Tip: Liverpool win to nil
Units: 1/5
Odds: +110

Fulham are doomed and they are merely playing for pride between now and the remainder of the season, with the Cottagers having been cut adrift in recent weeks to the extent where some bookmakers are no longer laying bets on whether the London side will go down.

Scott Parker has been hired to restore some pride and there was plenty to like about the team’s performance when losing 2-1 at home to Chelsea, with Kepa called into action on several occasions although the same old defensive frailties reared their ugly head.

We should see the defence creak against a Liverpool side who can ill-afford to drop any further points should Jurgen Klopp’s side harbour a desire to land the Premier League title, with the manager likely to send his team off on the front foot after failing to score in a couple of recent away matches.

Liverpool struggled to break down an injury-hit Manchester United team before another goalless draw occurred at Goodison Park, although they will surely have more joy against a team who have the worst defence in the Premier League.

It should also be noted that only eight goals have been conceded in fifteen Liverpool away games, with Virgil van Dijk continuing to be a colossus in central defence and he should be able to snuff out the lively threat of Aleksandar Mitrovic. 

Indeed, the Reds have had no issues shutting out opponents for the majority of the season and there are strangely more question marks with regard to finding the net in recent weeks, with Mohamed Salah having gone off the boil and Roberto Firmino’s form not quite being up to scratch.

We’re happy to back Liverpool to win without conceding considering there is a massive gulf between their price about a victory and the former odds.
