We're bringing you our Premier League predictions for Sunday's clash between Fulham and Liverpool at Craven Cottage. The visitors can't afford any more slipups like we saw last weekend against Crystal Palace or they risk being left behind in the title race. Fulham don't have much to play for this season but could still finish in the top half which should provide Marco Silva's men with enough motivation for the points.

Player to watch – Mohamed Salah

Liverpool's 31-year-old forward has been their most consistent player this season, someone they still heavily rely on to score the majority of their goals.

Salah, who has had the best of games in the last week or so, will be hoping to get back to the form that has seen him score 17 times in the Premier League this season.

Liverpool really need their star player to perform this weekend

The Liverpool legend has scored five times in his last ten appearances which is good going for any striker but his team really needs him to put in a top performance away at Fulham where three points feel like a necessity rather than an option.
