The Cottagers will go into this game as the firm underdogs against Jurgen Klopp's side who will be fired up, knowing that a win will take them to the top of the standings.
Liverpool is two points clear of City, which has a game in hand in what looks to be a two-team race for the title.
However, Fulham's equaliser did arrive on 74 minutes following a mix-up between Virgil van Dijk and Alisson which allowed Babel to tap into an empty net.
Such has been the Egyptian's phenomenal impact since his arrival at Anfield in the summer of 2017, he stands on the brink of becoming the quickest player in the club's history to reach 50 Premier League strikes. Obviously beating Burnley at home was hard, as they are in a similar position to Fulham, and we fell behind there.
Liverpool completed a clean sweep of four English sides into the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a highly impressive 3-1 win at Bayern Munich on Wednesday. They deserved a goal but we deserved three points.
But they almost suffered a very costly European hangover against a Fulham side still 13 points adrift of safety.
Former Liverpool captain Jamie Carragher believes that Mohamed Salah's recent bad form has been caused by his selfishness during games. "I don't think that matters", Molby said on LFC TV after the win at Fulham, when contrasting Liverpool and Manchester City's push for the title.
Liverpool winger Sadio Mane has topped the latest Power Rankings.
"People are fighting for European spots and positions and trying to get in the top 10 and stuff".
The Reds made ground down the left, with Roberto Firmino getting to the byline, where he cut back to Mane to slot home from eight yards.
But like Alisson before him, Rico erred and Milner drove a redemptive spot-kick down the middle of the goal.
