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

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

"There's only one real assessment that counts and that's mine". We have 27 points, conceded five goals, done a lot of good things.

Fulham will have to be especially wary of last season's top scorer Salah is averaging a goal or an assist every 66 minutes against newly promoted teams.

The standard top English teams are compared to now is that of Manchester City since Pep Guardiola's team's record-breaking Premier League points haul last season.

And their imperious home form has shown no signs of relenting this campaign.

Jokanovic's side started with some promise, beating Burnley 4-2 and drawing with Brighton and Watford, but they are on a five-match losing run in the Premier League by an aggregate 16-3.

I'm clutching at straws, but hopefully, these factors will work in our favour and we will come away with a shock 1-1 draw.

How do you expect Fulham to line up at Anfield?

Henderson's return after almost a month out with a hamstring injury is particularly timely following two below-par performances from Jurgen Klopp's midfield.

His recent performances have not been up to the expected high standard and he was substituted at half-time during Liverpool's 2-0 defeat to Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday night.

Jordan Henderson, who has missed the last four games with a hamstring injury, is fit again, along with Naby Keita.




'I'd love to say Hendo would have changed the whole game against Red Star but the whole game was odd.

"This is a really odd situation for Fulham, I can really imagine how they feel".

"We have to defend them". The end product, the finishing was maybe not so good often enough but they've scored goals. Most of the time they struggle against the smaller teams and they are, for me, the most important games.

"We have only had two games when the performances level dropped", stated Klopp ahead of his side's game against Fulham at Anfield on Sunday.

'He has qualities like Joe [Gomez] has, like Dejan [Lovren] has, like Joel [Matip] has, so that is really good for us.

"I give the people time for adaptation and for making step forward, now it is time for them to understand that we do not have time for waiting for some miracle".

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

With the weight of 19 Premier League teams upon him, Fulham's Slavisa Jokanovic channeled his inner-Steven Gerrard for this weekend's pre-match press conference.

The Cottagers have conceded 29 goals during that time - to share an unwanted Premier League record with Southampton from 2012-13 - and are now on a run of five straight defeats.
