Fulham v Liverpool preview

Clint Dempsey and Brede Hangeland are back in contention for Fulham.
Midfielder Dempsey (hamstring) – the Cottagers’ all-time top scorer in the Premier League – and defender Hangeland (illness) missed Saturday’s 3-0 win at Sunderland.
Damien Duff will not play again this season after undergoing Achilles surgery, while Zoltan Gera and Rafik Halliche remain sidelined.
Liverpool striker Andy Carroll may have to settle for a place among the substitutes again.
The £35million club record signing came off the bench for a 20-minute appearance in last weekend’s win over Newcastle after recovering from a knee injury but the form of Dirk Kuyt and Luis Suarez may mean the England international has to wait for a starting opportunity.
Forgotten winger Milan Jovanovic (knee) and defender Fabio Aurelio (hamstring) both have a chance of being included.
Fulham (from): Schwarzer, Baird, Hangeland, Senderos, Hughes, Salcido, Etuhu, Davies, Murphy, Sidwell, Greening, Dempsey, Dembele, Zamora, Johnson, Stockdale, Kelly, Gudjohnsen, Kakuta.
Liverpool (from): Reina, Flanagan, Carragher, Skrtel, Johnson, Lucas, Spearing, Meireles, Rodriguez, Kuyt, Suarez, Gulacsi, Kyrgiakos, Wilson, Robinson, Shelvey, Poulsen, Cole, Carroll, Jovanovic, Aurelio.
