The referee blows his whistle for the final time this afternoon, and it's Liverpool who emerge victorious from this one as Daniel Sturridge proves the differnce on the day as his hat-trick leads the Reds to a 3-1 victory. The result means little in terms of the league standings, though, with Everton's win at West Ham leaving the Toffees five points clear of their Merseyside rivals with just one match remaining this season, meaning Liverpool are destined to finish below their neighbours for the second successive season. Fulham, meanwhile, could find themselves in a world of trouble heading into the last game of the campaign next weekend, depending what happens in Wigan's clash against Arsenal on Tuesday, with a win for the Latics set to leave them just two points behind the Cottagers. Well, I hope you've enjoyed it! I'm Ryan Gordon wishing you a great rest of your weekend. Cheers all!
Final change of the game now, with Philippe Coutinho given a rest as he is replaced by Conor Coady.
GOAL! Fulham 1-3 Liverpool! Daniel Sturridge!
Third and final change for Fulham now as Giorgos Karagounis makes way for former Liverpool full-back John Arne Riise, who receives a warm welcome from the travelling fans, who watched him play for seven years at Anfield before leaving in 2008.
Another change for the visitors now, with Jonjo Shelvey making way for Fabio Borini.
A change for Fulham now as Alex Kacaniklic, who has worked his socks off, is brought off for Mladen Petric.
GOAL! Fulham 1-2 Liverpool! Daniel Sturridge!
We'll have the first yellow card of the afternoon, with Glen Johnson going into the book for a very nasty, studs-up tackle on Eyong Enoh, and the England international is lucky to still be on the field as that was a very dangerous challenge indeed.
As is Steven Michael Brassell, who emails in: Again Ryan, not sure we are coping with the set pieces that Fulham are threatening Liverpool with, on such a small pitch. Hopefully at half-time Brendan will bring on a few subs with the likes of Enrique & Hermie on the bench who can cause real threat to anyone's defence! Final score 2-1 Liverpool
Chris Gurrell is back, and says: Liverpool have played well from what I've read/heard in the first half, with Fulhams Defense and Keeper keeping them in the game. I think taking off Shelvey for Borini and switching to maybe a 532/5212 wouldn't be a bad move and would give a chance for us to try out a new system.
One change to tell you about at the break, with Liverpool bringing Jose Enrique on for Andre Wisdom.
The referee brings the first-half to a close with the scores level at 1-1. It's been a thoroughly entertaining affair at Craven Cottage so far, so join me after the break to see how this one finishes
GOAL! Fulham 1-1 Liverpool! Daniel Sturridge!
GOAL! Fulham 1-0 Liverpool! Dimitar Berbatov!
An early blow for Fulham now as Kieran Richardson's injury woes continue, with the player having to be substituted after picking up another knock, Urby Emanuelson the man to replace him.
Steven Michael Brassell says: Hi Ryan, I'm a died hard Liverpudlian & we need this victory today stating that we don't just rely on the likes of Suarez & Gerrard. Today should be at least 2-0 with Coutinho (Our Messi) getting the 1st & a surprise goal from Lucas to get us all 3 points. Henderson hopefully staring on the bench!!
Adam O'Connor writes: Cant see Liverpool winning this one, Fulham too strong at home & due a win, 3-1 to the Cottagers.
Adam, living in Hanoi, also says: Carragher's last two games in a red shirt will be inspiration for liverpool to get a result 2 - 0 reds..sturridge with 2.
We've got our first caller of the day, with Chris Gurrell emailing in: No Stevie, Agger or Suarez for us today Ryan, probably for the best that Agger and Stevie aren't playing, having treatment now for injuries so they're ready for next season. Not much for us to play for today as Everton are too far away now but a win is always good to get especially away from home. Not looking for a 5-2 repeat but I can see Liverpool winning maybe 2-1 or 3-1 today with Sturridge and possibly borini getting goals.
The team sheets have just come across my desk, but why not first take the time to get involved by emailing your thoughts or predictions to email@example.com and I'll share them here with our other readers.
Few would argue that there's value in a goalless draw at 14/1 but Fulham's Dimitar Berbatov has arguably been one of the signings of the season and did score a hat-trick against Liverpool in his Manchester United days, which is an 80/1 shot this time around.
