Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Fulham

Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Fulham.

Liverpool once again face a Premier League opening-day test against a newly-promoted side as they visit Craven Cottage on Sunday lunchtime to take on Fulham.

Jurgen Klopp's men once again lost out to Manchester City in the two-horse top-flight battle last season but gained a measure of revenge with a 3-1 win in the Community Shield last Saturday.

The Reds sent out a second-string side to face Strasbourg on Sunday and ultimately suffered a 3-0 defeat, and Klopp is not without his injury concerns ahead of the opening day.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with the Cottagers.
