The Reds play their last home game of 2012 having won just five league games at home in the calendar year. The 3-1 thrashing against Aston Villa sent shock waves across the Kop and Fulham - won for the first time at Anfield last season - are desperate to improve their current form.
Martin Jol's team have won just one game in nine league matches while Liverpool have a better record coming into this game and will be keen to get a positive result after the shock 3-1 loss to Villa.
Fulham will miss several key players as midfielder Steve Sidwell is suspended and right-back Sascha Riether picked up an injury. Playmaker Bryan Ruiz is sidelined until the new year and Mahamadou Diarra is doubtful.
*Fulham earned their first win at Anfield when the two teams met in May last season.
*Fulham have won once in nine league matches.
