Liverpool play host to Fulham this weekend at the start of a busy December for Jurgen Klopp’s side across multiple competitions before 2023 is out.
The Reds wrap up their Europa League group stage campaign against Union Saint-Gilloise, and face West Ham in the Carabao Cup quarterfinals, in between six Premier League matches.
A home tie against Fulham kicks off that streak of games with Klopp’s team boasting a fine Anfield record in the Premier League so far this season. Liverpool have won all six home league matches in 2023/24, scoring 17 goals and conceding just two, as the best home defensive record in the top-flight so far.

Liverpool vs Fulham lineups
Klopp will look to freshen up his team on the back of midweek Europa League duty with changes expected for the home side.
The Reds boss is ready to make minor tweaks to the team that drew 1-1 away at Manchester City last weekend with Ryan Gravenbrech tipped to start in midfield and Caoimhin Kelleher is set to replace the injured Alisson in goal.
Colombia international Luis Diaz could make his first Premier League start since the 2-0 derby win over Everton on October 21 with Joao Palhinha back from suspension for Fulham.
Below are the projected starting lineups for both teams ahead of their Premier League match at Anfield on December 3:
Liverpool starting 11
Liverpool starting lineup (4-3-3): Kelleher — Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas — Szoboszlai, Mac Allister, Gravenberch — Salah, Nunez, Diaz.
- Injured: Robertson, Thiago, Bajcetic, Jota, Alisson.
- Suspended: None
Kelleher, Gravenberch and Diaz are the three expected changes from the Manchester City game with Diogo Jota joining Alisson, Andrew Robertson, Thiago Alcantara and Stefan Bajcetic on the Reds’ injury list.
Fulham starting 11
Fulham starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Leno (GK) — Castagne, Bassey, Ream, Robsinon — Reed, Palhinha — Iwobi, Pereira, Willian — Jimenez.
- Injured: Muniz Traore, Diop.
- Suspended: None
Palhinha’s return is a key boost for Fulham and the Portugal international is likely to be the only change from the 3-2 home win over Wolves. Issa Diop and Adama Traore are still injured.
