Goal Scorer:

Adama Traore is the only injury worry for Fulham against Liverpool this midweek. However, they will be without Calvin Bassey, Alex Iwobi, and Fode Ballo-Toure because of their involvement in Africa Cup of Nations.

Fulham will shape up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Bernd Leno in goal. Timothy Castagne and Antonee Robinson will start as the full-backs. They will look to help out during counter-attacks and protect the central defenders. Tosin Adarabioyo will start alongside Issa Diop at the heart of the defence.

As for the midfield unit, Joao Palhinha will start alongside Harrison Reed in the double pivot. The two players will look to win the ball back for their side and break up the Liverpool attacks.

Andreas Pereira will start in the central attacking midfield role, and he will look to create goalscoring opportunities for his teammates. Willian and Bobby De Cordova-Reid will add creativity and flair from the wide areas. Finally, Raul Jimenez will lead the line for the home side.

Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Leno; Castagne, Adarabioyo, Diop, Robinson; Palhinha, Reed; Reid, Pereira, Willian; Jimenez

Liverpool have an extended injury list heading into this contest. Joel Matip, Stefan Bajcetic and Thiago Alcantara remain long-term absentees. Kostas Tsimikas and Ben Doak are unlikely to return anytime soon.

Andrew Robertson is likely to be a part of the squad along with Curtis Jones and Dominik Szoboszlai. Wataru Endo is away on international duty for the AFC Asian Cup, and Mohamed Salah is sidelined with an injury while on AFCON duty.

Liverpool will shape up in their usual 4-3-3 formation, with Caoimhin Kelleher in goal. Conor Bradley and Joe Gomez will start as the full-backs and they will look to keep things compact on the flanks and help out in the attack. Ibrahima Konate will start alongside Virgil van Dijk in the central defensive pairing.

Alexis Mac Allister will feature in the anchor role, and he will look to protect the defenders and break up opposition attacks. Curtis Jones and Ryan Gravenberch will add creativity and control to the side alongside him. Finally, Cody Gakpo is expected to lead the line for Liverpool against Fulham, with Diogo Jota and Darwin Nunez on either side of him.

Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Kelleher; Bradley, Konate, Van Dijk, Gomez; Jones, Mac Allister, Gravenberch; Jota, Gakpo, Nunez
