Liverpool XI vs Fulham: Starting lineup, confirmed team news, injury latest for Premier League today
Diogo Jota is among the substitutes for Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Fulham tonight.
A rib injury followed by a fresh knock shortly before he scored the winner against Tottenham has left the Portuguese forward unable to train this week, and he is therefore once again among the substitutes.

“Diogo struggles, he got a knock in the back against West Ham and a bruised rib,” explained Jurgen Klopp.
“He couldn’t train before the game but could play without an injection, but he got another knock when he came on.
“He hasn’t trained since then so that one is a doubt, at least, but I hope he can recover.”
Roberto Firmino is also absent for Liverpool, who continue to be without Naby Keita, Stefan Bajcetic and Calvin Ramsay.
Luis Diaz continues in the starting line-up having returned against Spurs, while Darwin Nunez comes in as Cody Gakpo drops to the bench.
Jordan Henderson also gets the nod in midfield, alongside Fabinho and Curtis Jones, while Kostas Tsimikas replaces the rested Andy Robertson.
Starting XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Tsimikas, Henderson, Fabinho, Jones, Salah, Nunez, Diaz.
Subs: Gomez, Milner, Gakpo, Elliott, Jota, Robertson, Carvalho, Matip, Kelleher.
