EPL: Fulham v Liverpool; Craven Cottage, 9 May 2011. KO: 8pm BST

Fulham have nothing to play for whilst we continue the hunt for a place in Europe next season. A point would put us back above Spurs and into 5th, on goal difference, but with Spurs to be played at home next weekend, whilst they also travel to Man City tomorrow, a win for us this evening will put even more pressure on Spurs to get a result against City – whom we could also still catch, although a win from any of their remaining games would put them beyond us.

Fulham have Damien Duff out injured, and Clint Dempsey may return for them. We, however, have no new issues following our recent 3-0 win v Newcastle, and perhaps Andy Carroll may be fit to start this time.

Carra would be playing game No 666 for us, which would make him the 2nd in the list of most appearances, after the legendary winger, Ian Callaghan. Another 192 games would do it for Carra…

Also,  if Kyrgiakos plays, it will be game no 50 in a red shirt with a Liver bird, for him. Only another 808 to go, Sotirios…

I can’t see us losing this, as Fulham may be a dogged team to beat, they were a little fortunate to be playing us in a bad spell in 2009, when they won 3-1, as well as having Lee Mason as ref – who is back as ref for this one, despite being demoted for his performance in that game, where he sent two LFC players off.

A draw will be ok, but a win is what we want, and if we get going as we have done of late, we could win this comfortably. We shall see.
