Liverpool – Fulham: Liverpool hopes its Premier League winless run will stop at seven with a visit from desperate Fulham at Anfield on Sunday (start time 9am ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
Jurgen Klopp’s Premier League champions are a shocking 3W-3D-7L since Boxing Day, taking just 1.0 point-per-game, worse than their 18th-place visitors Fulham in that same span (2W-7D-4L).

Fulham is three points back of safety, chasing Newcastle and Brighton, while Liverpool’s task of making the top four took a big hit with a Thursday loss to Chelsea at Anfield.
The Reds are four points back of fourth and the fifth- and sixth-place teams have matches-in-hand.
Jordan Henderson, Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, and Joe Gomez are out, while Caoimhin Kelleher is still recovering from a knock. Fabinho and Diogo Jota returned to the Reds this weekend.
Fulham is still without Tom Cairney and waiting on Marek Rodak.

Fulham is defending so much better since their early-season woes and Liverpool is coming off its worst xG day of the season, but it seems like the Cottagers are due for a setback and the Reds for an explosion. Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Co. surely cannot be this poor for much longer. Liverpool 3-1 Fulham.
