Alisson And Jones To Start, Jota Out: Liverpool’s Predicted Line Up To Take On Fulham

With manager Jurgen Klopp having confirmed that Alisson Becker should be fit to face Fulham tomorrow, Liverpool’s number one is likely to replace Caoimhin Kelleher in goal, despite the Irishman filling in ably during the Brazilian’s absence.

In defence, Joel Matip will return after being rested midweek for the draw against FC Midtjylland, while Trent Alexander-Arnold could be ready to start his first Premier League game since the 1-1 draw against Manchester City last month.

Fabinho was taken off at half time on Wednesday in order to protect his legs, so the Brazilian should be available to start, while the ever-reliable Andy Robertson is expected to take his customary position at left-back.

Klopp does have a few more options in midfield, now that both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita are back fit, but he may go with his trusted midfield trio of Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum and Curtis Jones for this one.

After Diogo Jota picked up a knock during the week, the Portuguese forward is not likely to feature tomorrow, so we may see the deadly trio of Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane start at Craven Cottage.

Liverpool’s Predicted XI To Face Fulham:

Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Fabinho, Robertson, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Jones, Salah, Firmino, Mane
