Preview: With the FA Cup final on Saturday dominating the thoughts at Anfield, Liverpool look to gain some valuable Premier League points against Fulham on Tuesday.
Liverpool come into the match on the back of a 3-0 win over Norwich at the weekend featuring a spectacular hat-trick from Luis Suarez. But the Reds are still languishing in eighth place after a mediocre league campaign.
Hopes of the Champions League have long since disappeared over the Anfield horizon, but Liverpool cannot afford to completely switch off with three games still remaining. Chief among Kenny Dalglish side's targets must surely be to finish ahead of local rivals Everton. The Toffees currently sit one spot and two points ahead in the standings.
The visitors to Anfield on Tuesday, Fulham, lie just one spot behind Liverpool and could go level on points with a win.
It has been a fairly impressive first season for Martin Jol at Craven Cottage. But with just three points separating Fulham in ninth with Stoke in 14th, the Dutchman will be eager that his side don't switch off in the final games of the season as they look to achieve a top-half finish.
A 4-0 defeat to Everton at the weekend suggested that more than a few Fulham players are already thinking of their summer holidays.
Team News: With the FA Cup final against Chelsea in mind, Dalglish is likely to rotate his side against Fulham. In light of his recent injury record, Steven Gerrard is likely to be rested. Andy Carroll should return alongside Suarez after recovering from a groin injury.
Martin Jol was missing from the sidelines against Everton with a chest infection, but will be back against Liverpool. Steven Kelly remains a doubt with a wrist injury. Influential midfielder Danny Murphy could return to the starting lineup after missing out on the defeat at Goodison Park.
Liverpool (probable): Reina, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Enrique, Kuyt, Henderson, Spearing, Maxi Rodriguez, Suarez, Carroll.
Fulham (probable) Schwarzer, Hughes, Senderos, Hangeland, Riise, Duff, Diarra, Murphy, Dempsey, Dembele, Pogrebnyak.
Prediction: Liverpool are sure to have their minds on Wembley on Tuesday night, despite the motivation to finish above Everton. While, returning to the dugout, Martin Jol will be looking to get a reaction from his players following Saturday's poor performance. This could well be an uninspiring draw,
