Fulham vs Liverpool: EFL Cup 2023/24 Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

Competing for the opportunity to secure a spot at Wembley against either Chelsea or Middlesbrough, Fulham and Liverpool will face off in the second leg of their EFL Cup semi-final at Craven Cottage on Wednesday night. Fulham took the lead in the initial clash at Anfield two weeks ago, but ultimately fell victim to Liverpool’s comeback prowess in a 2-1 defeat. However, the outcome of the semi-final is still uncertain.

Fulham showcased their goal-scoring prowess in a thrilling seven-goal encounter at Anfield in December, ultimately falling 4-3 to Liverpool. Marco Silva’s team took an early lead through Willian after a Virgil van Dijk mistake. Despite a resilient defensive effort, Curtis Jones’s fortunate equalizer and Cody Gakpo’s late goal led to a Reds comeback. Fulham, now in their first-ever EFL Cup semi-final, faces the challenge of overturning a first-leg deficit. Only 25% of teams have successfully reversed a first-leg loss in the EFL Cup semi-finals. Despite a recent setback against Chelsea, Fulham has a strong home record, winning five of their last six matches at Craven Cottage in various competitions.

Fulham’s last home defeat in an EFL Cup match while in the top flight dates back to September 2007. Liverpool, having won the first leg in nine previous EFL Cup semi-finals, advanced to the final in eight instances, with only Middlesbrough denying them in 1997-98. Liverpool, pursuing a historic fourth piece of silverware, is 90 minutes away from their 14th EFL Cup final appearance. In their latest Premier League match against Bournemouth, Liverpool overcame first-half frustration with a second-half goal spree, securing a 4-0 victory and extending their lead atop the league table. Klopp’s side has triumphed in three consecutive away fixtures since Christmas without conceding, although their last two visits to Craven Cottage ended in draws. Another draw would suffice in this crucial encounter.
