Xherdan Shaqiri to start? – Predicted Liverpool line-up to face Fulham



James Milner scores for Liverpool against Arsenal

Liverpool need to bounce back after their poor showing in the Champions League against Red Star Belgrade.

The next game for the Reds is against Fulham at Anfield. The Cottagers aren’t doing too well themselves sitting at the bottom of the Premier League.

The Reds are a couple of points behind Manchester City, who play Manchester United on Sunday, and a win would put pressure on the Cityzens.

Liverpool have to be wary of Fulham’s threat, something we didn’t seem to consider in our loss during midweek.

Jurgen Klopp should look to play his strongest team, and here is our predicted line-up for Sunday’s game.

Predicted Liverpool XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Jurgen Klopp

Alisson Becker (GK)

The Brazilian should have done better with the second goal he conceded against Red Star and needs a clean sheet on Sunday.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB)

The youngster was replaced at half-time by Klopp against Red Star but should start against Fulham due to his attacking crosses.

Joe Gomez (CB)

Gomez was brought on in the second half in midweek and should start against the minnows.

Virgil van Dijk Liverpool

Virgil van Dijk (CB)

The Dutch defender had a decent enough game against Red Star and would want to help the Reds to all three points at the weekend.

Andy Robertson (LB)

Robertson didn’t have a great time against Red Star as we looked flat in attack. The Scot should keep his place in the side before we head to the international break.

Fabinho (CM)

The Brazilian has been in and out of the side but should get a run-out against Fulham on Sunday.

James Milner scores for Liverpool

James Milner (CM)

Milner wasn’t great in our loss in midweek but we should see the Englishman start as we look to get the three points.

Sadio Mane (LAM)

Mane was poor in the game against Red Star as he barely did anything of note after 10 minutes. The Senegalese needs a good game and hopefully, it comes on Sunday.

Roberto Firmino (CAM)

Firmino didn’t start in midweek and even introducing him in the second half didn’t help the side to score a goal.

Xherdan Shaqiri of Liverpool

Xherdan Shaqiri (RAM)

Shaqiri did not travel with the side to Serbia in midweek and should make it to the starting line-up for Liverpool in place of Adam Lallana.

Mohamed Salah (ST)

The Egyptian came close to scoring against Red Star as he hit the post and hopefully, he bags a goal against the Cottagers at Anfield on Sunday.

Latest Liverpool transfer news: Mane and Keita want Werner at Anfield

Timo Werner is one of the hottest properties in German football and Liverpool have been linked with the forward, according to the Daily Star.

The report claims that we face competition from Manchester United and Bayern Munich for the 22-year-old forward. Naby Keita joined the Reds from RB Leipzig and claimed he would try his best to bring Werner to Anfield (h/t Daily Star):

“We played very well together in Leipzig, and he was one of my best friends there. It’s clear: If he’ll be on the move, I ask Timo to join us here at Liverpool.”

Sadio Mane also wanted the striker to join the Reds and told Bild (h/t Daily Star):

“I’d advise him to join Liverpool. I like his style of play. Very forceful, good finish, always giving it 100 per cent. If he wants to join us, we’d welcome him to our team.”

The report adds that Werner is the No.1 target for the Reds, and it will be interesting to see how things progress in the summer.

Liverpool have 0ne of the best attacks in the world

Liverpool play with three of the best attackers in world football with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino partnering Mane. The trio have plundered several goals since last season, but we could do with more attacking options.

Dominic Solanke was sold to Bournemouth in the winter window, and the report adds that Daniel Sturridge could leave the Reds at the end of the season.

That would leave us with just Divock Origi as a senior forward in the side, and it would be a major surprise if we don’t sign some players in the summer.

The Metro (h/t Mirror) reports that Chelsea have submitted a £39million bid for Liverpool target Luka Jovic. The 21-year-old Serbian has been in excellent form for Eintracht Frankfurt this season and has found the back of the net 19 times from 27 appearances.

The report also adds that Chelsea have made the 21-year-old a priority for the summer despite signing Gonzalo Higuain on loan and Christian Pulisic for next season.

Liverpool need more attacking options

The Reds have one of the best forward lines in football, however, the report claims that Jurgen Klopp will be looking for reinforcements in the summer window.

Daniel Sturridge’s contract at Anfield comes to an end in the summer while Divock Origi hasn’t been receiving regular time on the field.

The Reds also sold Dominic Solanke to Bournemouth in the winter window with Nathaniel Clyne joining the forward on loan at the Cherries.

German football expert believes Klopp will extend Anfield stay even if he fails to land a trophy this season

Latest Liverpool news: Raphael Honigstein believes Jurgen Klopp will extend stay at Liverpool

German football expert Raphael Honigstein believes Jurgen Klopp will extend his stay at Anfield beyond 2022. The manager signed a new deal with Liverpool in 2016 which keeps him at the club until 2022, but the expert claims that Klopp will sign a new deal even if he fails to land a trophy.

Honigstein is also the author of “Bring the Noise: The Jurgen Klopp story” and said (h/t Daily Star)

“Klopp is totally happy at Liverpool and the club is totally happy with him. I think that he will renew his contract beyond 2022.

“Regardless of whether [Liverpool] become champions or Champions League winners, he will extend to 99.9 per cent.”

The Daily Star adds that Klopp had been linked with a move to Bayern Munich and the Bundesliga giants are still open to signing the Liverpool manager.

Bayern still an option for Klopp

Honigstein did warn that Klopp could sign for the Bundesliga powerhouses later in his career:

“He is flexible and ambitious enough to think about this opportunity if there is another opportunity.”

Klopp has done an excellent job for the Reds even though he hasn’t picked up a trophy at Anfield. The Reds are in a strong position to win the league title and face Bayern Munich in the round of 16 in the Champions League.

Liverpool are possibly playing their best football in the Premier League era, and the next logical step is winning a trophy under the manager.
