Potential lineups / game pattern
With Lucas missing, I'm expecting a more open Liverpool for the rest of the season with Gerrard partnering Adam in the centre. Gerrard unlikely to be fit tomorrow and that could see a recall for Jordan Henderson with Downing, Kuyt, Maxi, Carroll and an in form Bellamy fighting for 3 attacking positions alongside Suarez. Look for Liverpool to hit Fulham on the break if they decide to go with pace. I have a theory on Maxi Rodriguez that he excels on small pitches, especially away from home and look for him to make late runs into the box if he starts. Liverpool old boy Danny Murphy will pull the strings for Fulham as usual and they will offer plenty of threat of their own with pace in attacking areas. They may focus their attack down the wings when Enrique and Johnson push forward for Liverpool.
