Michael Owen is backing Liverpool FC to ease to a comfortable win against Fulham at Anfield on Sunday lunchtime.

The Merseyside outfit will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing Champions League fixture after a 2-0 loss to Red Star Belgrade in Serbia on Tuesday night.

Liverpool FC have lost twice in the Champions League in the current campaign following defeats by Napoli and Red Star Belgrade to leave them in a precarious position with two group games left to play.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have won eight times and have drawn three games in the Premier League this season to challenge leaders Manchester City.

The Reds have only dropped points in stalemates with direct rivals Arsenal, Chelsea FC and Manchester City in the English top flight this term.

Liverpool FC have made light work of their lesser opponents this season, including a 4-1 win over promoted side Cardiff City at Anfield last month.

Fulham are sitting at the bottom of the Premier League table after conceding 29 times in 11 games since their promotion to the English top flight.

Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is backing Liverpool FC to win by at least two goals against Fulham at Anfield on Sunday.

“Fulham have only scored four times in their last 17 visits to Anfield whilst Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 26 home Premier League games,” Owen told BetVictor.

“You could argue that both sides – Liverpool in Belgrade and Fulham at Huddersfield – were disappointing earlier in the week, but I fully expect the Reds to bounce back and go into the last international break of the year with an emphatic win.

“The Cottagers have yet to keep a clean sheet this season and have a poor record against the ‘big six’ with just one point from their last 18 games against these clubs. I would be surprised if they improved on that moderate record against a wounded Liverpool.”

Liverpool FC will be looking to make a statement against Fulham after securing three victories from their last nine games in all competitions.

Klopp’s side are in third place in the Premier League table and two points adrift of current champions Manchester City.

While the Reds haven’t been firing in attack this season after a return of 21 goals in 11 games, Klopp’s defence have only conceded five times.

The Merseyside outfit have won their last 26 Premier League games at Anfield ahead of the visit of promoted side Fulham on Sunday.
