Roy Set To Face His Old Fulham Side
Any more of this face rubbing and i'm gonna have to go Phantom Of The Opera-stylee...
Fulham fans will probably be quite pleased to see Roy Hodgson tomorrow when they make the trip to Anfield. Mark Hughes hasn't exactly got them off to a good start and Roy is still a well respected figure down South. Of course, we all know the reason behind this... Because Roy is a Fulham level Manager. However i still wouldn't fancy a swap deal for Hughesy would you??
For Liverpool some perhaps positive news in the hope that Captain Steven Gerrard will be ready to start against Fulham tomorrow. Spearing, Carragher and Agger however are still out and i'm getting more and more concerned with Agger's case, i just don't believe what they're telling us. After reading those comments in the Danish press, i just can't get the thought that something more serious is wrong out of my head.
Fulham have injuries to Senderos, Zamora, Stoor, Halliche, Dembele and Briggs. However most of those players are not regular first team starters. Danny Murphy will make yet another return to Anfield tomorrow and the midfielder is sure to get a warm welcome from Anfield.
Last year at Craven Cottage Fulham gave Liverpool a fright on Halloween when two of our players also saw Red. Their second fixture at Anfield though ended in a solemn 0-0.
A massive positive for Liverpool however is that Fulham have never won at Anfield. This also throws up a horrible flip side though, if Liverpool were to lose tomorrow, there is simply no excuse.
***Update*** Match postponed due to heavy snowfall.
