Gomez could be considered as an alternative.


A similar situation applies to Ibrahima Konaté. Considering his injury history, it might be wise to rest the French international for the derby match, allowing Jarell Quansah to potentially partner with Virgil van Dijk.


In terms of midfield, Jurgen Klopp faces some decisions. Alexis Mac Allister may benefit from some rest during the upcoming week, despite his impressive performances for Liverpool.


Dominik Szoboszlai, on the other hand, has encountered some difficulties finding his rhythm. This has posed a challenge for Klopp, who now has to consider alternatives such as Wataru Endō, Ryan Gravenberch, and Harvey Elliott.


Liverpool’s goal drought from open play.


Liverpool’s front three has been misfiring, causing a headache for Klopp. The team has gone five games without scoring a goal from open play, highlighting their recent wastefulness in front of the net.


Klopp’s management of Mohamed Salah’s minutes and potential rest.


Klopp is still carefully managing Mohamed Salah’s playing time since his return from injury. With Salah yet to regain his form, there is a possibility that he may be given a rare rest tomorrow. Cody Gakpo’s recent improvement could secure his spot in the lineup, potentially leaving Darwin Núñez and Diogo Jota to compete for a place alongside the likes of Dutchman and Luis Díaz.
