Monday Night Football - Fulham vs Liverpool

Hey guys what's up Jimmy here with Monday's blog on the Barclays Premier League match between Fulham and Liverpool which I promised you from yesterday.


Here was the lineup for tonight's game,


Liverpool: Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Skrtel, Flanagan, Maxi, Spearing, Lucas, Meireles, Suarez, Kuyt. Subs: Gulacsi, Cole, Kyrgiakos, Wilson, Poulsen, Shelvey, Robinson.
Fulham: Schwarzer, Baird, Hughes, Hangeland, Salcido, Davies, Murphy, Gudjohnsen, Sidwell, Dempsey, Dembele. Subs: Stockdale, Johnson, Senderos, Etuhu, Kakuta, Zamora, Greening.

Liverpool were going into this game on good form being unbeaten in 4 whereas Fulham were also going into the game on good form taking 7 points from their last 3 games. 
My prediction for this game was that it would be a difficult game for Liverpool as Fulham are notoriously good at home. But due to Liverpool's recent great turn of form I believed they could still nick a slight win, so 1-0.
However, the game proved to blow my prediction apart as it turned out to be one of the best games this season.
The game got underway and Liverpool showed dominance from the kick-off as Liverpool managed to get an early goal from Maxi Rodriguez within 32 seconds after a great run by Suarez and a miscalculation by Fulham's keeper Schwarzer 
The pressure continued and Maxi got a second goal at the 6 minute mark with some perfect build up play involving Lucas, Suarez and Johnson. 
Kuyt then added to the score to make it 3-0 with a somewhat tame effort that the keeper should have dealt with, and so the Reds went into half-time with a mighty lead.
As the second half kicked off it was clear that Fulham had came back into the game determined to put up a fight, constant pressure from Fulham soon earned them a goal at the 57th through Moussa Dembele.
Maxi Rodriguez then added a 4th to Liverpool's score-sheet in the 70th minute as he netted a great outside of the box effort into the top left corner for his hat-trick! 
Suarez finished Liverpool's goal-scoring rout as he deservedly added a 5th making it 5-1 with a beautiful effort to take it round the keeper and score.

Finally Fulham's Steve Sidwell topped off the score-sheet with a beautiful effort from outside the box equaling Maxi's 3rd.

The game ended 5-2 to Liverpool wrapping up a truly thrilling game with two outstanding performances from Luis Suarez and Maxi Rodriguez moving Liverpool up to 5th place.

Thanks for reading :) YNWA!

  17. I really thought Fulham could go on and possibly win it when they pulled one back - thinking Juve last year. And I really want Liverpool to win a title before Carragher and Gerrard retire!

  27. Liverpool being 3-0 up in under 20 minutes really killed the game for me until Zamora came on. Think Liverpool could be strong contenders for the title next season, they've been awesome since King Kenny came back
