Confirmed - Liverpool v Fulham line-ups - Coutinho starts

Liverpool can close the gap on Arsenal to two points if they beat Fulham, kick-off from Anfield at 15:00 GMT.

Liverpool starting team: Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Cissokho, Lucas, Gerrard, Henderson, Coutinho, Suarez, Sturridge

Subs: Jones, Enrique, Alberto, Moses, Sakho, Allen, Sterling

Fulham starting team: Stekelenburg, Zverotic, Richardson, Senderos, Amorebieta, Sidwell, Parker, Kacaniklic, Dejagah, Kasami, Berbatov

Subs: Stockdale, Hughes, Karagounis, Boateng, Taarabt, Ruiz, Bent

Liverpool go into this game looking to keep the pressure up on Arsenal at the top of the Premier League.

Liverpool have a relatively decent record at home this season and Brendan Rodgers has been able to name a strong side, with a prolific partnership in attack which has scored lots of goals.

Rodgers’ men are looking for a reaction after they were soundly beaten by the Gunners last weekend.

Fulham can pull further away from the Premier League’s bottom three if they secure a shock win.

The West London side are looking to put an end to a bad run of results which has seen them lose three games on the bounce following a big win away at Crystal Palace in which they scored some terrific goals.
