Fulham v Liverpool: What has been said?
Scott Parker knows his new-look Fulham defence will be up against it when they host Liverpool on Sunday.
“I think it’s a tough test, arguably the toughest test of the year for the defenders,” he said.
“The three or four players – Jota, Salah, Mane and Firmino – they’re top class who bring a different dynamic to most teams in the sense they look to run the space, get in behind you, get in on the counter, the speed, pace.
“So it’s going to have to be a big game from our defence at the weekend and they’re going to come up against a real hard test.
“There’s always tests in this division that they’ve come up against before and executed, so it’s a big challenge which I’m looking forward to seeing.”
