KLOPP’S SELECTION DILEMMA AHEAD OF FULHAM CLASH

Liverpool is gearing up to maintain its winning streak over the festive period as they prepare to face Fulham in the upcoming Premier League match on Sunday.

Fresh off a dominant 4-0 victory against LASK on Thursday, Jurgen Klopp faces several selection challenges with a busy schedule ahead. Despite some key players nursing injuries, Klopp anticipates a strong performance from his team, and today we will attempt to predict the starting lineup for Sunday.

DEFENSIVE SETUP

Following a notable improvement in the midweek game, Caoimhin Kelleher is expected to continue as the goalkeeper, stepping in for the absent Alisson Becker, who is likely to be sidelined until Christmas.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is set to return at right-back, eager to maintain his outstanding recent form. The defensive duo of Virgil Van Dijk and Joel Matip, both in excellent form in recent weeks, is expected to provide stability to the backline.

Matip’s remarkable improvement has kept Ibou Konate out of the starting lineup, showcasing the tough competition for defensive spots.”

Liverpool Team Update: Projected Starting XI Against Fulham as Jurgen Klopp Brings Back ‘Crucial’ Player

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp can restore his first-choice starting 11 to face Fulham after resting several key stars for the midweek Europa League victory over LASK. Klopp’s biggest dilemma will be whether to use the ‘super important’ Darwin Nunez or continue with Cody Gakpo, who struck twice in Europe on Thursday. Here is how Express Sport thinks Liverpool could line up at Anfield.

Goalkeeper: Kelleher

Alisson Becker’s injury is set to hand Caoimhin Kelleher a rare Premier League start. The Irishman has made only five appearances in the top-flight, instead making his name in the domestic cup competitions.

Kelleher can give Klopp a headache with a good performance against Fulham.

Defenders: Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Gomez

Andy Robertson’s injury will likely give Gomez a chance to impress at left-back. Kostas Tsimikas struggled against Manchester City last weekend – while Gomez performed well against LASK.

Virgil van Dijk’s inclusion will be one of six changes made to the rotated team that played on Thursday. Konate and Gomez could be the only defenders that keep their places.
