As Liverpool prepare for Sunday afternoon’s Premier League clash with Fulham at Anfield, we crunch the numbers and look at the history between the two clubs.
Fulham’s only two victories in 36 away matches against Liverpool in all competitions have both been 1-0 wins in the Premier League in May 2012 and March 2021, while the Reds have lost just one of their last 10 league games against Fulham.
The Cottagers have scored just four goals in 16 Premier League away games against Liverpool and never more than goal in a single match. It’s the lowest goals-per-game ratio of any team to play more than 10 away games against an opponent in the Premier League.
Liverpool have won all six of their home league fixtures this season by an aggregate score of 17-2.
Since the Reds lost 1-0 to Fulham in March 2021, which was their sixth successive league defeat on home soil, they have been beaten in only one of their last 48 Premier League matches at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are three short of becoming the first club to score 5,000 goals at home in English league football.
The Reds have won 12 points from losing positions this season, the most of any top-flight side and have conceded just three second-half goals in league matches this season.
He can become only the second player to score in a club’s first seven home matches of a Premier League season, matching Alan Shearer for Blackburn in 1995/96.
