Liverpool Boss Hodgson faces old club Fulham

Liverpool’s Premier League season continues on Saturday evening, as Fulham travel to Anfield; a ground where they have never recorded a victory.

Boss Roy Hodgson will welcome the arrival of the club he took to a Europa League final, before taking over the vacant managerial role at Liverpool this summer. His up-and-down debut season has taken yet another dip this week; his team’s loss last weekend to Newcastle did little to alleviate the weight of expectations, whilst a pre-match apology for misleading fans regarding his team selection for the midweek Europa League match was not good enough for the devoted home support.

Hodgson’s team selection for this game may appease the Liverpool fans for now; captain Steven Gerrard is set to return to action after a month’s absence with a hamstring injury, and should be joined by strikers David N’Gog, and Fernando Torres, both of whom were rested in midweek.

A key asset in the Liverpool squad is their attacking full-backs Glen Johnson and Paul Konchesky; both players have the ability to support Liverpool’s attacking play with deep crosses and overlapping runs, which may trouble Fulham’s own full-backs.

The London club, now managed my Welshman Mark Hughes, head into the weekend’s fixtures sitting just above the relegation zone, but much like his opposing manager for Saturday’s fixture, Hughes insists he does not fear being sacked.

His London side are still suffering from injuries: Phillippe Senderos and Bobby Zamora are long-term casualties, whilst forward Moussa Dembele has travelled to his home country of Belgium to seek further treatment on an ankle problem.

Hughes does however, have a formidable centre-back pairing in Aaron Hughes and Brede Hangeland; the pairing have played many games together over the last three seasons, and their form over that period of time is one of the main reasons why Fulham have achieved so much.

The odds prior to kick-off heavily favour the home side; a 1-0 home win is on offer at 9/2, whilst a 2-1 win is available at 15/2. Spanish International Torres is priced at 3/1 to get the first goal of the match, is 4/1 to score at any time. Should Fulham upset all the odds and pour further misery on their former boss, you can find odds of 33/1 for a 2-0 away win.

Bet Highlight

Odds of 16/1 would bring a great return should Captain Steven Gerrard to come off the bench and grab a last-minute winner.

Premier League 09/10:

Liverpool 0-0 Fulham
Fulham 3-1 Liverpool
