Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic calls upon players to put in more effort

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic calls upon players to put in more effort

We have 27 points (in the Premier League), conceded five goals, done a lot of good things.

The Reds have made their finest ever start to a Premier League season - with eight wins and three draws in their opening 11 fixtures - but have lost both of their matches away from home in Europe's principal club competition.

"You will never score a goal against a team like Fulham with the quality they have only because you go in the game with the wrong attitude and think about scoring, scoring, scoring or whatever".

They have conceded at least two goals in nine of their 11 Premier League games and there seems no easy fix to their defensive issues, given the lack of summer spending on reinforcements in that area.

Michael Owen blamed Van Dijk for Liverpool going behind to Red Star on Tuesday evening. We don't want to lose football games, you always have to show a reaction, that's clear.

"I would be really an idiot - a few people think I am but not that much - if I would talk about any goal difference before that game", Klopp said.

Despite Liverpool's similarly disappointing 2-0 defeat at Red Star Belgrade, Jurgen Klopp's team will on Sunday pose a significant threat to Fulham's hopes of arresting their slide.

As a team, though, the Reds have scored just 21 in the league - 12 fewer than City. "We have to build on our situation, we have to get better, to get more confidence out of the season".

Jordan Henderson, who has missed the last four games with a hamstring injury, is fit again, along with Naby Keita. We need to be more motivated and be ready for a fight, be ready for battle.

"My people will be available for the fight and make our supporters proud".

'If we are confused, scared and play like kids, it's not easy.

Mohamed Salah's awesome goal contributions last time have raised the expectations so high that 8 Premier League goal contributions (5 scored, 3 assisted) in just 11 games seems to be less.

Liverpool have won their last four Premier League matches against Fulham, though this is their first league meeting since February 2014. For us it is not too important what happened a year ago but for the people, and because of the squad and the signings, we have to use that and not the other way around.

Coming into the weekend, Fulham are one of just three teams yet to keep a clean sheet in English league football this season (along with Macclesfield and Sheffield Wednesday).

"It feels like this season can only be a success if you become champions".

For Liverpool in the Premier League, Mohamed Salah is averaging a goal or assist every 66 minutes against newly promoted teams (4 goals, 5 assists in 592 minutes).
