Klopp admitted the 2-0 Champions League defeat to Red Star Belgrade "was a rather massive knock which was not expected". "So it'll be a hard game and we have to make a good performance". His first Premier League start for the Reds was in a 1-0 defeat at Swansea but since then Liverpool's overall record against teams outside the big six is W14 D3 L0 with the Dutch defender in the line-up and at home it is W9 D1 L0. "When we lose people can go home satisfied but right now we're not offering that". For us it is not too important what happened previous year but for the people, and because of the squad and the signings, we have to use that and not the other way around.
In Liverpool's last home league game, against Cardiff, Shaqiri experienced scoring at Anfield for the first time for the Reds.
While Klopp admitted his players were below-par on Tuesday night in Serbia, he said: "A lot of things are better than at the same time past year".
Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic: "Liverpool are coming from a defeat and are hurt, we are hurt more than Liverpool and they will show some different imagination than the last game". The person who is most responsible for performances and results like Tuesday is me - this is always the case. "But we have to enjoy our football as well exactly in the moment because it was, so far, pretty successful".
Liverpool v Fulham live stream and TV coverage will be shown exclusively by BT Sport as the two teams go head-to-head in a vital Premier League clash at Anfield. Chelsea and Liverpool both play before City on Sunday so Pep Guardiola's men could find themselves down in third come kick-off so the pressure will be on to respond.
"I would really be an idiot", he said.
He said: "I would love to say that Hendo would have changed the whole (Red Star) game but I'm not really sure about it".
"This is a really odd situation for Fulham". "A few people think I am, but not that much if I would talk about goal difference before that game". However, given Liverpool's defensive record in the league (only 5 goals conceded so far), Fulham have little chance of adding a lot to Liverpool's goal conceded column. He will play a lot of football - that's the good news for him.
Indeed, Fulham's summer signings have combined to contribute several goals for the Cottagers - they have scored 11 goals and would be fifteenth in the table if the table was based on goals scored.
Henderson's return after almost a month out with a hamstring injury is particularly timely following two below-par performances from Jurgen Klopp's midfield.
