Despite a win on Thursday in Bergamo, Italy over Atalanta, Liverpool still crashed out of the Europa League at the Quarterfinal stage via a 3-1 aggregate.

They now will put all of their focus into the Premier League and tracking down Manchester City who currently holds a two point edge in the standings. This mission begins on Sunday as the Reds will pay a visit to Fulham.

There should be a near full strength lineup for Jurgen Klopp as he tries to build on the slight momentum from their 1-0 win in Italy.

While it was another night of missed chances, one would expect Liverpool to secure all three points in this one as they have had little trouble with Fulham in the last decade, losing only once in all competitions.

Let's take a look how the Reds could lineup for this big match.

Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jarell Quansah, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson

Midfielders: Harvey Elliott, Wataru Endo, Dominik Szoboszlai

Forwards: Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez

Probable Subs: Luis Diaz, Curtis Jones, Joe Gomez, Diogo Jota, Alexis Mac Allister

It seems that Quansah has almost been forgotten since his nightmare at Old Trafford as Ibrahima Konate has been the preferred partner for van Dijk. However, Konate has not played well recently and he could do with a reset day.

It's right back into the starting lineup for Alexander-Arnold following 70+ minutes during Thursday's win, his first start in two months.

Klopp himself has stated that Mac Allister has been overused in the last three weeks which is why I think he gets displaced for this one. Endo makes a return after a full night off during the week, so hopefully he can regain the form we saw from him a month ago.

Gakpo was brilliant once again on Thursday as he created multiple chances for his side. It will be either the Dutchman or Jota vying for the center forward role on Sunday.

If Jota is cleared to go the full distance, I would be alright with him getting the nod as well. Diaz, for all of his efforts and tenacity, needs to come off the bench as he has not been able to produce the final numbers you'd like to see from someone who is always in a dangerous spot.

Nunez gets restored following a brief cameo from the bench in the Atalanta win as his pace and power have proven difficult for the Cottagers to handle in the past.
