Liverpool have an immediate chance to wipe the home defeat to Aston Villa from their collective memory banks this coming weekend as they face Fulham at Anfield, with the Reds looking to bounce back into the top half.
Fulham are currently placed just one spot below the Reds in the Premier League, lying 13th, and are two points behind their hosts.
Last season the Cottagers did the double over Liverpool, winning 1-0 both home and away so the Reds will be looking to settle one or two scores during the game. Martin Skrtel's own goal was the difference at Anfield last term, though it was a much-changed side for the home team who were preparing for an FA Cup final at the time.
This time around the Reds will be looking to start as well as they did last week against Aston Villa—but actually take advantage of their attacking performance this time instead of succumbing to a poor defeat.
Here are five key battles which could shape the outcome of the match.
