Become champions, says Klopp
miserable run of five consecutive defeats.
Klopp, though, bristled at suggestions Liverpool can put their visitors to the sword.
He said: “I would be an idiot if I talked about goal difference before that game. This is a really strange situation for Fulham, I can imagine how they feel.
“Their football is good, a lot of things are really good, they caused City a lot of problems (in a 2-0 Carabao Cup defeat).
“This game is a big challenge for all of us. If somebody goes there and expects an easy game then please stay at home. It will not be, it’s a tough job.”
Slavisa Jokanovic, meanwhile, has accused his Fulham players of lacking fight and effort.
He remains under intense pressure after their worst result of a disappointing start to 201819 came in Monday’s 1-0 defeat by Huddersfield, since when club coach Scott Parker has been linked with his position.
While Jokanovic dismissed those reports as “speculation” he recognises his team need to vastly improve if they are to survive, unexpectedly criticising them and demanding they do not throw away in a matter of months the Premier League status that took years to secure.
“We chose an ugly way to lose the game,” he said. “You must be proud, competitive and fight at the last moment.
“We are not showing this quality or effort, we must wake up and when we lose we must know how we lost; we cannot sell our skin so cheap.”
Shouting the odds: Jurgen Klopp has urged Liverpool to keep fighting
