With Fulham languishing at the very bottom of the Premier League, Klopp will be looking to use a trip to Craven Cottage to get his side back to winning ways. "It's all about a reaction from Tuesday now, but Fulham on Sunday is a tough job to do now". Liverpool have got a chance if things go wrong at City.
However, they'll be up against a resurgent Manchester United side that will be in confident mood following their stunning victory over Juventus in Turin on Wednesday night that saw them score two late goals to clinch a vital win.
Shaqiri has contributed one goal and two assists in 226 minutes of Premier League football this season. This time too, the Cottagers face an uphill task.
"The season so far, points-wise, is really successful, but it doesn't feel like that because of two reasons - the comparison with free-flowing football last season, and because City and Chelsea are playing really good this season".
Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic: "Liverpool are coming from a defeat and are hurt, we are hurt more than Liverpool and they will show some different imagination than the last game".
"We have a wonderful perspective, it's all good", he said.
Irrespective of who leads Liverpool's attack on Sunday, it would be a worrisome attack for Fulham.
Liverpool have won all eight home Premier League games under Jurgen Klopp against newly-promoted teams, scoring 25 goals and conceding just three. His first Premier League start for the Reds was in a 1-0 defeat at Swansea but since then Liverpool's overall record against teams outside the big six is W14 D3 L0 with the Dutch defender in the line-up and at home it is W9 D1 L0.
Mohamed Salah's fantastic 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's talisman from last season seems underwhelming as compared to last season, but his underlying stats are solid. After the disappointing showing in Serbia, if the Egyptian clicks into form for Liverpool, Fulham will be in for a horrid afternoon.
Liverpool should embrace the positive start they've made to 2018-19 and not dwell on the midweek disappointment in Belgrade, Jürgen Klopp has instructed.
Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita and Joe Gomez are all available after minor injury setbacks.
Klopp insists he has "no problem" with the competition and says Liverpool will continue to "go for everything".
